    Hi All,

    I am looking to but a pair of headsets to use with my XBox One. Any recommendation would be appreciated.

    Requirements:
    - DTS 5.1/7.1
    - Wireless
    - Optical/HDMI (or able to plug into XB1) base station
    - Microphone compatible with XB1's in-game chat
    - good sound quality
    - Price is not really an issue

    The reason I state DTS, is because I have read that DTS is superior to Dolby. Also the XB1 only outputs surround sound via its optical out as DTS.

    If there is nothing like this on the market (or soon to be), I would be willing to look at non-DTS, but then must have a HDMI in, so that it can process the SB1's uncompressed 5.1/7.1 Dolby.

    Thanks

    p.s. Turtle Beach i60's look pretty good, but they don't seem to have an optical-in, just usb. They seem to be more made for the mac rather than the XB1 (I may be wrong). Or, does the XB output DTS surround sound via usb?

    I'm pretty sure that there aren't any console dts headsets on the market. It seems that the headset manufacturers are waiting for the adapter to come out that will allow a direct connection to the controller. That is scheduled for a 14 March release.
