Headphones?

3 replies 61 views Edited Jan 23, 2012

I got a pair of really nice headphones for christmas but I need help figuring out how to get them to work. They have a mic on them so they have two jacks on them. Are there any kind of cables that convert jacks like this to usb? My ps3 slim only has usb jacks so are there any cables like this?

There are adapters available to convert a 3.5mm plug into a USB, but the PS3 may not recongize the headset.

As long as the adapter supports the USB Audio Device protocol, the headset will work with the PS3. The headset that you received is designed for PCs, not consoles. Even some laptops don't have a mini-plug mic jack anymore. A USB headset will work with PCs and high-definition consoles, and would have made more sense to buy today in most cases.
