    Hey, I got this problem here. Normally when we plug in our headsets / earpiece to our laptop / desktop, the speakers would switch off and the music or sound would be played through the headset right.

    However, my problem is when i plug in my headset, both the speakers and headset worked at the same time, which means i hear both the music playing thru the speakers and headset. How do i solve this issue? I wanna only listen to my headset when i plug them in to my computer but not the speaker.

    i've always just unplugged the speakers and plugged the headset in....never had more than 1 mic jack, so i never had the option to do that...

    If it isn't too much of a problem, just unplug the speakers and plug the headset in...

    I know what he's saying. Usually when you plug headphones in, the sound automatically transfers from comming out of the speakers and goes to the headphones. You said it happens when you plug into your laptop/desktop. Are you saying that it does it on both pc's? Also, some things you can try is make sure your plugging the headphone wire into the correct input, if its a laptop then there are usually two audio inputs (one for microphone and one for headphones) which I'm sure you probably know but its always good to double check. Because I know on my laptop I can plug my headphones in the headphone jack and sound automatically transfers from the speakers to my headphones and is the same way on my desktop. Also you could try updating your sound card drivers or if your sound card comes with a setup speaker config utility, try running through that again.

    good luck
