Default Headset question?

I have a SteelSeries Diablo III headset it has a USB port would I be able to buy a female USB to 3.5mm jack to make it into normal headphones?

No. USB is a digital connection and the 3.5mm port is an analog connection. This product doesn't look like it would ever work for anything. Maybe an Apple ipod shuffle which uses a 3.5 mm port as the USB connection.

You need a new set of cans. If it doesn't have a 3.5mm jack then you can't use them as normal headphones.
