So an Xbox One is HDMI only by the looks of it and I want to use an LCD screen with no speakers. What are the options for sound output?

  • I am aware of the optical output. I also may try a hdmi set top box with hdmi out as sound going through rca out.

    What do you intend to use for speakers? Do you have a receiver with speakers? Speakers with analog input? RCA input? 3.5mm jack? Do you intend on using headphones?

  • I intend on using any option I could. Rca or 3.5 mm are preferred though I figure someone had to ask the question about sound and one.

  • Headphones, a t.v, bluetooth speakers, an Alienware. Anything. A headset or Kinect if it was possible.

You have several options:

  • If you have a receiver with an HDMI/Optical input, you can connect those directly to your Xbox with the appropriate cables. If you have speakers/headphones with optical input, you can connect those to the console directly as well.
  • You can use the Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter to connect 3.5mm headphones directly to your controller.
  • You can get an optical to analog audio converter to output the sound to speakers with RCA input.

    Stereo headset adapter was the way to go. $37AU.

  • However if there are more ways, as I only by chance found the coin to get the adapter. Please feel free to add for the ones who have to improvise.

It depends on your speaker system. If the system has HDMI in/out, you can do it like this: enter image description here

If its Toslink in, you can do it like this:

As far as i know, there is no way to get a 3.5 mm jack out from an xbox one.

Xbox controller to 3.5mm out to rca then to amp. Easy.

  • Old Xbox controllers can have an attachment you can buy, to allow 3.5mm connection to them,(headphones). So a cable from a $2 shop, rca to headphones(3.5mm) should allow sound from your controller to your stereo. New controllers already have the 3.5mm connection.
