Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter

First of all, THIS THING IS ONE BIG PEACE OF SHI*. Sorry but... I have some reasons to say this. I had a greatly working PX5 headset with a 2.5mm audio jack for my Xbox360 controller. When the XboxOne came out I bought this adapter and everything worked fine. Soon I noticed that the 3.5mm to 2.5mm audio cable is made by people who are not playing with it at all. It is one long jack, the flatcable is bend 90° while playing. One day I couldnt hear anyone and yes... the cable was broken at the 90°. Thanks Microsoft... Do you want me to buy another fuc*ing 20€ Adapter for a little piece of shi* cable which is breaking again soon??? m(
