How to: Pair your Headphones, Earbuds to Xbox OneUpdated 2 years ago

Connecting Bluetooth Headphones to Xbox One

Xbox Wireless is able to connect without cables to the Xbox One, however it is through their proprietary Xbox Wireless instead of Bluetooth. Because it is at a different radio frequency than standard Bluetooth (2.4GHz) headphones are unable to connect via Bluetooth. However, this doesn’t mean that all hope is lost when using your JLab Play Pro Gaming Over-Ear Headset, as there are other ways to connect.

Connect directly to the console: If your headset comes with a 3.5mm AUX Console Cord, as all JLab gaming headphones do, you can listen and chat through your headset. All you have to do is attach your 3.5mm AUX cord to your headset and plug into the console in the port labeled S/PDIF.

Connect through the Xbox One controller audio jack: Using the same 3.5mm AUX console cord, connect them to your JLab headset. Then grab your Xbox One controller and on the bottom left hand side you will see a port that you will be able to plug into.
