Not an Official MS product – Optical Audio Adapter for Xbox 360 (15cm-Length) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
It seems to work properly. It does feed sound to my Turtle Beach headset.
Cons:
This adapter looks exactly like the one made by MS. However, it does not have the stamp of quality control by MS. It could be an issue. My console reboots everytime I plug it in. Also, it is a snug fit at the back with the HDMI cable there. The cable doesn't always go all the way in, which was an issue at beggining. I would have liked to have known that it is not an "official" MS product but a "knockoff" with no origin.
Other:
Bottomline:
Perfect product if you do not care about its make or potential quality. If you prefer an MS dongle with the seal from MS to avoid any problems, forego this one. The price is cheap but other still quite cheap ones can be found online if it is important to you. Otherwise, it is as described. And it is a good deal.
