“It took me around 15 minutes to complete.” says Kotaku user alysbub to solder is own custom Xbox One headset adapter. Since Microsoft is such a loving company and have made third party headsets unusable on the Xbox One without even having their own adapter ready to market (supposed to be released sometime early next year), this dude took matters into his own hands.
I really don’t like the cheap plastic chat headset included with the Xbox One. I have a soldering gun and a taste for adventure, so I might give it a shot. If you happen to ruin the controller in the process, you can always use the microphone on the Kinect for in-game chat while we all wait for third-party support.
