Hello:

I want to buy a Skype headset so I can talk over Skype with the headset on. I have a standard desktop. I have two small Logitech speakers plugged into the standard jack (you know, the little circular ones) on the back of the tower. The speakers sit on either side of the monitor, like the cheap ones Dell would give you for buying a computer. One of the speakers (the one with the volume knob) has a jack (the little circular ones) for a headset.

My understanding is that the Skype headsets (you know, headsets you can use for internet telephony) have a cable that splits into two end. One end is supposed to be plugged into the stereo jack, and one into the audio. It will be hard for me to do this consider that the tower is on the floor and the speaker is next to the monitor. In other words, I can't plug one cable into both of these sources because they are two far apart. So what is your suggestion? It would be nice if there were a cable one of whose branches was for stereo and the other of whose braches was for audio. But is seems like all the male to female cables that split into two ends are for stereo. So what should I do?

Thanks for your help.

How about just by passing the external speakers and direct connecting both ports at the back of the tower?

The jack on the speakers is for headsets with no microphone.

You need to connect your Skype headset to the computer directly

Pink plug to pink jack (Microphone)
Green Plug to Green jack (Headphones/Speakers)

Sorry I didn't explain myself better. The tower is all the way on the floor and I don't think the cable is long enough. That is why I was looking for an adapter of some sort.

It turns out that they have PC headset speaker switches. Thanks all the same.
