Xbox One 2.5mm Headset Adapter
Hi, I am having an issue that hopefully someone can answer please?I have an older Turtle Beach XP500 Wireless headset.To get this working with my Xbox One, I had to buy the adapter kit (puck and cable and m-f adaptor).The original adapter set up has the puck with a 3.5mm male - 2.5mm female adapter included which I also wish to do away with as it is an unnecessary extra link in the chain.As the cable is now broken (and no way of getting proper pin out from it), I wish to just make a 3.5mm (puck side) to 2.5mm (plugs into headset).Unfortunately the guide shows 'modding' the originally supplied headset, which I don't want to do as I want to make it easier to re make new leads up if and when they break.As it doesn't show the puck side of things, apart from which wires go to which solder point, I'm kind of stuck. The issue I have is Turtle beach's wiring may their proprietory way and also MS also tend to do the same.Any help grateully received.
