Just a quick question: Is it possible to plug in two pairs of headphones and have them both output the same audio? I use onboard sound and have an audio jack in back, and on that connect to the front. They both work fine separately but when I plug headphones into both, audio only comes out of one (the first one plugged in). Can I change it so that audio comes out of both? Thanks a lot. And its the same audio...I dont want two sound cards that output different audio.

You can do this using a Y-splitter cable such as:


The volume available in each headphone will be reduced to some degree - how noticeable will depend on how much power the sound chip in your system has available.
