    The elephant in the room: The XBox controller is already wireless, and has a jackpoint for a wired headphone/headset. And yes, you can do dolby atmos through a pair of wired apple earbuds and hell I even watch movies that way and they sound superb.
    To be fair though, even when plugging into a controller wired headphone is still an annoyance sometimes.

    You were literally shaking your head all over the place when the screen said KEEP THE HEADSET STILL WHILE UPDATING!! You messed with the sound quality by doing that and this made this an extremely unfair review. You also forgot to mention a few key features….

    Sad that regular blue tooth adapter still doesn't work with this headset on the PC. have to have the microsoft adapter, STILL. Literally have the insignia blu tooth adapter and the headset won't pair with it at all. Such a let down. Won't pair at all with my PC, and it's pissing me off. It pairs just fine with a USB C cable. Doesn't pair at all with a blue tooth adapter at all. Returning this piece of crap.

    The turtle beach stealth 600X gen 2 sounds way better than this set, i own both of them and the 600X gen 2 blows the microsoft headset away ! The funny thing it cost 80 bucks instead of 100 so microsoft do your homework and dont make gadgets just to show off and drag about it !

    It’s just the mute on/ mute off feature.
    What he is saying isn’t true so he is probably
    getting paid of by Microsoft .

    I like the look of some of those shoes, but $135-155? Idk bro. That’s like 28-31 bjs downtown worth of sneaker. Normally I only like spending 9-12 bjs on a shoe. Tell them to cut their 99000% mark up down to like 200% and I’d buy a pair and give you a tip in equal value to what you’d receive for me buying them

I am also having issues with the Bluetooth cutting out when listing to audio with this head set on my iPhone (I know my iPhone bluetooth is working fine, tested it with 8 other speakers/headsets). I RMA'd my first pair, and the replacement pair is doing the same thing; any thoughts?
