Running HDMI, Will Audio....

#1 Posted by Twiggy199 (498 posts) -

Still come from the RCA/Phonos if i plug a set of headphones into a '3.5mm Jack Socket to RCA/Phonos and plug into my TV. The reason being i've just bought a pair of headphones and wondered if it will work with my Xbox's audio even if its HDMI?

let me put it like this     
 
Headphones(3.5mm Jack)-------------->3.5mm  socket to RCA------------->TV 
Xbox----------->HDMI------------>TV 
 
Will audio come from the former if the bottom exists?.

will sound quality be lowered through doing this?

Not sure about that, but I don't notice too much of a difference when I'm using headphones through my TV.

Edit: You could also look into getting one of theseas they're pretty cheap now.
