wait - I can speak at the Kinect instead of a mic to talk to other players?

I use Bose headphones that are not a gaming headset so don't have a mic on them. This means that I don't speak to other players. But if I don't buy gaming headphones for next gen I can just wear my Bose ones with X1 and just speak normally and the Kinect will hear me and transmit to other players and I will be able to hear them through my Bose headphones?

if you're able to type properly then why do you start other topics as if you just learned English yesterday?

Yes, although the audio quality of your voice might be questionable. The Kinect 2.0 is supposed to have much improved noise cancellation, but only time will tell.

Essentially yes. Your kinect will be the microphone, and their voice will come through the speakers , or in this case your headphones.

you can absolutely do this. you'll just need to find the correct setting, that plays their voices to your headphones/speakers.

They originally weren't going to include a headset and were telling people that they can use Kinect 2.0 for voice chat. Once they turned off the mandatory Kinect aspect they had to include the headset.
