Do you have a pair of JBL earbuds that you want to use with your Xbox One? If so, connecting them is easy! In this blog post, we’ll walk you through the simple steps needed to get your earbuds up and running with your console. Let’s get started.

Step 1:

Plug in the 3.5mm cable from your headphones into the 3.5mm port on the bottom of your controller. This port is located on the underside of the controller, near where your left hand rests when playing games.

Step 2:

Once the cable is plugged in, power on both your controller and headphones by pressing their respective power buttons. Depending on which model of headphones you own, their power button may be located on the side or back of the headset itself.

Step 3:

Go to Settings > Devices & Accessories > Accessories > [Your Controller] > Volume & Chat Audio and make sure that “Headset volume” and “Chat mixer” are set to 100%. Once these settings are adjusted, you should be able to hear game audio through both ears when using your headphones!

Step 4:

Finally, go back to Settings > Devices & Accessories > Accessories > [Your Controller] and toggle “Headset mic” ON if it’s not already enabled. This will ensure that your friends can hear you while gaming online!


Connecting a pair of JBL earbuds to an Xbox One is easy! All you need is a 3.5mm cable, a few minutes of free time, and access to an Xbox One console (and controller). After following these four simple steps, you can enjoy all of your favorite games in crisp audio clarity like never before! Happy gaming!
