Any standard USB headset will work with the PS3 for chat audio only. You won't get any game audio in the Apple earphones if they are only connected to the USB port. As those earphones go in both ears, you won't be able to hear the game audio very well; which will be disadvantageous in a game like Black Ops 2. That is why earbuds are generally not used with the PS3.
Apple headphones with mic. Connector Type 1 x headset ( mini-phone 3.5 mm 4-pole )
4 pole 3.5mm headset connection won't work with 3.5 mm to USB converters.
With out another converter first.
You then plug the 3.5mm into the 3.5mm to USB..
Thank you for you help. I found some stuff on eBay since they are cheap.
Would these work?
And then my apple earphones of course.
I'm only looking for chat audio only. I just use speakers for game sound. Sorry for not clarifying that on my original post.
And I don't think wearing apple earphones would block out much sound, if any, from the game on my speakers. Not like apple earphones are noise cancelling or anything.
So I ended up getting this usb sound card...
I plugged my apple earphones into the micropone input of this adapter and oddly, it picked up sound when I talked into the EAR PIECE...NOT THE MICROPHONE. That's kind of weird since I figured the ear piece is made for sound to come out of it, not for sound to go in it.
Anyway, that didn't work.
Still no answer to this yet.
GraphiteGB, seems like you know, but I just don't understand what you are talking about. Can you provide links to the pictured items so I know where to buy them?....or just say more about the pictures you listed?
