How to use headset with xim4?
« on: 06:14 AM - 12/14/16 »
First off, sorry if this is in the wrong location or has been stated before. Please just link me or move the topic, i appreciate the help in advance.

I just ordered 2 xim 4s, (1 for each house I currently bounce between), and want to know if i can leave everything setup and ready to play at each house, besides my headset, can i just plug the hyperx headset straight into the controller like i normally would, even though its connected to the xim4 and my keyboard/mouse? that way i can use the microphone in party chat and xbox/skype?

Welcome to the community. Are you playing on xbox one? If so chat is plug and play with the controller. If you're playing on PS4 there is more to it.

The DS4 controller doesn't use the cable for chat data, it uses bluetooth so our chat passthrough is ignored by the PS4. But you still have options!

You can use a USB headset, a stereo headset + a Y cable connected to a USB sound card, or a bluetooth adapter that will allow you to pair with a bluetooth headset.

So I have just bought an Xbox one s, so does a normal chat headset work plugged into the controller plugged into the xim4? Or do I have to buy a usb set like on my ps4.
