I hooked it up last night and it works great. This is obviously subjective but the Audio seems... much better then what I hear when my headphones are connected to the controller. The audio seems to have more depth and clarity I was really surprised. The audio does cut out for a sub second every now and again - not really noticeable or annoying. The sound bar still works exactly as it did before. I get audio out of both the sound bar and and headphones. I can mute the sound bar or turn it off and it doesn't affect the headphone audio at all. Now though - you have to use the game audio settings to control volume -etc. The audio settings in Destiny are pretty good - so no issues there. I didn't chat over the connect but I don't expect that to be an issue. I'll probably do that tonight. Chatting over kinect isn't a new thing you can find lots of tutorials and reviews. Having the audio restricted to your headphones will just make it a lot easier.

Connection details:
S/SPIF splitter male -> Xbox S/SPIF input
Plug Optical cable into 1 end of the splitter and other end into the Digital to Analog converter. (Note you have to switch it to S/SPIF from Coaxial - default is Coaxial)
Take your existing optical cable (that goes to your sound bar or whatever) and plug it into other end of the splitter.
The converter has a 2mm mini-phono jack female input - so you can just plug your headphones directly into that. I purchased an extension cable.

So using this method can you use you're microphone on your headset?

No. You need to use Kinect to talk into. When T2 comes out, it will support this.
