Introduction: Turtle Beach to Xbox ONE Adapter... the Right Way!!!
I decided to do an instructable on how to make your own Turtle Beach to Xbox One adapter. Mine works perfectly and looks like I went to GameStop and bought it. There is no electrical tape or spliced wires and it is very durable.
Step 1: Gather Tools and Materials
You will need:
1. Xbox ONE headset
2. Turtle Beach chatback cable for Xbox 360
3. Soldering Pen and Solder
4. T5 Torx Screwdriver (not shown)
5. Precision Philips Screwdriver (not shown)
6. Long Tweezers (optional)
Step 2: Remove Cosmetic Cover.
Remove the cosmetic cover from the Xbox ONE headset controller end by gently prying with your thumbnail and pulling out and away. Do this on both ends of the puck separately.
Step 3: Remove Second Cover From XBOX One Headset
Remove the second cover by removing the five T5 Torx screws as shown.
Step 4: Remove Cover From Turtle Beach Controller Puck.
Remove the cover from the Turtle Beach puck by removing the two screws that are shown in the picture.
Step 5: De-solder.
De-solder the wires from each of the pucks by gently pulling on one wire at a time with the tweezers and place the tip of the soldering pen into the solder holding the wires on the board.
Step 6: Trim Tension Relief.
The tension relief needs to be trimmed in order to fit into the Xbox ONE controller puck. Look at the hole in the puck that it goes into and trim accordingly. DO NOT CUT TOO DEEP!!!
Step 7: Solder.
Solder wires from the Xbox 360 puck into the Xbox One puck matching the Red wire to HPL (headphone left). The white wire connects to MIC (microphone) and the black or bare wire connects to GND (ground). Hold each wire individually with the tweezers and place onto the pool of hardened solder. Place the tip of the soldering iron down on the wire until the pool of solder melts and surrounds the wire. Remove the soldering iron and allow the solder to harden. Move on to the next wire.
Step 8: Re-assemble.
Re-assemble the puck in the reverse order that you disassembled it.
Step 9: Enjoy!
Enjoy your new Turtle Beach to Xbox One adapter!
