Xbox 360 Audio Adapter





The Razer Xbox 360 audio adapter is a nifty little gadget that connects optical and analog gaming headsets like the Razer Chimaera series to the Xbox 360 console. This is especially useful for gamers with TVs or original Xbox 360 consoles without a dedicated optical audio out port. The adapter also helps free up space to the HDMI port on the Xbox 360 so gamers get the full gaming audio experience and best picture quality as intended.




  • Optical and RCA outputs for use with compatible Xbox 360 gaming headsets
  • Frees up space for HDMI cable to connect to the Xbox 360 console simultaneously
  • Gold-plated connectors
    *Compatible with all generations of Xbox 360 systems.




What is Surround Sound?

Surround Sound describes the method of channelling sound that envelops the user in a 360 degree arc, positioning sound sources accurately in relation to the user. This is especially useful in multiplayer first person shooters where proper sound placement can help you identify friends, foes and situations within the environment. Audio devices produce two types of surround sound: Discrete or virtual.


Using multiple speakers in a system or multiple audio drivers in each ear cup of the headset, positioned at different angles, discrete surround sound lets gamers hear audio in realistic 3-dimensions as they would in real life.

Discrete surround sound makes for immersive gameplay as it accurately represents how your character perceives the audio of the game world.

Virtual surround sound can be found primarily in headphones that use only two drivers and complex audio processing algorithms to simulate the effect of having multiple audio drivers.

These headsets utilize internal or external amps and software engines to divide surround sound audio into distinct, separate segments, effectively reproducing a surround sound spectrum with just 2 drivers.
