Audio switcher

You can use a splitter to plug both your laptop and phone into the line in port on your PC, then enable audio playback in the windows sound settings.

Now you can plug your headphones into the front of your PC and the speakers into the back and hear things from all 3 devices.

Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone knows of a product that I could plug my 3.5mm from my laptop, desktop and phone into and then have 2 outputs? So one output can go to my speakers and another to my headphones. I'm thinking it's basically like a HDMI switcher but for 3.5mm jacks. In my 10 minute google search I found someone mentioning they made an arduino do it, but gave no more information on that or possible products to fix my problem.

 

Thank you

My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project
