Introduction: Xbox 360 to Xbox One Headset DIY Conversion (Turtle Beach)

This is a quick and simple way to use your old headset for Xbox 360 on Xbox One

Step 1:

Collect all the tools you will need for this project. You will also need the 2.5mm controller patch cable from your old headset, and the new headset from your Xbox One.

Step 2:

Disassemble your new Xbox One headset, or simply cut the cable near the mic/speaker.

Step 3:

Cut one end off of the the small headphone cord from your Xbox 360 Headset.

Step 4:

Strip the wires so you can clearly separate and identify each one for both cables. There will be 3 wires from the 360 cable (Red, White and Gold [or Green, Red and Gold]) and 4 wires from the Xbox One Cable (Blue, White, Black and Gold).

Step 5:

Splice the wires in the following Xbox360 - XboxOne pairs:
White - White
Red - Blue
Gold - Black & Gold

Or (with newer Xbox360 Cables)

Red-White
Green-Blue
Gold-Black & Gold

Step 6:

Keep the wires separated and gently wrap them with electrical/duct tape. Then enjoy your new adapter cable!

Can anyone explain why nothing happens with the aux fully in, but when I take it out half way I can hear people clearly, and they can hear me, but they also get the echo?? I’ve already tried swapping the blue and black.

or you can get an adapter like a smart person, 4 bucks on amazon

Solder grounds for echo. Completely solved the issue.

HEY YOU!

Ya you, you need to burn off the plastic that is coated on the wire. If you DO NOT use solder you have to burn the ends and wipe off. Use a lighter on the wire and you will see it burn off.

I twisted all these wires and im getting absolutely nothing. I know i should solder them but i just wanna make sure that its going to work before i go out and buy an iron. I feel like i should be getting at least a little bit of a connection without soldering but when i say nothing i mean NOTHING. Even tried switching blue and black. Can anyone help

You have to burn the wires. There is a plastic coating on the wire itself. Just use a lighter an you will see. Burn off the part that burns then wipe off and then connect it to the other end.

Hey there guys, Just a tip for you, Don't use the black wire from the headset. Tape it off. It uses 1v and could cause the echoing. :)

it worked flawlessly the modification was easy didnt cost anything to do and the first wireing job had no echo and mt friends heard me and i heard them as clear as a bell, i would upload pictures but for somereason the uploader isnt working

Hey I still have the echo after swapping wires I have the X12

I don't know I didn't have any problem no echo try rewireing everything again and out both blue and black together an then remove one and see if it works if it doesn't put that wire back on and remove the other one and see if that works don't tape anything up untile you get on live and talk to someone to see if you have echo

Sweet thanks I'll try and let u know I got full sound like they can hear me I hear them it's just if I don't put it on mute then they hear themselves echo. Maybe speaker feedback into mic or something.

Swap blue for black (or vise versa). And read through as I've posted this loads now! The blue cable works for some, the black cable for others. Don't connect the other to gold just tape it up.

i got it hooked all up an works good but theres a echo my friend say when they talk to me any toughts why

Swap black wire for blue wire. (I feel like I'm repeating myself?) Give it a go and let me know if it works, worked for me.
