Hi I have a home studio and everytime i want to switch from the speakers to the studio headphones, i have to go to the back of my pc and switch the cable ports. Is there some kind of cable that will make it so i dont have to go back and switch it, so i can just have it connect to the audio port about 2 feet long so i can just plug it in and out. Hope that made sense but its a hard thing to desribe

Hi DjD,

maybe this is what you need

this one is better in terms of quality.


BTW: you may want to check at the back of your speakers if it has a
headphone output before buying any adapters/splitters.

The audio output jack on a motherboard or sound card is typically a 1/8" stereo jack. So, what you'd be looking for is a 1/8" stereo plug to 1/8" stereo jack cable. Something like this.
