roads, as it was pointed out Hori came out with wired touchpad support -- that means we can too. We aren't going to put an audio jack on and ICs in XIM, so, you'd still have to have the controller plugged in. And what good is wireless support? Are you saying we should make XIM battery powered? I'm just not seeing the benefit here.

That cable that cant be longer than 5m across my living room, thatís what Wifi would be good for. Id give it power from the other side of the room. Battery powered sure wont compute.
4pin jack and XIM audio solution? Why not? Spare us from the Mixamp quality and other cable chaos that the DSS brings. Id buy an audio enabled Xim.

You are underestimating the complexity of audio and doing audio well (both in terms of ADC/DSP component selection quality and board layout). I'd rather not touch it because headset makers aren't going to be sure their analog devices work well with anything other than standard console controllers. And Xbox headset connections aren't standard. We are looking at the extension cable issue.

blame ms for not using a standard 3.5 and making it proprietary so they can sell cheaply designed plastic pucks that they could overcharge for.  ??? MS could have easily gone the standard way like sony and not moneygrub

Extension cable should be something that you make and test working a 100%.

Audio I do like the PS4 gold headset but for the One there is nothing I can use. I have enough of the cable clutter setups.

It is, and is something that is actively being worked on.

I don't think Sony would license a product that works on PS4 & Xbox, They would want OBsiV to make a separate XIM/PIM for PlayStation only :/
This would have been my comment, if not already made here.  :P  Sony's not going to have you putting their chip in a device that also has one from Microsoft.

In other words, Sony won't let us sell a cross console product with Sony branding on it. It would have to be a different SKU.

Not sure about that, is that the case with the splitfish? If its chipped by Microsoft also that would not work but even then I am not sure about it. Really depends on the contract which you haven't seen so far. Its licensing and nothing about exclusivity.  If logitech would license a mouse, you think it would be not working on PC? I doubt it wont.
Even if you have to make the Xim console specific, then good for you, you sell more XIM5. If there are some real benefits the user base will accept it.

Splitfish don't have anything announced for X1 yet, only PS4 specific peripherals..... So maybe they are trying to get a license from Microsoft too?
I just wanted to say that you are a phenomenal gamer. You make it look so easy and your gameplay has this commanding "tone" to it (i.e. not frantic -- more of a dominating calm :) ).
