    hey, just wondering if id ever be able to use this on my PC??

    ive thought about gettin or makin a small adapter to convert the 2.5mm stereo jack to a 3.5mm stereo jack but still dont think that would work.

    as far as i know normal PC mic's use 2 stereo jacks, one for the voice and one for the earphones. so im assuming the 360 one sends the voice down one channel of the stereo jack, and the the (single) earphone down the other channel of the stereo jack.

    do ya think if i made an adapter (1 stereo jack in, 2 stereo jacks out, bit like a spliter, except it just splits the channels of the original input) it'd work on my PC??

    yeah you'd need a splitter as you describe. Not worth the effort imho as headsets for pc's are so cheap.

    If you're not bothered about using it on the 360 anymore then just lop the end off, split the wires and stick some new jacks on.
