How can I plug ordinary headphones into the controller to play? Any accessories?

Yeah. Like a dock or plug. I have a $150 set of headphones I bought for listening to music. They have the AUX/MP3 plug though.

Is there an adapter or other accessory that will allow me to plug it into the 360 controller?

Thanks for any informative responses

You could buy a composite to 3.5mm adapter and plug the headphones directly into the TV.

The port on the controller is only for voice chat, no game sounds come through that.

If you're close enough to your TV you can just plug them into a headphones jack. otherwise you'll need a 3.5mm to AV cable (and possible an extender for the cables)`

yes there is, you need an audio plug converter. I think it's 3.5mm to 2.5mm, though I'm pretty sure you can only hear voice through it.

Well, I assume you want game sound in your headphones. If you are using Component or Standard, then plug the RCA (red/white) cables into a RCA-stereo adapter. Then plug your headphones into that. If you use HDMI, I hope your TV has a headphone jack.

IF your headphones are surround, you probably want an optical cable for the sound, and then plug that into your processor.

Or you could spend $1.22 and get chat the easiest way possible.

Would only voice chat come through my headphones?

And to get in-game sound I would need to plug it into the TV?
