The Audio Adapter is used to connect your headset to the controller, which sends and receives the audio from your gaming device. The Adapter Audio Jack Board is what connects your headphones to the Audio Adapter. If the Audio Adapter is broken, no signal will come to or from the headset from the controller.

This device has seven screws of three different lengths. To avoid confusion when reassembling the device, please use the Magnetic Project Mat or something that can organize the smaller parts when disassembling.

  1. Wedge the Plastic Opening Tool below the plug and between the bottom plate and the body.
    • Be firm but controlled with the Spudger. Excessive force may cause tool marks or crack the plastic causing structural damage.

    • The clips on the inside of the bottom cover that attach to the bottom of the device may make removal difficult. Be patient and work slowly.

    • Wedge the Spudger at an upward angle in between the two pieces of plastic above the audio jack. Be careful, this may take a firm push.

    • Gently point the Spudger at a downward angle into the gap between the bottom cover and the rest of the device. Take care to work the Spudger all the way in between the pieces when doing so.

    • Use the Spudger as a lever to gently pop the bottom cover over the lip of the audio jack.

    • Unscrew the two T5 Torx head screws found on either side of the input for the controller. These screws are silver and 7.75mm in length.

    • Unscrew the three smaller black T5 Torx head screws. These screws are only 5mm in length and found around the perimeter of the input controller.

    • Handle with care. The wires and the traces on the circuit board break easily.

    • Insert the sharp end of the Metal Spudger in between the male and the female ends of the nine pin connector and slowly work the ends apart.

    • Remove the two Phillips #0 head screws on either side of the Audio Jack board. These screws are 5.5 mm in length.

    • Remove the Audio Jack Board.


To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.
