How do listen with headphones?
« on: 05:49 AM - 10/15/19 »
Hi I want to get a xim, but before I do I want to make sure how to connect my gaming headset!
Does it just plug into my Xbox one x controller as per normal?
I have seen a few YouTube videos on xim connection but they donít really specify headphone connection
Xbox one x
Hyperxcloud revolver headset
Thank you so much

Welcome to the forum, JohnnyBlaze9319.

If your headset has a 3.5mm jack, just plug it into the controller. If you have the first variation of the controller (without a 3.5mil port) you'll need to buy a Stereo Headset Adapter.

For better sound quality, you can also plug your headset into an external amp/DAC like the Turtle Beach DSS2, Fiio E10K or any of the DACs from Sound Blaster (I have the one in my sig).
