TWO usb headsets


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have two usb headsets that me and my friend would like to use. However we can only get one of the headsets to work. They are both the same headsets but one comes up as the make and the other the make (2) is there a way of linking the both so windows pick up the headsets as one device? I know this is a random question but we are trying to set up a mock cockpit!

 

Thanks!

I wish that were possible...

 

Its my understanding that when you install a USB headset, it creates it's own sound card which effectively closes all other output devices, including, but not limited to, any headphone jacks you may have in your computer.

That's not entirely true. While you cannot use two USB headsets (as far as I know), you can use a USB headset in conjuntion with headphone jacks. For example, I get VATSIM voice through/from my USB headset, and sound comes through the speakers...BUT when the ol' lady gets tired of listening to the drone of two PT6A-60As pushing 105" Hartzell props, then I plug in my iPod earbuds, and stick one of them in my free ear (my USB headset only has one "speaker"). Anyhow, while that method works, I don't think you can set it up where you guy is on the USB headset, and another is on one plugged into the headphone/mic jacks; I think those can only be used for sim sound, if you're using a USB headset.

 

...I hope all of that made some sense...
