Is there any way to turn a usb headset into one that uses 3.5mm jacks.

If anyone knows a way to do this it would be a great help.

Why not just plug into line-out?

I think the author owns a headset with a USB plug at the end, such as these: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=USB+headset&x=0&y=0.  He probably wants to know how to cut off the USB and wire in a 3.5mm jack instead.
That would be a knife & soldering job I think?

Thanks, I was just curious because I really didn't want to but a new one.
The short answer is no, you can't convert a USB headset to use 3.5mm audio jacks. USB audio devices use a digital signal to transfer data to and from your computer. Because you don't have an analog audio signal, splicing in a 3.5mm jack and plugging it into a sound card would not do anything useful.

Yeah, Pretty much that's what I want to do.
