Do you go HDMI? If you do then you find the rca audio out and go from your tv to headphone amp. I will not spend the $50.00 usd for the hi-def adapter. That adapter goes toslink optical that would be best put into a D/A converter. I am happy doing it the cheep way.

Sorry to ressurect this topic, but I cannot for the life of me find a female/female plug like the one pictures - only male-to-female or female-to-male. Can someone link me to a place where I could buy one? Thanks!

A cable like that wouldn't have a volume control, however, and there's no guarantee that the XBox Line-Out would be strong enough to drive headphones. What you really need is a Headphone amp that takes RCA connections or a Receiver that has a Headphone out.

x2 on what Arainach said. You neednt get an expensive one, just some portable one will do, there are lots of options on the portable amp forum. If it doesnt have RCA, you might need a RCA to mini adapter which is very easy to find.

I was RCA to Mini to old Airhead.

I am now toslink to Maverick DAC to headphone.

I would also think that many televisions have a headphone out?

Astro Gaming Mixamp is your best bet I think...

If you want to spend less than what you did for your 360, lol.

You can also find the cable that comes with the elite very cheap on ebay.
