Anyone ever try to use their 360 wired headset on a PC?

I'm sure there are some round about, more-complicated-than-necessary ways to get it working but I'm talking about just buying an adapter for the headphone jack and using it for voice chatting on PC. I'm guessing this doesn't work but curious if anyone's done it?

You can just plug your wired xbox controller into the usb and use your headset that way

Ahh, I only have a couple of wireless controllers. And I'm guessing the play and charge wire doesn't quite do the trick.

Dont think so.

Seriously though you can get a pc headset for a few dollars/pounds. Although a wired controller is worth the investment if you ever play games on your pc

I do know that you can plug it into a cordless phone and it works great. It's come in handy.

nope. Play and charge is charge only.

What you speak of works, you would need a splitter to split the mic from the earphone (I believe the tip is the mic, the barrel is the headphone but don't quote me on that) Adapters add more noise though, using it while plugged into a wired controller or a wireless + the wirelesss adapter for PC may be the better way to go.

Yep. Much better options for a much nicer headset. I can't say if I prefer USB or the 3.5 analog plugs but it's nice to have the option.

This is what you're looking for. It's an adapter that lets you plug your Xbox headset into the mic/speaker portion of a pc.

That's 3.5mm, the 360 headset is 2.5mm. so you'd need another adapter. Plus that's a little long, that's what I'm talking about with adding extra noise.

So you'd need two adapters: the thing above (or a shorter one) and a 2.5mm female to to 3.5mm male adapter.

I use my Wired Les Paul controller, works like a charm. But there's a wireless receiver for PC too:

In theory, it should work just fine.
