Xbox One and Chat Headset: Awesomeness in a Bundle

August 20, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

When the new Microsoft Xbox One was unboxed, we got to know what all came in the bundle. What’s most interesting about the whole pack is the presence of something you would have always wanted.

A video, released by Microsoft, revealed the unboxing of new Xbox One. Along with it, tumbled down many new details about the forthcoming console and accessories.

What interests us most is the presence of the Xbox One Chat Headset in the bundle. Wait a minute, didn’t we hear the company earlier stating that the Xbox One bundle will not include a headset?


Looks like, Microsoft has decided to think different and in this case. Whatever that is, you will get a new light weight headset bundled with the gadget and it offers three times the sampling rate of the previous edition Xbox 360.

The control buttons for volume and mute are placed at the connection point with the game pad, enables the user to control the volume without touching the headphone. This makes sure that full involvement of the user is in the game.

Microsoft has made it clear that the new controller for Xbox One features more than 40 design improvements.

The controller allows the user wireless gaming experience, using standard AA or rechargeable AA batteries. If you want wired play, you can use the standard micro USB port in the device.

The chat headset, included in the bundle comes for a price of $24.99. The chat headset allows users to communicate with each other while playing Xbox Live on a number of online platforms.

The manufacturer claims that the headset has the ability to filter out television noise along with picking up even the small commands.

The old headsets which were used along with Xbox 360 are not compatible with the new device, but soon a special adaptor might be made available for Xbox 360 users to make those headsets compatible with the new console.


The box also contains a HDMI cable, which is of category 2, rated for 1080p, 3D and 4K according to the HDMI 1.4 spec.

Most probably, the new console will come after the release of the most anticipated Xbox games like FIFA 14 and Call of Duty Ghosts. So the gamers will need to wait for their favorite games in the upcoming gaming console.

We also hear rumors claiming that the device will be launched in November. Stay tuned.
