More Information/External Sources

The Elite Series 2 includes many of the features included in the original Elite, such as an interchangeable D-Pad and thumb sticks. The controller also includes new adjustable tension thumb sticks, shorter hair trigger locks and new rubberized grips. The controller was also bundled with its own carrying case that doubles as a charger. The controller also includes a built-in rechargeable battery.
Plans for a revised version of the Elite controller were leaked in January 2018, with a number of new features, including USB-C connector, and other hardware improvements such as three-level Hair Trigger Locks, adjustable tension for the thumbsticks, revised rubber grips, three user-defined profile settings, and Bluetooth connectivity, which had been introduced with the revised Xbox One S controller in 2016. At E3 2019, Microsoft announced they would begin taking pre-orders for the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2; the controller would be available starting on November 4, 2019. In general, accessories (such as the thumbs ticks and paddles) are not interchangeable between the Series 2 and Series 1 Elite controllers. The case bundled with the Elite 2 included a removable charging dock (Model 1924) for the controller's built-in battery and a pass-through to connect a USB-C cable with a port on the dock.
Firmware updates
Either Windows 10 PC with the App, Xbox One, or Xbox Series X|S is required to update controllers' firmware.
To update firmware on the controller, install Xbox Accessories App from Microsoft Store and connect the controller either with cable or wireless adapter.

Chat Headset

The Xbox One Wired Chat Headset (Model 1564) is a single-ear headset with a boom microphone permanently wired to an adapter that plugs into the rectangular expansion port on the bottom edge of the Xbox One controller; it also engages the two round holes flanking the expansion port with plastic alignment prongs for stability. There are three buttons on the adapter, which allow the player to adjust chat volume and mute the microphone. A version of the Chat Headset was later available with a standard 3.5 mm headphone jack instead of the adapter; on the updated version, the controls were on a small plastic pod in line with the cable.

Stereo Headset Adapter

The original Xbox One Wireless Controller (Model 1537) has no 3.5-millimeter headset jack on the bottom edge of the controller. The Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter (Model 1626) allows the use of stereo headsets with 3.5-millimeter headphone jacks using the rectangular expansion port on the bottom center of all Microsoft Xbox One controllers, including the original (Model 1537). The Stereo Headset Adapter includes five buttons which allow the player to balance chat and in-game audio output levels, adjust overall volume, and mute the chat microphone. It was available both separately and in a bundle with the Xbox One Stereo Headset (Model 1610).


The Microsoft Chatpad keyboard attachment (Model 1676), similar to the Xbox 360 Messenger Kit, was unveiled at Gamescom on August 4, 2015. The Chatpad also includes the functions of the Stereo Headset Adapter and was bundled with the updated version of the Chat Headset terminating in a 3.5 mm headphone jack. In addition, the Chatpad features two dedicated programmable keys; the default behavior allowed the player to record screenshots (X1) and gameplay clips (X2) without using a software menu, if that functionality is enabled in the Xbox Dashboard settings.

Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows

The Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows (Model 1713) is a USB-A dongle with a single button that allows computers using the Windows 10 and Windows 11 operating system to connect with Xbox controllers, headsets, and similar accessories via the proprietary Xbox Wireless protocol rather than Bluetooth. It was announced in June 2015 and began shipping in October of that year. Support for Windows 7 and 8.1 was added through new drivers in December 2015. It is equipped with a single white LED to indicate pairing and wireless connection status.

A revised version, now named the Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows 10 (Model 1790) was introduced in August 2017 with a smaller size, reducing the risk of obstructing adjacent USB ports. The revised Model 1790 drops support for Windows 7 and 8.1.
