I just purchased a pair of Steelseries Siberia V2 Blue Frost headphones which are powered by USB. They will not connect to my iPhone since, to my knowledge, there is no such thing as a working USB to 3.5 mm audio converter. I am using these headphones for gaming and music on the computer but can't use them for music on my phone. I have searched the internet for something that I could plug the USB cord on my headphones into so that the headphones could connect to my phones bluetooth and listen to music that way. Does a product like this exist? If I took apart an old bluetooth earpiece and found the part that connects to bluetooth in there, would I be able to use that to DIY a working bluetooth connector for the headphones? Is there any other way to connect a pair of USB headphones to iPhone, through bluetooth or not?

Unfortunately, You will not find much luck with this idea.

The headset has a USB DAC(basically a sound card) to convert the digital signal from the USB port to analog audio. The headset has NO was to connect other than the usb port.

Some of the older ones had the USB -> 3.5mm and then the headset connected to it. Those could have been used(by not using the usb sound card/dac).

1. Turn the headphones on
2. Open setting
3. Open Bluetooth
4. Turn on Bluetooth so it can search

You can try this. Unfortunately you can only listen to music on your iphone but not make any calls using your headset even if your headset has microphone since phones have TRRS phone connectors (single 3.5mm jack for both audio and microphone)
