I have not seen that on the TB site. Is that from XBONE or TB?
I know the upgrade offer on TB end in 24 hours.

Got my UPC validation a few days ago from TB.
Per that -
"Once the Xbox One™ audio adapter is available for shipment (expected between March 1, 2014 and June 30, 2014) you will receive another email with shipment information."

So much for a "few days."  :(

I am a former PX5 owner and I can confirm they sound nothing like a REAL pair of headphones. Everything sounds so unrealistic and the bass is horrendous. It sounds like a toy compared to actual headphones.

I did enjoy all the features the PX5 had such as being TRULY all wireless (except for the 360 where you needed the chat cable going to the controller, but there was a puck you could plug into your controller to make it truly all wireless), and the ability to stream music over bluetooth from my PC. But sound quality wise, it doesn't even come close.

Never really owned any other brand. :-/ Which would you recommend and why?

I'm also curious about this.... I used PX5s for about 2 years and really loved them, then I got particularly mad at BLOPSII one day and busted the plastic on them. :\ I upgraded to XP510s all excited about the support for 5GHz wireless (less interference!) and while the sound has cut out less the actual quality of the sound between the PX5s and the XP510s has decreased significantly... I've been rather sad about it. :(

That being said I've been thinking for awhile about selling my XP510s on the cheap and coming up with an alternative set up. Wired or not, I don't really care that much, I just want to make sure I am satisfied with whatever I shell the money out for. Anybody have any suggestions on a good pair of headphones w/chat or headset to get away from the TB? I don't know much about how mixamps and stuff work all I know is when I looked into it a few years ago (with ASTROs) it seemed pretty pricey, even in comparison to TB.

yeah, tons of info in that thead.. but the question is, how much do you want to spend?  throw out a cost, and I'm sure people will recommend a good setup for your budget.

Awesome! Thanks for the link. As far as my budget goes that depends on how much I'd be able to sell my XP510s for... I could probably get 200ish out of 'em I think, and I wouldn't mind dropping another 100-150ish to get a good setup going.

It's looking like people highly recommend the Earforce DSS over there (based on the first page at least) coupled with a few variations on Stereo headphones... I've never had experience with that, so how does the "surround" experience compare to surround sound headsets like the X41s or PX5s?

Also how exactly do people get chat working with those set ups? That's also been one of my hang ups. I'll of course keep reading over in the other thread but 155+ pages is a lot to sift through haha
