Hi guys!

Any headset will work so long as it has a microphone.

I am just curious. I plugged in my iphone earbuds and played black ops2. I could hear myself talking in game and the mic symbol was next to my name in game. I thought the gamepad mic doesn't work? I dont know if any one else heard me though I guess.

Iphone earbuds usually have a mic built in them. It's not the gamepad's mic.

I have a related question... if you did plug in a PC headset, would it function completely like headphones with a mic? Or is there a way to have just voice chat on the headset and the rest of the game sounds still on the TV, a la Xbox 360 headset? Thanks.

In Black Ops 2 you hear the game audio on the TV and choice chat on your headset.
