Getting 7.1 out of my xbox one?

How do I convert my xbox one optical out put into the 7.1 surround sound 3.5mm jacks from my razor tiamat ( the front, rear, centre and sides )

P.s I know how to get the mic to work :)

  1. It's not exactly my field, but you would need another device in the middle IMO...

    Some console-oriented 5.1/7.1 headsets come inclued with what is essentially an external audio card, featuring a S/PDIF Input, 5.1/7.1 audio jacks output and, in some cases, on-board channel volume controls. A fine example of this would be the Tritton 720+/PRO+; I think you'll need something similar.

    I cant seem to find a headset receier that has the 7.1 out puts needed, I mean like the front, back, central/subwoofer and sides.

    Well, theoretically, any USB 7.1 sound card would work. It just needs to be USB powered, have a S/PDIF input and a 7.1 channels 3.5mm jacks output. The main issue would be if it's compatible or not, as if it uses USB for anything else than just power it probably requires additional software, a thing you can't install on a PS4/XBO.

    That's also probably one of the main reasons behind the included external audio cards with some headsets, other than just increasing cost because it's a branded USB audio card :D
    It's proven to be compatible and (usually) harassment-free when plugging in everything.
