I received a pair of astro headphones for christmas today and for the life of me can't figure outgrow to use the optical portobello the back of my 360 slim. Theres a cover over it that I do t know snaps off or if I just push the cord in and it'll punch through or not. This may be a dumb thing to ask, but I really don't want to break anything.

Just Insert the plug in. The plastic flap is a small door to cover the beam.

Optical cables usually have caps on them to protect the ends, so you may have to take it off, then just pop that motherfucker in. Also, headphones with optical? Motherfucker what?

E: I just looked them up, holy fuck those are some overpriced fucking headphones.

@Jadeskye tbh for £220 I'd expect better than pretty good. You can get some really good 7.1 sennheisers for that, probably.

@AlexW00d: surround sound headphones are all pretty bad. But i agree on the sennheisers, i'm using a pair of HD650s right now and they are incredible as they have been for years. Good investment.

The Sennheiser HD280 is still the best pair of headphones I've used. I've tried using later models but they were either too expensive or uncomfortable.
