I modded a mic into my audio technica headphones so i could use them for pc/console gaming, i used mogami 2 conductor wire and a single 3.5mm female termination installed into the open area of the inside of the can and sleeved the wires together using techflex carbon sleeving. I used two gold plated 3.5mm male stereo terminations for the mic and headphones. i use an e5 headphone amp from fiio for my console gaming thats also pictured in the album. Let me know what you guys think
items
-flexable mic from amazon   http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00284VD02/ref=oss_product  (or rip a boom mic out of a cheap headset, i have done both)

- mogami 2 conductor wire
- 3.5mm (1/8in) female jack (stereo in this case)
- 2x  3.5mm gold plated Male terminations (stereo)
- techflex carbon sleeving
- and a couple pieces of heat shrink from ebay.
total cost was approx: 28$ for mine but it can be done much cheaper.
I did a bose headset with the wire from a zalman clip on mic and used the boom mic from an old xbox headset i just wired a 3.5 mm male termination to. that total mod was only 6$ because all i bought were the terminations.

absolutely, i also have a windows mobile cell phone that charges through the 360's usb. I have ordered the turtle beach dss 7.1 dolby headphone processor to the set up, it should arrive monday. I found a good deal on one and it was far cheaper than the astro mixamp that some of my friends have, it does have optical audio input and the same dolby headphone features as the mix amp.

Would love to hear an update on how things are going with the DSS and mic mod. I orded a set of JV HA-RX700 and am doing the external mic mod and hope to pick up a Ear Force DSS in the near future.
