there is another way to have the astros hooked up to the pc and xbox at the same time too. The astros mixamp has the chain link section. All you do is remove that red part and you have 2 extra 3.5mm plugs for 3.5mm cables. I can run one of those to my mic input on my pc and what I am saying will stream to my xbox and pc mic input.
