Turtle Beach offers headset upgrade for Xbox One owners

Turtle Beach Ear Force XP Seven Review front angle top

The selection of Xbox One headsets is fairly slim at the moment, but Turtle Beach has a solution in the form of an audio adapter that allows a handful of its headsets to plug into the new console’s controller. For a limited time, the company is offering that adapter as a free upgrade for those that purchase a participating headset between November 22, 2013, and January 30, 2014.

If you’ve nabbed a Turtle Beach XP400, XP510, XP SEVEN, or X42 since the console’s launch – or if you plan to get one in the next two months – then you’re eligible. To redeem the offer, simply click this link and follow the instructions from there. Note that you’ll need a valid receipt, and a photo of said receipt in order to get your adapter. Once you submit all of the necessary info and documentation, Turtle Beach will take it from there.

The Xbox One ships with a chat headset in the box, and the new Kinect is also chat-capable, but Turtle Beach cans allow you to pipe both game audio and chat into your ears. There’s only a limited range of options available specifically for the Xbox One in the third-party space, and Turtle Beach’s offer may be preferable since you effectively get a headset that works with both the Xbox One and Xbox 360.
