    hi,
    i just wonder is there any possibility to hear music from speaker and headset at the same time? i got a headset now, but i also want to use the speaker to listen the alarm sound.
    Thank you for viewing this tread and also any advise will be appreciated.

    nobody can answer that question until you tell us what this mysterious audio source is that you are refering to

    you can split the audio coming from the sound card with a Y splitter, but what you hear in the headphones, is what you are going to hear in the speakers as well. if you are trying to single out a specific sound to come out of the speakers only, this is not possible

    thanks,
    i just want to use them for same audio output, as the speaker has voice and so to headset. I found that my pc has 2 sound ports which was located behind the case and another one was located at the side of case/box. That's why i think it is possible to connect 2 different speakers to one pc. And regarding the Y-splitter, how much for that?

    kaaos,

    There may not be any Radio Shacks in Malaysia (see hornetsjet's profile).

    Any store that sells "Walkman" type products and accessories should be able sell the needed splitter. Just tell the salesperson you want to plug two headphones into one Walkman.

    As for the two sets sound ports mentioned by hornetsjet; they may be wired internally such that putting a plug into one of the outputs disconnects the outputs to the second one. We have one PC with front and rear jacks. Plugging headphones into the front jack kills the speakers plugged into the rear jack.
