Are you looking for a way to connect your Bose earbuds to your Xbox? If so, we’re here to help. This guide will walk you through the process step by step so that you can start enjoying your favorite gaming soundtracks with the best sound quality possible. Let’s get started. 

Step 1: Connect Your Headphones 

The first thing you need to do is connect your headphones. To do this, locate the 3.5mm audio jack on your headphones and plug it into the port labeled “Headset” on the back of your Xbox One controller. Once connected, make sure that the volume slider on your controller is set to an appropriate level; otherwise, you won’t be able to hear any sound coming out of your headphones. 

Step 2: Set Up Audio Output 

Once you have connected your headphones, it’s time to set up audio output from your Xbox One console. To do this, navigate to Settings > Display & Sound > Audio Output on the home screen and select “Headset & Speakers” from the dropdown menu. You should now see a pop-up window appear with options for both “Chat Audio” and “Game Audio.” Select both options and then press “OK” at the bottom of the window. 

Step 3: Enjoy!
