    Hello and thank you for viewing this post.

    So here's what I need to happen; I require two usb headsets to both function on one PC. I need the sound to be delivered to each individual headset and the microphone from each individual headset to be picked up by the pc.

    I connected both USB headsets to the computer. They are both listed within Control Panel > Sound. I opened voice recorder and both mics recorded successfully. I played back my recording, but it would only come through on the default headset. Switch the default headset and the play back would switch as well. Both headsets would test just fine without having to change the defaults.

    So is there a way in Windows to deliver the output to both headsets? Or perhaps within Media Player to play to both default and secondary headsets?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Not that I'm aware. Windows only allows a single device for each type of audio.
