Ever been playing Xbox Live with a few friends and gotten frustrated over the quality of voice being broadcast via the Xbox Headset? Or have to purchase a whole new headset ($50+) because your wires are giving out?
Have a perfectly good headset you use for PC gaming but that doesn't quite fit into your Xbox Controller?
Heres an EASY STEP-BY-STEP Instructable that will show you how you can spend under $20 (in parts) to make that nice PC gaming headset compatible with your Xbox 360 controller.
Step 1: Gather Tools
First, you'll want to make sure that you have a few handy items to complete this project. Everything we're using can be picked up at your local Radio Shack or similar Electronics parts store. You'll need: solder, a soldering iron, wire cutters, a blade of some sort, and wire strippers (if you're not able to use a blade).
Note: you'll also need a very small piece of wire you can solder on as a bridge. But more on that in a later step.
You're also going to want a safe place to solder and you may like to use gloves if you're skin is sensitive to cutting or burning...
