mic converter for 360 controller
« on: 08:56 PM - 08/18/12 »
Does anyone know a reliable 2.5mm male jack to 3.5mm female converter for the mic plug on the 360 controller? I'd like to plug my zalman mic into it.

I just recently bought a DVI to HDMI converter for playing on my PC monitor along with

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0009JFF7A/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&smid=A119K31BOSN2QF

so I can plug my headphones into it for sound.

I was thinking of getting this,
http://www.amazon.com/2-5mm-3-5mm-Female-Stereo-Adapter/dp/B001078FV8/ref=cm_srch_res_rtr_6

But so many people complain saying it doesn't work, and most of them say it doesn't work with zalman too so -.-

The two you linked on amazon.com have reviews stating it didn't work with microphones on 360 controller. However, I did find some 360 adapters on ebay,

 http://www.ebay.com/itm/White-3-5mm-Jack-Headset-Converter-Adapter-2-5mm-Plug-Xbox-360-/380388142746?_trksid=p5197.m1992&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D14%26meid%3D1448905671224429584%26pid%3D100015%26prg%3D1006%26rk%3D1%26#ht_1373wt_1397

I'm guessing I will still need the RCA adapters though for sound in my headphones, I'll just be able to plug my mic into the controller now and it'll work hopefully.
