Switching between headphones & speakers
10-17-2011, 01:54 PM,
Question  Switching between headphones & speakers
I have the ASRock 870 EXTREME3 and I'm using the onboard sound right now. I want to switch between my headphones and speakers without having to move plugs around. I was able to do this on my old Turtle Beach Santa Cruz sound card, so I figured new motherboards would be able to but I haven't figured out how. Any ideas?

RE: Switching between headphones & speakers
Most simple way to do this would be to plug the speakers into the back of the motherboard and plug the headphones into the case plug on the front of the case when you need them.

Most onboard sound cards will detect this and automatically mute the speakers and switch the audio to the headphones when they are plugged into the front jack.
