Nice one. Hopefully they'll have some left today.

I doubt you will get an honest review on here as most people overrate Aldi products, I know this because I've refunded many over the years. Does look quite cheap but suppose what do you expect at the budget end. Personally I think better are available on the web if you want a universal budget headset but I would go for the official kit every time for an extra few quid

It doesn't come with the adapter, so you'll need to fork another £20(ish) for one of those.

Great thanks

Do you know for sure it doesn't come with the xbox 360 adapter? Have they sold these before.

Not trying to disprove you on this, just want to know as I was thinking of getting a couple of these for my kids.

Where does it say it's for xbox one?

I haven't got this set, but I have got the Maxtek Bluetooth headphones and for the £20 I paid I'm over the moon, genuinely can't fault them.

I am guessing it has the standard socket but you will need various adapters depending on platform

I always find Aldi are fine about returns. I've never had an issue with quality from there either (this pc is 9 years old and bought from Aldi, I use it for work every weekday). If you are unsure ask on the till if you can return it if you aren't happy but it isn't faulty, I'm sure they will allow it.

I'm looking at the Aldi Special Buys brochure and it states that the headphone is compatible with Xbox one, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, and PC.
Available in black/green black/blue.
So OP is correct and not misleading.

USB powered, also.

Actually, working in aldi I can confirm that it's compatible with xbox one, quote "compatible with xbox one, xbox 360, ps3, ps4 and oc"

On the website it states Compatible with Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and PC

Aldi have a 60 days no quibble return policy. As long as you keep your receipt and bring the product back with original packaging in the same condition you bought it in (barring faulty goods obviously) you should 100% be able to get a refund regardless of reason. If you do all that and the cashier says otherwise ask to speak to a manager as they're likely mistaken. That said the only time's I've seen refunds refused have been when either the customer had no receipt or the item was purchased more than 60 days ago.

Bottom line is you might as well give it a whirl while they're in stock. If they suck or don't work with Xbox Ones (which they have been advertised as compatible with) you'll be able to get your money back.

if it says usb powered then you will need to plug into laptop or usb plug or the xbox itself meaning wires

I copied the description from aldis website when I posted the deal. If it no longer states xbox one then they have changed it. Thanks for your time posting a comment on this deal, sorry if you feel misled

Going to get one. Thanks for posting.

I have been looking around and can't find any reviews on this item to see what kind of quality this product is. In fact I can't find anywhere else that even sells them to even compare the price

For an XB1 I'd rather go for these:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Official-Xbox-One-Stereo-Headset/dp/B00I41H6DQ
If you factor in the likely cost (£20) of an adapter then the official ones are not a bad price really.
I thought my trusty Turtle Beach X41 would just plug in, I was wrong and had to get an adapter to be able to use the chat function.
I found a little bit about connecting headsets to the XB1 here:
http://support.xbox.com/en-GB/xbox-one/accessories/connect-compatible-headset
The headset posted by the OP here may be compatible, however how compatible may be limited to letting you hear what is going on (I would question if the mic. will work if it is not plugged into the handset joypad).
To quote my second link above:
"You need a compatible headset and an Xbox One Stereo Headset Adaptor to use a stereo or mono chat headset with Xbox One."
If you have a new version of the Kinect (2.0) you could use that as the mic. for chatting (the old Kinect will not work with XB1 either).
Just trying to help :-)
Heat added for OP taking the time to post a great value headset.
If you are concerned if something will be 100% compatible straight out of the box, it may be best to stick to officially branded products.
I'm only commenting from my own point of view, that I had to buy an audio adapter, then a Kinect 2.0, then I even got myself a media remote - all offical and all work faultlessly.
Good find OP and thank you for posting.

Just for avoidance of doubt, here is a pic from the ALDI laflet this week, as has been mentioned previously in this thread, ALDI are great with returns, so if they do not work with Xbox 1 then there shouldn't be any problems taking them back. From experience the audio products I've bought from ALDI have all been good quality - the soundbase for the TV was fab!

Has anyone tried one of these yet, what the sound and Mic quality like.

And has anyone tried them on an Xbox one.

I've been this morning and bought one for the xbox one but although it said in brochure compatible for xbox one it doesnt state it on the box I'm now waiting for my son to get home so he can try it as I havent a clue! But' really dont think it will work

You might need to buy the stereo adaptor. About £20.

Just purchased these about 30 mins ago for my son who has an Xbox One - the Aldi ads state it is compatible, but the box does not list it and neither do the instructions, only the 360 - there seems to be a hell of a lot of cables and connections to make for any of the consoles. I for one hate trailing wires across the room - that's why we love the wireless controllers, remote controls etc. This will be going back and I will be looking for an alternative.

That said, I am a great fan of Aldi and all their products are top notch - especially the deals - have never had a problem taking anything back.

I've just read the instruction manual online and it has a strange connection set up, you get the audio from a red and white RRCA leads and the usb powers the amp and sends the Mic signal back.

DONT BUY!!! I cant get the driver to install on my PC and ive tried every option

Can anyone confirm yet if you can use this on xbox one without having to buy another adapter many thanks

Ive got one just today (18th december ) and they seem good so far the mic is good according to all my friends ive spoke to with these the speakers sound great my only slight issue is that the fabric on the ear cushioning isnt breathable so your ears get hot quick also if you've got big ears you can only were them in a few positions because of how there shaped
