nubbuka posted a topic in Headphones & SpeakersHello! I am about to purchase a Steelseries H Wireless Headset but I noticed I do not have a Optical connection on my PC nor my sound card. The Headset allows Analog and Optical and a USB connection for the microphone as I've read. Analog as I've searched around the web reduces quality and doesn't allow 7.1 surround to work. My sound card supports 5.1/7.1 surround but has 5 different colored connections at the back and a "screen DVI" looking connection as well. My question is: Can I connection the optical cable from the headset to my sound card or any 3.5mm jack on my PC with a adapter that doesn't require a power source for the same quality. Will it work?

Thank you in advance and have a nice day!
