This article will run you through the simple process of how to connect your Turtle Beach headset to Xbox One and how you can troubleshoot any connection issues in case you encounter one.
What to know before you Connect Turtle Beach Headset to Xbox
You can either have a wired or wireless headset which makes connecting it to Xbox One very easy and not stressful.
As long as your Turtle Beach headset has a standard 3.5mm audio jack, it should work with the Xbox One, Series S, or Series X.
The Turtle Beach headset is the first wireless headset to connect directly to Xbox One.
For wireless headphones, that kind of universal compatibility may not be applicable since Xbox One does not support Bluetooth audio, which is the most common wireless communication technology used by wireless devices such as headphones.
There’s an exclusive wireless technology developed by Microsoft called Xbox Wireless, for the Xbox One, Series S, and Series X.
The Xbox Wireless uses radio frequency (RF) technology that provides gamers two significant advantages over Bluetooth such as reduced latency and better sound quality, among other things.
In other words, Xbox Wireless is thought to be the better choice for people seeking premium wireless gaming experiences despite lacking universal compatibility with Bluetooth.
