The adapter is being built by Microsoft and will allow Xbox One owners to use third party headsets, as well as current generation headsets for the Xbox 360 which are not currently compatible with the Xbox One. 

The delay has prompted Turtle Beach to delay the release of its XO Four and XO Seven headsets until it is able to include the adapter with them.

In a press release the headset maker revealed this is not harming its relationship with Microsoft. 

“Microsoft has informed its partners in the Xbox One console launch that the Xbox One Headset Adapter, being built by Microsoft and provided to Turtle Beach for inclusion with new gaming headsets, will not be available until early 2014,” 

Microsoft’s director of strategic alliances, Brandon Powell said:

“Turtle Beach is a key partner with Microsoft in the new Xbox One console platform,” 

The Xbox One is due out November 22nd, but can you live with just the stock headset until the adapter is released?
