    I have the Razer Megalodon gaming headset (which are absolutely brilliant) which are USB. I was wondering, if it's at all possible for a converter/adapter that goes from USB to a 3.5 audio jack so I can blug these bad boys into my ipod touch.

    I've been searching online for one, but can't find one.

    Can you guys help me out. Thanks in advance.

    I've seen plenty of adapters that can make standard 3.5mm connections from USB, but not the opposite. Maybe getting one of the standard adapters and a female to female USB coupler could work, but my guess is it won't. The sound card built into it most likely requires power!

    Such adapter would need it's own power to suource for usb before even thinking about converting signals.

    The sound card would need power, drivers, etc. which aren't currently possible.

    wow that's a pretty sweet headset, I think i found the replacement for my old tritton AX51.

    I looked on their site trying to see if that control pod had a line in or w/e but I didn't see one.

    Their Moray Earphones look pretty sweet for music tho... but they're $40
