Hey guys, I need some help. I have an audio imput on my computer (green) and my speakers are attached into it.

However, I have a pair of headphones with a microphone that I want to plug in at the same time.

Is there a extension that I can buy so I can have my speakers, and my headphones plugged in at the same time?

the cord on the headphones isn't long enough to plug in to the audio imput on the speakers and the microphone plug at the back of the computer at the same time.

I'm not sure if this made any sense, but any help would be appreciated. :tazz:

Check your motherboard data to see if it supports :

"Intel front panel audio cable"

Check this website: http://www.frontx.com/cpx110.html

You can have your speakers connected in rear & headphone & mic connected in front . . . . the headset when plugged in will automatically shut speaker down

This is a "neat & clean" method/technique" of what you want.. .

Mine do, but I can't plug in my headphone because it has a microphone. The microphone jack is at the back of the computer. :tazz:
