View Full Version : Using Headphones With Xbox 360?

I have one of the new 250GB black xbox systems, and I want to hook it up to a smaller Tv when Mrs Gizmo wants to watch something on the main living room Tv. But the smaller Tv doesn't have a headphone socket, and neither does the Xbox. So is there a way of getting around this problem, to allow me to use headphones? I just need the sound that normally comes through the cinema system to come through a set of headphones, but there seems to be no obvious solution to this problem.

This is not for multiplayer online gaming, I don't need to talk to anyone, It's just me myself and I.

I think you can buy a usb headphone. that could possibly link up to the xbox or a wireless? blootooth? thingy maybe?

I got a set of gaming headphones up at tesco and they can hook up between the audio cables and the tv. or you can just plug them in any tv headphone socket as the adapter separates off.

You will have to get a cable like this (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Turtle-Beach-X11-PX21-3-5mm-RCA-Stereo-Splitter-/220895643307?pt=UK_VideoGames_VideoGameAccessories _VideoGameAccessories_JN&hash=item336e6806ab) and then hook the red and white wires of the Xbox into that, then you can plug in the headphones :)

i have to admit, they do look awsome and cheap compared to the 120 ones i was looking at and they were only 1.5 surround. i think i need to get something like that after ived saved up a bit.
