post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

as the title says I'm looking for something similar to this (

) because I want to be able to switch between my headphones and speakers. Any suggestions? (The product in the link is discontinued)

Thanks guys!

Thanks for that post!
I was just wondering if I were to plug in my headphones (RX700) and zalman mic to some speakers could I turn off the sound coming from the speakers if I wanted to listen to the headphones? Or, would I just end up turning everything off by turning off the speakers?

thanks +rep

Yea the audio just switches between the headset and speakers, there is ability to turn off mic.

but essentially it doesn't allow you to turn off all audio source, just ability to switch in between speaker and headphones.

Sound quality loss, i am not sure. due to i am using some really cheap monitor speakers. therefore if there was any quality loss i wouldnt be able to distinguish it anyways.

Should be fine for the case due to it is analog to analog so maybe very little or no quality loss at all.
