Neither Xbox Series X nor the Xbox series S offers native Bluetooth support, meaning that you will unfortunately not be able to connect your Bluetooth audio devices directly to your console. The cable that comes with your headphones does not have a microphone, and unofficial Bluetooth solutions may result in latency issues. So how can you use the Bose QC35/700 with your Xbox X or S and chat with your friends?
An easy, solid and cheap solution to this problem is getting a Bose QC25 cable. This cable has a microphone and works for Bose QuietComfort 35 and 700 on both Xbox X and S. As the name suggests, this cable was originally made for the Bose QC25, however it works excellent for both the Bose 700 and QC35.
There are two versions of this cable, and it is important that you choose the correct one. Click here to get the correct cable (samsung/android version) from Amazon.
See our YouTube tutorial below where we demonstrate this and more using a Bose QC35 and Xbox X.
Setup is very simple. The cable can be plugged in directly to your Xbox controller using the 3.5 mm headphone jack. The Xbox console will automatically recognise your Bose QC35 or 700 as a headset and you’re good to go!
This cable can also serve as a good backup in other purposes than gaming, for example during meetings or phone calls when your battery has run out. You can also use your headphone’s active noise reduction in combination with the cable to enjoy a superior and immersive gaming experience!
