    Headphone Help!
    Hi Everyone,

    I'm having trouble attaching my Turtlebeach X41's to my imac. The problem is it doesn't have a digital output port. Is there a plug that i can get to get these headphones to work?

    Texas, where else?

    Every iMac made beginning with the G5 in Aug of 2004 has had optical out.

    Don't have a clue what a Turtlebeach X41 happens to be. But, if your iMac is newer than that listed above and if the Turtlebeach has an optical input you need a mini-toslink to toslink adapter or cable like any one of these.

    The audio port on all the last few years of iMacs and notebooks is a combo analog and optical out.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
