The Xbox One game console is one of the most popular console models. But to fully immerse yourself in the game, you need headphones. Most of them are now wireless models that make the process even more comfortable. After purchasing the headphones, you’ve probably started thinking about how to properly connect them to the console. Although the Xbox One does not support Bluetooth, this does not mean that you cannot connect your wireless headphones to the device. We advise you to read the tips below to help solve this problem.

What you will need

Without Bluetooth support, you can connect headphones to your Xbox console using an additional device – an adapter.

There are two types of adapters:

Bluetooth transmitter: the most common Bluetooth adapter that allows you to hear the audio transmitted from the Xbox One.

Bluetooth transmitter and receiver: allows you to hear transmitted sounds and use voice chat if the headphones have a built-in microphone.

Ways to connect Bluetooth headphones to Xbox One 

The way to connect any Bluetooth adapter depends on what type of Xbox controller you have. Regardless of which model you have, to unmute your controller, be sure to sync your controller with your Xbox One first.

1.Using an adapter and a 3.5mm connector on the controller

To successfully pair your Bluetooth headphones with your controller, you need to purchase a Bluetooth transmitter adapter that will be inserted into the controller’s audio jack. But please note that not every controller model has this connector. If it is available, then there will be no connection problems. Follow the steps below:

  • Plug the 3.5mm male connector of the Bluetooth transmitter into the audio jack on the Xbox One controller base.
  • Connect headphones to the device.

2.Using an adapter without a controller audio jack

This method is suitable for absolutely any controller.

  • First, insert the stereo headset adapter into the port on the bottom of the controller as shown in the illustration.
  • Take the Bluetooth transmitter and attach it to the 3.5mm wire hanging from the end of the stereo headset adapter.
  • Connect headphones to the device.

Summary

Since the Xbox One doesn’t have Bluetooth capabilities, using the transmitter to connect Bluetooth headphones to the Xbox is the only way out. Don’t forget to dive into the console’s audio settings and make the sound more surround for an even better immersive gaming experience.
