Using Noise Cancelling 700 Headphones for Gaming on Xbox One X
I just wanted to let folks know how I got my Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 to work with both sound and microphone with my Xbox One X.
In order to do this, you'll need a wired connection to your Xbox controller. I use an Xbox Elite controller but the normal controller should work the same.
I used the cable for the QC25 Android device to make this work. (Please note that I don't believe the Apple version of this cable will work). I got this one:
You plug that into your Bose 700 headset and then into your Xbox controller via an adapter. Plugging in directly did not work for me.
Here is the adapter that I have, but it is older and no longer for sale:
Here is a newer version that I assume would work the same (not sure if someone else can verify):
One caveat, when I used the QC25 cable to plug into the Xbox One 3.5mm Afterglow adapter the Left and Right channels were reversed. I just so happened to have an extra adapter cable that came with the Afterglow Xbox adapter that fixed this. But I can confirm that I got both Audio and Mic to work with this set up.
Just wanted to pass along these details because the 700s are new and I couldn't find any other info online yet about this.
Hope this helps!
