Is it possible to simply switch between a headset and desktop speakers?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I bought Razer Carchias headphones, and I have a logitech g110 keyboard. I plug it the h. phones into the keyboard, and it works fine, but is there an easy way to switch between my desktop speakers and the headphones? I have the RealTek HD Audio drivers as well. Any suggestions? I don't want to unplug jacks and replug them in.

Very easy.

Right click the volume button.
Playback devices.
Right click on the headphones or speakers depending on what you want to listen to.
Set as default.

Done

I simply use a "Y" jack from radio shack. Gold plate, like it matters, for about $4. Then when you don't want to hear your speakers you just turn down the volume on the speakers. Simple.

As far as the situation you are same thing, turn down the volume on the speakers when you put your headset on?!

Thanks. With the playback method, there is no way to hotkey stuff eh?

I can only have one though right, like, what i wish is, that I could have both plugged in, but turn off my speakers manually, and have my headset play, or turn off my headset manually from my keyboard, and listen on my speakers, by manually I mean turning the knob on the speakers.

Well I dunno if this helps but you can set the headset volume default lower than the speakers so when you do plug it in, it automatically lowers the volume so you don't have music blasting in your ears. On the realtek manager if you click on "device advanced settings" there is an option for front and rear outputting 2 separate streams. After doing that, you can set the default volume for speakers and headset individually as well as some other options.
