I'm unsure where to post this question, so sorry if I'm in the wrong place. I have a Sennheiser Headset with one ear piece and a mic that I intended to use for Skype. My question is how in Windows 7 would I configure my headset to only receive the skype audio, and rest of the audio go through my speakers. Looks like it is not possible, but I'm not sure. I mean, if an XBOX can do it, why couldn't a PC right?
If they both use 3.5mm jack than there will never be a way. You can get a usb to 3.5mm sound cards pretty cheap(I bought a headset that came with it.), and I'm sure there are some other external sound cards but you need multiple sound cards to separate each output, at least for 3.5mm.
