In the past, I've played guitar in RB3/GHWT and sung at the same time using a mic stand and the GHWT mic. This works fine with the stock mic, because the guitar's strum and buttons are fairly quiet. However, I like playing drums more, but they don't play nicely with the mic because of their being considerably louder... Thus, I was wondering if it would be possible to use a gaming headset instead of the speakers and stock mic; listening through the headphones and singing through the mic. Could this work? Has anyone tried it? I was considering using a standard USB headset, but they use the same plug for mic and audio out, which wouldn't work. Thus, I'm thinking about using a standard 3.5mm headset with separate stereo plugs for mic and headphones, with the mic plug attached to my 360 via a 3.5mm -> USB converter of sorts (see below). Thoughts?
Something like these:
TL;DR: Can I use a gaming headset's mic for vocals in Rock Band 3 (Xbox 360)?
