Xbox One doesn’t support third-party Xbox 360 headsets at present, but as expected, the modding scene has shown that it can be done with a little technical know-how.

The folk over at Instructables – who also provide the above image – ran their magic all over the Xbox One to make it happen. All it requires it the official headset bundled with Microsoft’s console, the ability to solder and a few bits and bobs outlined through the link.

The whole process is detailed on their page, so check it out if you want to use your headsets with Xbox One. It was tested out using a paid of Astro A40s and is said to have worked just fine.

Meanwhile, Turtle Beach is offering free headset upgrades for those looking to use their Xbox 360 devices on Xbox One. You have until the end of January to sign up for a free, official adapter. It’ll be mailed to you in March, which is quite a bit away.
