I tried looking for some but couldn't find it. I basically have a headphone that has a microphone attached to the side of it. It has 2 wires,one of it is a audio 3.5mm and the other one is the microphone 3.5mm. Is there a USB where I can plug BOTH these wires into it? I intend to use it for my PS3

Took a few minutes, but I found one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812186035

I know that Logitech makes one too, as I have one with one of their headsets. Thats the only one I could find though.

You sure it will work? I asked in yahoo answers and they said that it is not possible since the USB and 3.5mm use different technology... hard to believe so thats why I asked on neoseeker.

Anyways, you sure it the headphones and microphone will work on my ps3?

Was searching for some cheaper alternatives, stumbled upon this: http://m.dealextreme.com/p/mini-usb-stereo-sound-card-audio-adapter-black-152555 , would this work on my PS3 if I connected my headphone+Mic to it?

Yahoo answers are full of idiots.

The adapter will take the analog signal from the microphone and headset and convert it to digital for USB. They work fine on computers because they just see it as a USB headset (not an adapter). I'm not sure if it will work on a PS3 (I dont own one), but it wouldn't hurt to try. I would imagine it would since its just an adapter and all the converting is done in the adapter and not via software.

I think it would work, but I've never heard of that site and it doesnt even list a brand.

ive ordered a few gadgets from them, some lasers etc. They dont sell branded items and their products are fairly poor in quality but they are cheap. I tried looking at ebuyer and ebay and couldnt find any below £9
