alright so since i just acquired an xbox yesterday from bits and pieces ( bought it on ebay rrod) i was playing online and decided that i needed a microphone headset to talk to my friends. i didnt want to blow 20$ on a xbox 360 headset or pay 2$ for a crappy one on ebay.
so first i found myself a headphone jack that fits into the 360 controller. its one from an old phone headset when they used the 2.5mm headphone jacks i think.
so next i found the pinout for the headphone jack-in
the tip is the microphone
the center is audio for the headset
and the llast one is ground
after that i soldered the microphone to the tip of the jack
then i soldered ground to the last ring
then i soldered both the speakers to the middle ring
after that i tested it and sealed it with hot glue and heat shrink tubing
upside is you dont have to spend 20$ downside is you dont have mute or volume control.
