OK I have a small mic and small speaker that is the size of a quarter. Actually it's from the broken DS.

I did a search on all controller related links. nothing.

Does anyone know where the speaker and mic points are on the controller.
I did some continuity test to see how the OEM headset is wired to the jack but it does not make sense to me. I do not mind that the volume will not be available. More than likely it will need to be on full volume just to hear it.
The mute I can add a on/off push small button to the mic wires.

thanks in advance.

i would look to RDC for that type of info... but what you can do is do a search for the mic layout (wired 360 mic) and it will have that info also

It's not going to work if ya just solder it up to the correct spots. You'll have to either first remove the headset connector from the board or put a plug in the jack. The reason is the headset connector is a 'closed circuit' type, think of it like a switch, and this is how the controller 'knows' a headset is plugged in or not. If that switch is closed it knows there's no headset plugged in, so if ya were to just solder up your mic/speaker it wouldn't work. That switch needs to be open for the controller to use the headset jack, so ya can either put a plug in it to open it, like a normal headset does, or just remove the connector from the board.

This kind of thing will also keep the controller from working with a wireless headset as it will always believe a wired one is being used, that switch has to be closed for it to work with a wireless one so you'd have to install a switch to mimic the one in the headset connector if ya ever wanted to go from your setup to a wireless headset and then back.
