Let’s move on to the next one which is how to connect your Bluetooth headset to your Xbox One.
Can you connect beats to ps4?
Beats are not authorised PS4 bluetooth headphones, so that would be a no. But there are dongles that you can buy to connect your Beats headphones with a PS4. But if you truly want no trouble, then it’s better to purchase a PS4 supported Bluetooth headphone.
What are PS4 Supported Bluetooth Headphones?
PS4 does not let you plug in any Bluetooth headphone device. There are only a few devices that can be plugged to your PS4, so if you want immersive gameplay, then you’ll be better off buying a PS4 supported Bluetooth headphone.
How to connect Unsupported Bluetooth to PS4?
There are ways to connect an unsupported Bluetooth headphone to your PS4 using a dongle that you can buy separately. If you have purchased an expensive unsupported Bluetooth headset and don’t want to change it, then you can try using a converter or a dongle.
How do I connect my headset to my Xbox one?
Connecting your Bluetooth headset to your Xbox One is slightly different. There are three amazing ways for you to do it depending on when your Xbox was manufactured.
For Xbox Ones manufactured after 2015
The first one applies for people who have an Xbox One that was manufactured after 2015. In order to connect the headset, you need to attach it to your controller. Connect it directly to the 3.5mm audio plug. And there you have it!
XBOX One manufactured after 2015
Step 1 :
You will need to purchase an Xbox One headset stereo adapter.
Step 2 :
After getting one, you connect it to the USB port at the bottom of the controller.
The big advantage for this one over the previous method is that you can utilize the adapter for adjusting the ratio of the game’s volume of any microphone. This way, you can also adjust the overall volume of the headset too. You can also turn the microphone off in this method.
And that’s about it.
Do take note however that some headsets or headphones may or may not work as usual. I do suggest that headsets made by Microsoft are the ones that may work well on this particular device.
There is also a THIRD way in which you can connect your Bluetooth headset to your XBOX one.
The third and final method requires a separate purchase, which is a Bluetooth Adapter.
What are Bluetooth Adapters anyway? These are often used for devices like car radios that do not have a Bluetooth module.
All you have to do now is to insert the 3.5mm jack plug onto the controller and attach the Bluetooth module in an appropriate manner.
I really hope that one day Microsoft can release a good update on their existing Xbox line-up. But fret not, because these techniques that we’ve discussed can work and there are many many people who have done it already.
So that’s about it! This is a helpful guide on how to connect your Bluetooth headset to Sony PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
