The Xbox 360 headset is not compatible with the Xbox One without an adapter. However, there are several ways to use the Xbox 360 headset on the Xbox One. In this blog post, Dreamcheeky will show you how to use Xbox 360 headset on Xbox One without Adapter.

How To Use Xbox 360 Headset On Xbox One Without Adapter

Use Aluminum Foil

Aluminum Foil

The adapter for the Xbox 360 headset is 2.5mm. The pin will not fit into the jack if you are trying to use these headphones with your Xbox One. You can change the pin on your headphones, but that’s something we’ll do later. Let’s start with the easiest and least labor-intensive options.

Take some aluminum foil and fold it neatly three to four times. You don’t want to crumple it as a seamless current must flow through it.

Wrap the pin at 2.5mm with foil and wrap it tightly. Then insert the foil into the jack. It is possible for the foil to get stuck in the jack. This is normal. It can be pulled out using a pair of tweezers if you wish.

Apply enough foil to ensure that the pin fits snugly. Test them once you have finished.

While you may miss out on some features, you will still be able to take advantage of the amazing sound quality that Xbox 360 headsets provide.

Using Copper Wire

Using Copper Wire

Wrapping the 2.5mm headset jack with a copper wire is another cheap and fast way to use Xbox 360 headset without an adapter. This is not a Hail Mary, and it is not guaranteed to work. However, it is better than performing surgery on your headphones.

Wrap a piece of copper wire around the pin. You don’t need to do it too often. It is enough to get the jack to sit. You can damage the jack by using more, but it will not work if you use less.

Begin at the tip and work your way up. Before you try it, cover as many pins as possible.

Surgical Intervention

Instead of stuffing our jack with foil, we can do it the right way. You do this by connecting the wires from your 360 headset to the wires on the Xbox One’s 3,5mm pin. You will need both your Xbox headsets and a wire cutter.

First, trim your Xbox 360 cable right above the jack. Next, remove the wires from the jack.

Next, trim the Xbox One cable to a length of about 3 inches beyond the pin. Finally, strip the wires the same way. Now it is time to splice them together. It is annoying that the colors of the cables are not the same. You will need to determine which wires should be matched together.

You don’t have to rush; it is not a matter of defusing a bomb.

The wires on older 360 headsets were white, red, and gold. However, the Xbox One has white and blue wires. We spliced white with red, blue with blue, and then the two gold wires together.

Further complicating matters, the wires on a newer Xbox 360 headset will be red, green, or black/gold. You can match red and white with green, blue with green, or black/gold/gold with yellow in this instance.

After you have completed your splicing and verified that the headphones work properly, cover any exposed wiring with electrical tape.
