I need help setting up my audio

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello linustechtips I do need tips and please help me. How to do I use both my headset with mic "typical gaming headsets" and open speakers "Edifier brand speakers" at the same time? The reason why I want them both so that even though I am playing games wearing a headset with mic I want my friends to hear what I am hearing with the use of my speakers. My device is a pc and I know that it is doable by plugging the speaker's 3.5mm jack to the green port on the motherboard and the headset on the pc tower's front panel green port. The problem is my pc tower's front panel audio port the green port is actually not working maybe it is damaged due to the quality issue let's just say my pc tower is close to be a generic case. I have heard that it is not advisable plugging any gaming headsets on the pc tower's front panel audio ports compared to plugging on the motherboard. Going back to my question, can you give me tips how make them work together my gaming headset and my speakers. Thank you so much.

There are many better ways to share PC audio than speakers, you should consider something like screen sharing on discord.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B


Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.


Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - MSI GTX 650 - some 7200RPM SATA II thing - Ubuntu (at the moment)

Yeah don't do that. It will sound horrible. Most voice chat applications let you share system sound. Which I still can't understand why you would want to do that, but if you want to you can.
