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.
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
Im trying to save $30 with doing this but i got the wires shown on both male cord and xbox one head set wire my turtle beach talk back wire is the Green, Red and Gold, i followed the instructions and i get nothing my friends do not hear nor do i here them with it plugged in some help would be nice !
it work if u need help just ask me
it work very good with the black part it is so but fun and better
Has anyone figured out how to fix the echo problem? If so, could you please let me know.
I also used the black wire instead of blue and mine works perfectly. I also preformed a controller update in the settings ( which u need to do if u buy the actual adapter ) Not sure if that allows the two wires to be grounded together or not because I left the blue wire unconnected
i also used the black wire and it works perfect
but i did do a xb1 controller update, which ur supposed to do if u get the xb adapter. i think it might internally disconnect the blue wire , just an idea tho
