Xbox One Stereo Headset combo just $50!
Amazon.com has a great deal at just $50 for the Xbox One Stereo Headset, one of the accessories we recommended in our book, My Xbox One. It comes with the headset (which has a built-in microphone) as well as the controller adapter, which usually sells for at least $25 by itself. As you may or may not know, with the controller adapter, you can plug most headsets into the bottom of your Xbox One’s controller to send all sound output from the Xbox One. As a bonus, if you have your cable or satellite receiver box (or other device) pass through your Xbox One (and you really should), you’ll of course also hear that through the adapter. Translation: wireless sound from your TV. This makes, for instance, those late night TV or gaming sessions more private, i.e., you can turn off the sound on your TV or sound system completely. The headset itself is pretty good too, and it even works on many other products like Sony’s PlayStation 4 (again, through the controller), including for voice chat. If you’re feeling patriotic or just like camouflage, there’s also the Armed Forces Special Edition for only $10 more.
