I really don't like using headsets and I have really nice IEMs (in-ear microphones) that most likely sound better than most of the sub $150 headsets available.
I tried connecting the original headset that came with the XBOX to the controller and putting the headset on my collar to use the mic while using my IEMs, but the problem I ran into is that when I plug in the original mic while using my IEMs, all the voice communication will cut out and go to the XBOX headset instead of my IEMs.
My setup for my IEMs is: The Trapezoid shaped plug with RCA connectors to a 3.5mm connection that I connect to my IEMs.
What I'd like to do is buy this mic: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00029MTMQ/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER
get a 3.5mm to 2.5mm adapter here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002ZPFAS/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&m=A2XNAOBSW0CZDL
and connect that to my controller so that I can get all sound through my IEMs and still communicate using the separate mic.
Is this possible?
