HELP: PC Headset on PS3, Monitor Setup Tags: Console Gaming Playstation Monitors Headsets Video Games Last response: December 25, 2010 5:13 AM in Video Games Share insomnia9669 December 18, 2010 8:48:47 PM I recently got a PS3 and am wondering if this is possible. I play on my computer monitor through HDMI, there are no component cables. I have a SteelSeries Siberia Headset that uses 3.5mm jacks (1 for the mic, 1 for the headset). Is it possible to plug these into my PS3 somehow with an adapter like.. 3.5mm to USB? and get ingame sounds and be able to communicate? Thanks in advance, I would really appreciate a solution to this.

I'm not sure it will work with a PS3 though. they also make 3.5mm to bluetooth adapters. As I said, I don't know of anyone using them with a PS3 so I'm not sure if it will work with it. | Report abuse insomnia9669 December 20, 2010 7:41:59 PM Can i go about doing this? 1.RCA (female) to 3.5mm http://www.amazon.com/Cables-TG--3-5Mm-StereMale-Female... 2.Then connect the end of that to a headphone amplifier like.. http://www.amazon.com/FiiO-E5-Fiio-headphone-Amplifier/... 3.Then plug the other end of the Headphone Amplifier to my Headphones Questions..

It is pricey but will do what you want. http://www.astrogaming.com/products/15/MixAmp/ I think the way you are trying will not have game audio. Hard to tell without actually trying it. | Report abuse insomnia9669 December 25, 2010 5:13:18 AM Thanks for the reply, damn that is quite pricey Will this work the same? http://www.amazon.com/Force-Channel-Dolby-Surround-Proc... | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Video Games>HELP: PC Headset on PS3, Monitor Setup> Related ressources: ForumPS3 setup help .
