sorry if this has been asked before, but couldn't find this specifically in search. i just got a ps3 and want to play car games like gt5, etc. against friends. up until now, i was an xbox user who used the xbox mic for voice chatting during games. i have a dedicated theater setup so i want all my sound coming from the 7.1 speakers. i only want to use a headset i already have (sennheiser pc 230 with built-in boom mic) to chat. i don't want any surround/game sounds to come out of the headset. so how do i do this exactly? i can go wired and i already have a usb to l/r audio converter from a corsair headset lying around if thats whats needed.
Not sure I follow exactly what you're looking for, but the easiest 'chat only' piece would be a bluetooth headset like what you use for a cellphone. Either the in-ear style, or I guess you can find a bigger type like the XBox communicator.
