For example, if I use my casual stereo headphones that I use for other things like my 3DS, and the Kinect for a mic, would that be a viable setup? Would I be able to hear my game through the headphones, and at the same time be heard by others through the Kinect?

Technically that will work, but you're not going to get the best sound quality from it. I tested a pair of iPod earbuds and whilst passable, it's not exactly a great experience.

i don't know about everyone else, i generally hate people that use the kinect as a mic. I know some people might have no other option(even though a mic comes with the system), but i don't care to hear every little sound in your entire home.

Yeah, I know. At first I thought using the Kinect like that was gonna be awesome, but then I started thinking about all the other noises it's going to pick up. That's an inconvenience to everyone.
