PC heatset into Xbox 360 controller?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I bought a new headset from Newegg and it should be here on Friday. It comes with a $5 Newegg giftcard which I dont really need.
So I was wondering if there is any adapter so I can plug it into a wired Xbox 360 controller and be able to use the mic as well as hear the game sound through it when I watch movies, play GTA4, BF3, ect on my PC.

Headset: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826265064&Tpk=plantronics%20367
Xbox 360 controller: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16874103205

I saw this on newegg. If the plugs were to fit, would this work?

I looked into this a while back,

I ended up using this, http://shop.steelseries.com/en/accessories/steelseries-xbox-360-headset-connector.html

Basically what you are trying to achieve is to plug the mic part (red end) into the controller and the audio end (green) into your tv/monitor.
Then you set chat audio to play through your tv speakers so you can hear chat and game audio in your headset while the mic is plugged into the controller to allow for talking.

EDIT: Just re-read your original post and it seems I am a retard. You mean you want to use them just on a pc ? I thought you wanted to use them with an xbox. Im not exactly sure what your question is but you wouldn't need any adapter you would simply plug them into your soundcard.

I use my controller for PC games like GTA4 but I talk to my friends on Games for Windows Live. I was looking for something so I can plug the green and pink plug into the controller.

I like to sit on my couch while I play pc games so it would be nice if I didnt have to plug them into the I/O panel on my PC.


Would this be possible? If so, where can I buy the adapter for this to work.

I made a picture to show you what I want. An adapter to make this work so I dont have a cluster of wires.
