Because this headset was built for the Xbox, I figured that the installation would be very easy...and it was. In fact, I can't really explain it any better than this picture provided by Turtle Beach.
You plug the transmitter into your wall outlet, then plug the optical cable into the transmitter and your Xbox. One major downside of this is that the digital input on the Xbox is located on the component cable. This means you will not be able to use an HDMI cable while using these headphones. This, however, has nothing to do with Turtle Beach. Rather, it is a function of Microsoft's poor slot placement. As for using the chat feature, you will need to plug the headset into your Xbox controller.
The only thing you may need to configure is if you are using an HDMI cable. The component cable blocks the slot. This is not too much of a downside, but stops you from using a HDMI cable at the same time as the headset; engineering oversight perhaps?
