The Xbox Live Headset Amp was designed by me, nmcclana. I've always had difficulty hearing my friends on Xbox Live (maybe I'm deaf? Or maybe it's the crappy compression), so I made this project.
You can get the kit from Gadget Gangster. But, if you'd like to gather the parts yourself, you'll need the following.
- Resistor - 3.3k and a 10k Potentiometer
- A 2.5mm and 3.5mm Audio Jack
- Gadget Gangster project board (Boss Board)
- LM386 DIP
- 3xAA battery pack
- 220 uF cap
- hookup wire
Step 1: Wiring
Step 2: Jumpers & Resistor
Step 3: Connectors
The potentiometer controls the volume. it goes at C22 - C24 - G23
Step 4: Finish Up
You're all done! To use, flip the switch on the battery box, connect your headset to the 2.5 mm jack, and your controller to the 3.5mm jack. You'll need a 2.5mm dubbing cable, or use regular 3.5mm dubbing cable and a cell phone headset adapter.
Enjoy, and let me know how it goes! You can comment or order the kit on Gadget Gangster
