Mod: use M$ Wireless transmitter on Mixamp
« on: 07:05 AM - 03/29/11 »
hey guys,
this is a mod to use the M$ wireless headset transmitter on the mixamp with the xim3

the mod has the following advantages:
-no robot voice because it's not connected to the xim3 :)
-no aim-moving on the xim3 if anyone speaks loud into the mic
-no headset-cable nedded to the controller on the xim3.
-you have a mic on / off button and can use it with any headset which is pluged into the mixamp.
-no batteries need to power the wireless headset
- you speak and hear the voices in your Ad700 (or whatever headset you have connectet to your mixamp)


without the mod:
headset --> cable --> mixamp --> cable --> controller --> cable --> xim3 ---> cable --> xbox


with mod:
headset --> cable --> mixamp -->wirelesstransmitter --> xbox
:)


the mod is much easy,
all you need is a microsoft wireless headset
and a cable from the microsoft wired headset (or any other 4-pin cable with a 2.5mm jack)

if it's done it must look like this picture
the 2,5mm jack goes to the mixamp and the usb goes to any usb-port to power it


you don't have to speak in the wirelessheadset, you speak an hear the voices normal in your headset which you have connected to your mixamp.

now lets start the mod

open the wireless headset
there are two screws on the right and left of the bracket
how it looks open you can see here.

first take the charging cable (from the wireless headset) and cut off the connector.
you see a black and a red cable (black=ground and red= +)



now we goes back to the wireless headset

on the battery pack you see a yellow and a blue cable (blue=ground and yellow= +)
Remove the battery and solder the usb cable on these two cables from the pcb
(black to blue) and (red to yellow)

remove the speaker from the wireless headset.
you see a red and a black cable (red= + and blach= ground)

remove the mic cable like in the picture
you see ab black and a white cable (black= ground and white= +)

now we open the mic on/off switcher from our wired xbox-headset



if its open, solder all cables from the wireless-headset pcb to this pcb like in the pictures





now it's done.
test it, isolating it, (if you want fix the soldered joints with hot glue)
assemble it and have fun ;)

hope you can understand this TuT, my english is not the best...
google translator ftw^^

What is with you Germans and modding everything? I never knew that you guys were such huge modders.

Should I now have a stereo-type that you guys can mod anything?

Was Macgyver German?

Nice job on the mod!  :D

but whats the purpose if this mod?

you want to use the wireless headset as a mic only right?
rest plays through the headphones

why not using a wired mic with cable-clip then?
you can easily clip them onto your ad700 cable and their quality is more than acceptable for the xbl-standards

Odin this solves the XIM mic problem and you are not connecting the Mixamp to the controller anymore. Itís a wireless mixamp to xbox connection. You still speak through your headset through the mixamp.

Before:  headset ->mixamp -> controller -> Xbox
Now: headset  ->mixamp -> wireless headset -> Xbox

You use the wireless headset as bridge that is all.

I am so happy this works, I hated this stupid cord from the mixamp to the controller, this is so fuucking awesome!

no i don't use the mic from the wireless.. and i don't use the speaker from the wireless..
i use only the transmitter ;)

i use the mic from my ad700 and the speaker from the ad700 to chat.

i use this mod becaus i don't like the headset cable on my controller..
and i don't like the aim-move bug from the xim3 ;)
this mod fixes the bug ;)
and i want to have a mic on/off switcher on mit maxamp. with this mod i have one ;)

the biggest reason was the aim-move bug.
if you connect any headset to your controller on the xim3 you have these bug.
if anyone speak loud in the chat your aiming move ingame,
because the xim3 response to the chat-signals.

neat idea, but does it degrade the quality like the normal wireless mic does.

jasonator used to use one on his xim1 and it was fecking nasty, was hard to make out anything of what he was saying at times.

But if this gets round the aim bug I all for it.

And yes I get that your not useing the wireless mic etc, I just wondering if the transmiter degades it at all.

Yeah the wireless mic itself is a design flaw, bad mic, and not mouth near. The wireless controller with a headset atteched has no bad sound has it? Not worse than a wired controller with headset. Did not test yet but should be OK.

you don't need to open the box.
you can take the end from the cable and use this.
i have only open the box to make the photos, so i can better explain which cable comes to which cable ;)
in the first picture you can see i self connected the transmitter to the end of the  wired-headset-cable and not the box :)
