Use Any Headset With Xbox 360 Live

headset wiring diagram

Gamersreports have shown us how to wire up the 360 headset adapter to use any headset we want.

You basically unscrew the adapter housing, unsolder the wires from the 360 live headset, and resolder the wires from any other headset.

I recommend that you pick up a female headset (mini) plug and wire it to the adapter so you can plug in any type of headset, or easily replace one later.

Great mod, easy to do if you know how to solder. If you don't, get some help from someone who does.

All headsets have four wires, two for the mic and 2 for the speaker. The bare and the white wire are for the mic usually, and the blue and the red are for the speaker. Now, any headset you want to use should show these wires when you strip off the jack at the end. Once you figure out which is which, unscrew the Xbox360 Live headset adapter using the 2 screws on the back. You should see something similar to the diagram.
