Thinking about doing this so i can use my Turtle Beach X41's now and not have to buy an adaptor...

Xandrel, post: 7649366, member: 602612 wrote:Hi There,
Figured as my first post in the community I would share my 'fix' for the new chat connector. I have a Turtle Beach X12 headset that I use for my online gaming. I was soooooo happy to see that the new XBOX One would not 'support' the old style connectors and that a 3rd party would have to develop an adapter. I didn't want to wait around for this adapter, nor do I want to pay for one either, so I scavenged around the house and found all the necessary parts to do it. Take a look.

Things you will need:
T3 size screw driver (I have a nice hobby kit for electronics that contains all these bits)
1 x 2.5mm jack (ripped mine out of an old cellphone)
Soldering Iron and solder
A sharp blade of sorts
Hot glue gun
Some small gauge wire (I used 30AWG)

Step 1
Rip that sucker open (and turn the soldering iron on). At first glance, you will notice that there are no visible screws (same with the controller for that fact). The back cover with the clip that holds the adapter onto the controller is held in with retention clips. Grip firmly, putting most of your pressure at the base, and pull. It should just snap off.


Step 2
With the back cover off, you can now see 5 screws (2 silver, 3 black). Remove those (T3 driver right here).


Step 3
Now, SLOWLY, separate the plastic covers. On my headset, they separated quite easily, but I can see some people having issues (maybe not). What I mean by issues is that the cable coming from the mic may pull away from the solder points on the board. Dont want that to happen as it can screw up your traces. You will expose the board and the wires that connect the headset to the board.


Step 4
Use your soldering iron to remove the 4 wires. Now, do whatever you want with the mic. I will add a male 2.5mm connector so I can still use it should the need arise. You can see that M$ was kind enough to have the pinout labeled for us. Ground, Mic, and either of the other 2 pins is what you want.


Step 5
Now place your female plug that you selected for the project. Remember, 2.5mm. I selected mine from a cellphone I had laying around the house (Sanyo something or other, flip). Its very small and will fit inside the casing very nicely. Once I decided on how to place it, I put a generous amount of hot glue on the board and set the plug in place.

I got a little carried away here and forgot to take pictures of parts of the process, but it is pretty self explanatory. Ensure you know which pins are which. I used a multimeter to check the continuity of each solder point. I used this image as my reference.

This is what it looked like when completed. Soldering wasn't the greatest work that I have done, but it worked. I finished it off with a bunch of hot glue to ensure that it wouldn't move once it was all put together.


Step 6
I had to chip away at the plastic piece that covered it all in order for it all fit properly. Do that if you need to (remember that this all depends on which connector you use inside). Screw the plastic cover back on and try to attach the finished cover back on (you may have to do some cutting or shaving to make it fit, I did).


Overall I am very pleased with how this worked out. It looks stock. Now I can use my Turtle Beaches during my sessions of Ghost. Love it. This goes without saying, you can use your old 360 mic or any mic with a 2.5mm connector. Enjoy.

Sony did it too.

They're just using some clever marketing to cover up the fact that, business wise, MS and Sony are at each other's necks. Although I'm sure the CEO of Sony and MS (I don't know why they are anymore) are actually quite nice to each other, ala Jobs and Gates.

Nintendo seem hell-bent on creating an off-the-wall gimmick. Make a normal solid console, and they may be able to stop their company from sinking.

The Wii sold way more units than the PS3 and 360. Wii Sports is also by far the best selling game ever.

Nintendo don't have the resources to compete with Sony and Playstation. They've found a good niche.

The Wii U has only hit 5% of its predicted sales. The Wii was good, but it's passed it's time. The novelty has worn off, and with the improvements to the PS Eye & Kinect, its time really is limited.

I saw that, that is BRUTAL.

All I've seen is ridiculously great reviews from the teaser trailer.

I swear I've been waiting for a game like this since I was a weeee lad! I've always loved Star Wars, Star Trek, and the story of Halo, where human exploration in exo-solar systems is possible.

I'm such a geek when it comes to astronomy and other things of that nature.

That looks awesome!! Yes XB1 version please! Sort of reminds me a little of Freespace, except it has an open world feel to it.

I do not know if it was planned, but, they must be doing something good with these new consoles.

I figured it was about time that bought my One, but, I could not find a single One in any of the stores I went to in my little remote corner of the world. No PS4's either.
