PULSE Elite Headset & Xbox 360

    Can I use the PULSE Elite headset for voice chat on the Xbox 360? I know it connects to the PlayStation via USB, and can connect to other devices by linking a 3.5 mm cable to the USB dongle. Is the dongle directly compatible with the Xbox? If not, is there another way to connect it in such a way that will allow voice chatting with the built-in microphone while also getting game and chat audio through the headphones?


    Some testing so far indicates that the dongle is not at all Xbox-compatible. It can use the Xbox for power, but that's it - won't even output sound to the headphones without any other attachment. I've successfully tested the PULSE Elite as a wired headset for my phone, so it may just be a matter of getting an adapter for the standard 3.5 mm plug to go to the 2.5mm jack on the controller.


    Further research seems to indicate that if I do manage to get it working through the controller, it will only be handling voice chat audio - no game audio output there. That would be a fair buzz-kill, if it can't be worked around.

  • I recently picked up a cheap-o Xbox 360 wired headset (one that plugs into the wireless XBox 360 controller I use). I'm not an Xbox Live Gold member, and so I don't need chat features or anything - mostly what I'm looking for is to be able to hear the game's audio with the volume on my TV turned down. However, the headset doesn't seem to emit any of the game sounds. So far I've only tried... game audio to the controller? Or am I crazy to think that I'll be able to hear game audio through a headset connected to my XBox 360 wireless controller? Any help or advice appreciated!

  • that some (all?) Turtle Beach models can use the RCA audio output with an adapter like this and presumably they work.

  • I recently bought an "Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows". It came with a little USB dongle for my computer to pick up the wireless signal and some driver software. It works like a charm.

Here's my question: should I buy more "Wireless Controllers for Windows", which are a little more expensive than just regular Xbox 360 Wireless Controllers. or now that I have the driver software and the USB dongle, can I just buy regular Xbox 360 Wireless Controllers?

Is there any way I can set output voice to my headset and leave ingame audio to my main speakers?

My LCD display does not have built in speakers, so I need to connect the Xbox to a subwoofer. The problem is that when I connect the HDMI converter to the console, the audio cable output jack is covered by the converter. How can I use both HDMI & audio out at the same time?
