Confirmed: Xbox One Will Have Adapter for Current Headsets
It’s no secret Microsoft has had its bad share of publicity with the Xbox One, from flip-flopping policies, to the pricing of the system. One of the more minor complaints against the Xbox One was that it would not be compatible with current Xbox 360 headsets.
However, Albert Penello, the lead planner for the Xbox One, confirmed on Twitter that the Xbox One will have an adapter for current Xbox 360 headsets.
@TheMVPlaya Yes. We will have an adapter that allows current gaming headsets to work.

A price for the adapter has yet to be announced.
