Headphone Jack adapter

Daniel0898

Hello! I just bought this: https://www.showmecables.com/stereo-3-5mm-male-to-right-angle-3-5mm-female-adapter      So that I could constantly leave that plugged into the side of my laptop. When I plug it in however, it registers as a device, which I didn't think it would..I can have it be a mic in, line in, Dell device (AY410-AE215) Headphones/headset, or a speaker. 

 

I just want to be able to have audio come through the speakers when the adapter is plugged in and when I plug my headphones into the adapter I want the sound in my headphones.... 

 

If anyone could help me that would be great, thanks in advance!

it registers as a output device because it is plugged into your laptop. it does because if it didn't, the headphone jack would be completely useless (or just annoying to enable) 

 

you can disable headphone out in settings, then enable it when you need to, or you can just unplug it.

Samsung 850 EVO 240 GB 

138 is a good number.

It's a bit of a story but basically I ordered a Dell XPS 13 for college and it came with the audio jack broken. Not a big deal so I call up dell and they send a guy out to my house to fix it. He does his thing and takes care of the issue but he told me that these jacks are really only rated for about 200 or so plug ins. So he suggested I get an extender, and I completely agreed. So I got one for 2$ and here I am...

 yeah, no way to do it without manually doing it. Why the 90 degree adapter? Why not just plug headphones directly in?
