The Xbox One doesn't have connections for analog sound.  While some of you have fancy headsets that make love to your ear-holes through the wonderful sound they produce, us lowly folk must make due with what we have.  I have an older headset from Turtle Beach.  It isn't great but it's not too bad either.  It has a distinct lack of digital-in.  So, until I can afford one of those sweet ear-hole fornicating headsets, I went on Newegg and got myself a digital to analog converter for less than $20.

I can't complain about it.  As much as I might like to.  It does what it's supposed to do.  Optical cable goes in one end, analog out on the other and viola.  I have in-game sound.  It's a cheap fix for those of us with other people in the house that may not want to be bothered by your noise.

TL,DR?  Here's a video.  (This is the first time I've ever talked on camera.  As you can tell, not very comfortable with it yet.  But, hey, that's a Dtoid shirt!)
