    Hi all

    Sorry if this has already been covered but I am looking into upgrading come November and as stated there is no optical connection on the Xbox Series X so I want to check how I connect my headphones?

    Many thanks

    Seconded, other companies have been very forward leaning and have dedicated sites dealing with this issue, Razer has been silent.

    Thanks for the links. I did some testing on my setup last night without the optical cable. It seems you do lose 7.1, but because of the way the spatial audio works (Windows Sonic, Dolby Atmos and DTS: X for headphones) you can use spatial audio, as it just needs stereo headphones. I prefer spatial to 7.1 so that works for me, but if you want 7.1 then it's still an open question, and it's pretty unsat if this is the only option as the product really should be able to do 7.1 on the new console.
