You'll have to pay $24.99 to use your own chat headset on Xbox One
Seems like quite a lot of money for a tiny bit of plastic.

Microsoft will charge you $24.99/£19.99 for the option to use your own chat headset with the Xbox One, thanks to the console's proprietary headset port and the new stereo headset adapter.
The adapter has its own volume controls and will allow users to adjust the levels of both chat and game audio, but the adapter does not allow for output of game audio to any headsets themselves--your favourite Astro/Turtle Beach/Tritton/etc headset will still need to be plugged into the Xbox One, TV, or receiver to get game audio. Both 3.5mm and 2.5mm jacks are supported.
The headset adapter will be available to purchase worldwide in March, hopefully in time for Titanfall.
"Plug your compatible headset into the Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter to chat with your fellow players, and enjoy the convenient volume controls right on the adapter," said Microsoft spokesperson Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb on his blog.
Additionally, Microsoft will also release its own stereo headset in March that comes with an adapter included. This will retail for $79.99/£59.99.
"The Stereo Headset pairs a premium, full-range (20Hz-20kHz) audio experience with a unidirectional microphone taking advantage of Xbox One’s Skype-powered chat audio codec," said Hryb.
