Well it depends on space and if you want the speakers off when using the headset.
you will need a headphone jack and a 470 ohm resistor for each channel to connect to the audio source.

My ipod classic is only playing out of 1 headphone, it is the same with all headphones


Step 1:
Your trusty iPod has been a close and reliable friend for a long time but one morning only the sound of air comes through the headphones. The likely culprit is a loose or broken headphone jack that is in need of repair. Rather than spend an exorbitant amount of money to have someone fix it you can easily make the repair on your own and have your iPod friend back. Read on to learn how to fix a broken headphone jack for a fifth generation 30GB or 60GB iPod video.

Open the iPod case with a small flathead screwdriver by slipping it under the centerline of the case. You will find a series of clips you have to release in order for the case to open up about an inch. Locate the headphone jack connection and verify that there are no broken wires. Fix broken wires quickly by twisting the wires back together and wrapping with electrical tape. Test the iPod for sound by connecting your headphones to the jack. Replace the wires completely if you find static coming from the iPod jack. Fold a business card twice so that it wants to unfold and slip it into the case over the blue sponge. This creates the pressure needed to hold the jack in place and allow a solid connection. Push the case together without engaging the clips on the side and test to make sure the jack is now working. Try a thicker business card or fold the first one again to get enough pressure onto the jack connection if the first card didn't fix the problem. Press the case fully together until the clips click into place. Use extra care when inserting your headset to ensure the jack remains in place.

My headset is not working


Most Dell computers have special hardware and software that are set up to automatically adjust the configuration of the headphone ports when headphones are connected, muting the primary speakers in the process. If no sound is coming out of your headphones, this is most likely caused by a configuration issue that can be resolved with a few simple steps.

Basic Headphone Troubleshooting
If no sound is coming from your headphones, confirm that the headphones work properly by using them with a different device. After this, confirm that the headphones are plugged into the proper jack. If your CD/DVD drive has a headphone jack in front, audio will only be played through this jack when you are playing a disc. On a desktop computer, the correct jack to use for headphones is usually color-coded green, while notebook computers will have headphone icons next to the correct jacks. Finally, check the speaker icon in the system tray to make sure that your sound output is not muted. b> Troubleshooting Notebooks b> Most Dell notebooks use a special type of audio jack. The jack, along with the sound drivers that are installed, automatically detect whether headphones or speakers are plugged in and adjust the sound output accordingly. If this does not happen when headphones are plugged in, the sound drivers may be at fault. Visit the Dell support website and download the most recent sound drivers for your notebook. If this does not help, some users have reported success with removing the sound drivers completely and letting Windows install generic drivers automatically. Last Resort b> If all other options have been exhausted, the last resort in troubleshooting a headphone jack is running a complete system recovery operation. This will completely erase all of the information on your primary hard drive partition and reinstall Windows along with the drivers for all of your hardware. This is an extreme measure, as you will lose all of the information that you have stored on the hard drive. However, it will resolve the issue if it is caused by a software problem. If the issue remains, the headphone jack must be replaced. Hope this helps.

Headphones are a convenient way to experience audio-rich entertainment on your own terms. Headphones allow you to customize your listening level without disturbing other people in your general vicinity. Headphone cables can be a hassle, however, so many new headphone models feature a wireless connection. PCs tend to be wire jungles, so eliminating one wire from a potentially jumbled mess can be an intriguing feature of wireless headphones. Connecting wireless headphones to your PC allows you to take advantage of the benefits of listening to your movies, music or games through headphones without the struggle of the headphone cable.

Charge up or place batteries in your headphones and transmitter. Wireless headphones require power to function. Many wireless headphones come with a charger base. You need to charge your headphones before you attempt to connect them to your PC. Some wireless headphone models require batteries, which you must install before you connect the headphones to the PC. Connect the transmitter to your PC. The transmitter may connect via the PC's headphone jack or USB port. If the transmitter connects to the headphone jack, plug it in and check your headphone's user guide to verify how to synchronize the headphones to the transmitter. If the transmitter connects via USB, you will likely need to install software to use your wireless headphones. If your wireless headphones are Bluetooth-compatible, continue to the next step. Pair your headphones via Bluetooth to your PC. If your PC is not Bluetooth-equipped, you will need to install a Bluetooth USB dongle. Turn on your headphones and open the Bluetooth software on your PC. Scan for Bluetooth devices from your PC. Your headphones should appear. Select the headphones and follow any further instructions to complete the pairing process. Test the headphones. Pick out a song or a video and play it on your PC. Connect your wireless headphones and verify that you can hear the audio. Find the volume controls on your headphones and adjust them to make sure the volume changes correctly. If your headphones are not functioning properly, verify that the headphones are turned on. If the headphones are on and you do not hear anything, verify that your transmitter is functioning properly and that you have your volume turned up on your PC. Recharge your headphones when you are finished using them. To ensure that the headphones are ready anytime you need them, you must always place them on the charging base when you are finished using them. If the headphones are battery-powered, be sure that you always have spare batteries on hand. Hope this helps.

Your system is designed to interrupt the signal flow once headphones are attached. It can not be changed without internal modifications. There is no control to do this.

Hi my headphone jack stoped working on my acer 3680 how do i fix this problem


Typicaly when a headphone jack stops working it means that there is a hardware issue. Check to see if you get sound from the PC under normal circumstances, (without headphones). If so... Your headphone jack may have come lose from the main board. In this case it will need to be taken to a shop to be re-soldered to the board, or just replaced with a new one. If you do not get sound even from the standard speakers, it very well could be a software issue, (currupted driver, etc.). In this case. Go to your PC's support page on the web and try re-installing the driver for your sound device.
