Audio has quickly become one of the fastest-growing consumer electronics categories, with people spending on average 9 hours per day listening to music, podcasts, TV and audiobooks. Due to this popularity of audio products being created more rapidly and efficiently than ever before – which allows creators to produce higher quality audio content for fans and listeners alike – but sometimes speakers or headphones can become disruptive or irritating.
At times like these, it can be helpful to know whether speakers and headphones can coexist simultaneously. Thankfully, the answer is “Yes”, you can have speakers and headphones on at the same time, depending on the device and software settings. Some computers and audio devices allow users to output sound simultaneously to multiple devices, but configuration might be required in sound settings.
When it comes to playing music through your PC, there are various methods for simultaneously listening through speakers or headphones. You could utilize software designed specifically to do this or alter the default audio device output option or connect an external sound switch – each method having their own set of benefits but may not work for everyone. To simplify matters further this article will demonstrate how Windows 10 allows users to do just this without any additional software being needed.
Before connecting your speakers and headphones to your PC, right-clicking on the speaker icon in your system tray and selecting sound options will allow you to make changes. Navigating to the Listen tab, check “Listen to this device”, then choose your headphones from “Playback through this device drop-down menu”, click Apply then.
Now, whenever you want to listen to music with headphones or speakers, simply click on the volume control in the taskbar and adjust accordingly. Pressing either of your headphones’ pause/skip buttons will stop/start playback accordingly; additionally, their microphone enables calls.
Additionally to these features, some headphones offer other advantages as well. For instance, they may provide a wider spectrum of sound frequencies to create an engaging audio experience, support vocals and instruments well and deliver deeper bass notes than ever before. Some can even come equipped with noise cancelling technology so as to block out ambient noise during work or study while easily controlling music with just a simple touch – ideal for those wanting a distraction-free music listening experience while working or studying!
