Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"Why I need this adapter in the first place seems weird, but you cannot output analog audio when using the HDMI on the Xbox and it is needed for the wireless headset we purchased."
_
"I was a bit worried that my adapter was faulty when my transmitter wouldn't detect it, but it turns out that I just had to push the adapter in a little deeper into the AV port."
_
"I was a bit worried that the adapter wouldn't work after reading some of the reviews, but mine works flawlessly."
_
"No console reset problems and the adapter fits perfectly on the slim console with no cracking open or soldering."
_
"If you use the provided Microsoft adapter, it's too fat and you won't be able to plug both in."
_
"The audio adapter for the Turtle Beach Headset fixed the problem of not being able to hear the game audio."
_
"Yes, likely obvious for an XBOX owner to know that, but I ordered the adapter Turtle Beach recommended without checking the back of the XBOX."
_
"This audio adapter is the best i bought for a couple bucks, and i recommend it for anyone in need of this."
_
"RCA cables that come from headset run to this adapter which plugs into the 360 as well."
_
"The only problem I have had is my Sony 52V5100 tv likes to reset itself once every few hours or so when using an HDMI source (Sony, it would be nice to have a firmware update to fix that your last update started) and with adapter in place the 360 will reset itself as well."
_
"So I found this item(the cheapest optical audio adapter on amazon) and it works great for me."
