3.5mm headset plug and play?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Are the 3.5mm headsets plug and play like the usb ones?

Also, if I were to use a 3.5mm headset and plug it in, would the sound automatically be played through the headset?

Its not plug and play in the same sense as a USB headset. Its solely dependent on what audio solution you have, onboard/dedicated etc. If your audio solution is able to detect when a device is plugged in, then yes. If not , then obviously not.

The major difference between analog headsets (3.5mm), and digital headsets (usb) is that the most, if not all, of the usb ones have an integrated audio chipset within them that works independent of your audio solution.

Go analog, it will scale with the quality of your sound card.
