Using Multiple Audio Devices Simultaneously!?

I am looking to find out if it is possible for me to have a headset operating on my Xonar DG dedicated sound card, while also having a USB headset and the onboard HD Asus Audio all running simultaneously. It would be great if I could have 2 or more headsets in use for my girlfriend or friends to take advantage of while watching movies, etc.

    I'm not sure if that's possible but wouldn't it be easier to just get a head phone splitter? A quick search on Amazon provided a link for this one but i'm sure there are others out there.

  2. If each of the listeners is trying to hear a different audio stream, then yes, since the release of Vista that is reasonably possible using multiple audio devices, but if you want all of the listeners to hear the same thing, I suggest as neieus did, to just get a splitter / multiplexer device.
  3. Do they make usb/3.0mm splitters? One of my headsets is USB while the other is 3.0mm.
  4. Radio Shack.com or monoprice.com would be the places to look for a splitter that's being discussed.
