I love doing these mini-mods, they're short enough to maintain my attention span long enough for me to complete them, and also don't cost much. I bought a pair of $30 USB surround-sound headphones about a month ago, and so far they've been great. They sound nice, great 3D sound, and are comfortable for long periods of time. Only problem is, some games (like my beloved COD2) don't support positional audio for USB devices that don't have EAX support. Time for a mod... The plan is to cut the cable from the in-line USB soundcard and the headphones and put in 3 3.5mm jacks. Then, place opposite jacks in the USB soundcard, so I can still use them on USB for my laptop, etc. First things first, I opened it up and identified the wires. Sound tubes Large center speakers, small positional ones. Interesting design. Both sides open to see the wires The sound card Inside eight wires for six speakers So from what I see all three speakers in one side are on the same ground. I can then just split that ground and connect it to each of the 3.5mm jacks. All the other lines are well colour coated and dead simple. Question: Will I need this coil thing in my cable? Its very close to the end and I would like to remove it if its not needed, but I think its there to clean up noise on the wires, so I may need it. Thoughts? Next step: buy jacks, snip, solder. Expect an update soon!
