The Xbox One Wireless Controller 1697 was released in 2015 and replaced the 1537 controller. The Model 1697 controller includes an integrated 3.5mm headset jack, which allows the user to use most 3rd party headsets without an adapter. This controller has since been replaced by the Model 1708 controller.

No that is not how MS makes extra money from you. Have you heard of "warranty"?

they always seem to start that wander around 4-mos or so "surprise" warranty is 3mos ,btw have you heard of "levity"or do you owe MS something?b'cuz I sure don't,but thanx for nothing tom


Interesting. Xbox One controllers are warranted for 1 year here. If you do want to fix it you have to replace the joystick module, which should be available on Alibaba or somewhere. Disassembly and soldering required.


Well...u can take the controller apart, super clean the analong bases...rubbing alchohol works....clean teh crap out of it...fixed mine.....
