    Excellent for HDMI use

    In the past, I have had to use a standard AV cable in conjunction with my EarForce X12 headset. When I used a HDMI cord instead, the noise from the TV was sometimes a distraction to others doing something in the same room. There are two TVs in what we call the "Family room". One TV is used for my seventh and eighth generation game consoles, the other is for cable use. Both TVs have Blu Ray players hooked up, but since I don't own a PS3, nor are there enough games for me to want a PS3, using an EarForce headset won't work for me there. I already own a Wii as well, and I'm not willing to buy any more than 2 consoles of any gaming generation. When I learned about this adapter, it was my opportunity to have high quality output from an HDMI cord while using my EarForce X12 headset so that audio directly from the TV while playing my 360 would not be a problem for anyone else in the room. It's also a very simple setup. Just plug the red and white audio plugs from a Turtle Beach headset into the adapter, then plug the adapter into the console where the AV cable would otherwise be plugged in.

    Necessary for multiple high-end headphones...

    Although I highly recommend buying headphones other than the ones that come included with the Xbox, it can be a hassle trying to connect multiple headphones to the same TV or console. This is especially true if you want to use HDMI output simultaneously, or if you want to connect one set of headphones without cutting audio to your television set for others to hear. Therefore, purchasing this accessory is almost necessary. I have seen others get away without using this accessory by making DIY modifications to the console included audio/video cable. However, if you want a more reliable alternative that's easy to set up, then I recommend purchasing this accessory.

    Overall it is an average value

    Overall the sound quality was acceptable for the price of the headset. I really was put off by the need to buy that adapter. In our modern times of using at least 720p tv's you would think they would require an adapter if you "didn't" use an HDMI cable. But really you shouldn't need to buy an adapter if you are hooking this up to an Xbox at all because it is being sold as an Xbox accessory. I just found it aggravating and it added to the expense of the headset. I would recommend this to a friend, but I would make sure they knew to shop around.

    Perfect for TV's without Audio Out Ports

    Switched my Xbox 360 to my newly renovated man cave to find that my LCD TV only had digital audio out which doesn't support the normal TB headsets. Hooked this up since I'm using HDMI out on the 360 and it works great. Another plus is that once I hooked the sound at back to my TV in the family room it was much louder as the AV out hookup for the turtle beaches draws a lot of power even when not being used so it takes away from the maximum output to the sound bar. Even if I were to switch it back I would still reccomend this so you can have full power to your sound bar!!

    Great if you need analog sound with no delay

    First, Best Buy made me rate a cable on "Comfort"... which, I suppose for a cable, it's as comfy as it's going to get. I bought RockSmith for Xbox360 to try to get my kids interested in guitar. Problem was - with HDMI digital audio, you pluck a string and the sound sorta shows up late. I use this with a sound bar (see my other review) to get analog sound, which turns the Xbox into an guitar speaker. Works flawlessly, simple installation. Not the most comfortable thing I've ever worn. Maybe I should try a Windsor knot?

    When I bought my turtle beach headset I didn't know that I needed an adapter to connect the headset to the xbox. I found a way to connect my headset to the tv in the meantime. Got tired of doing that so I bought the this adapter to do it as indicated in the headset instructions. Didn't notice any sound quality difference from connecting headset to the tv to connecting to the xbox with adapter. It does make it easier since the back of my tv is harder to get to then the back of my Xbox.

    I had gotten some Turtle Beach Headphones so I could play and hear the games without bothering my roommate. I was using a 19" LCD TV HDMI and a 3.5mm audio port, and that worked fine but I was dependent on the TV-out for audio. The moment I started getting my audio straight from the XBox the sounds became much more alive. Now I feel as if Zombies are screaming over my left shoulder... which helps me aim faster.

    Bought this for the kids to go with their wireless Turtle Beach headset after we could not get sound through headphones. From my experience and talking with Best Buy sales rep, it is REQUIRED. Only gave it 4 stars because it should have been packaged together with headsets or something written on headset box stating it is needed. Just like items that require batteries!

    This adapter was the perfect solution to hooking up my son's xBox 360 to his new Turtle Beach headphones and still use HDMI for picture quality. While you might be able to find a less expensive adapter online it might come from China and take a month. I wanted to be able to pick it up so this was the best solution for the time and money.

    I was in Best Buy with my grandson who has been wanting this product for quite some time now. I got him the headset, and he also had his eye on this product. He said they go hand and hand. I looked at the price and thought it wasn't a bad price at all. So I got. My grandson is so happy and pleased. He said the quality is good and enjoys it everyday!

    Bought some turtle beach head phones and did not know that I needed an adapter for it to work with the Xbox 360. I tried finding some cheaper aftermarket adapters but only found this so I bought it. It works as it should and as described. Just plug it into the Xbox and plug the head phone receiver into it and done. No other set up.

    I have my Xbox 360 hooked up to my desktop pc monitor. I didn't realize my monitor did not have an earphone jack or any other way to set up my wireless turtle beach headset. With the Turtle Beach - Ear Force Audio Adapter I was able to setup my wireless headset and enjoy the full gaming experience.

    Works Great. Was necessary for our setup with the XL1 headphones. Would have been nice if the headphones came with this adapter. If you use HDMI to connect XBox to tv, you either connect headphones to tv's analog audio out (which my tv doesn't have - only digital out) or you need this adapter.

    You will need to use this adapter for connecting turtle beach headsets to your Xbox 360 if you are using an HDMI connection to your TV. It works well, sets up easy. It is unfortunate you have to buy this if you have an Xbox 360 as you do not need this for the PS3.

    I bought a brand new flat screen HDMI tv after having bought my Turtle Beach head phones with my older, non HDMI television. I'm not very techno-savy, but this adapter worked perfectly and was very easy to install (minutes). Color coding for the cables made it that much easier.

    It is a necessary component to connect the Turtle Beach headset to the older model Xbox 360. In my opinion it should be included with the headset. However, it was easy to connect and works well. I took off one star because it is a bit pricey for what it is.

    Didn't realize i needed this for my turtle beach headset. It made the cord a bit heavier and overall cord length longer. But it worked so can't complain too much.

    IF YOUR TIRED OF GETTING BEHIND YOUR TV TO CONNECT YOUR TURLT BEACH HEADPHONE, THIS IS THE THING FOR YOU. EASILY CONNECTS AND IS A MUST HAVE IF YOUR TV IS NOT COMPATIBLE TO THE HEADPHONES. THE PRICE IS SOMETHING YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH IF YOU NEED IT.

    My composite cable for my X360 died so i needed a new way to attach my cables with an HDMI cable. This was it. No discernable change in sound quality. Full disclosure: I'm not an aidiophile.
