    My 20 inch samsung monitor has the vga ports. But no sound slots. Can i nevertheless use and chat through my turtle seashore x11’s into the xbox even though i perform on my monitor?

  • Lizzie Galatioto

    I have the audio functioning on my x31heaset for the computer, now I just need to have to get the microphone working. I do not have a wired xbox controller, so that technique does not work, nor do I have a usb receiver, nor do I want to spend for those. The 2.5mm to 3.5mm cord they have the turtle beach site is not in stock. I could not find a area to purchase that cord from either. Any ideas?

    I’m looking for a message board to answer a question that’s not getting an answer here, about FM transmitters for sending PC audio out to FM radios throughout the house.

    Any good audio tech message boards?

  • DuckieM10

    I’m looking to go to college for audio recording technology but I can’t find any good schools that offer a degree for it. I really want to become an audio engineer and work in recording studios. Can anyone help me find some good colleges that offer that or give me some references to some places where I can find some schools?

  • Agent 47

    I’m from Australia and the the Turtle Beach website does not do international posts.
