Great product, but with one glaring discrepancy: The microphone port is disabled when the switch is set to speaker output. This assumes the user won't use a microphone simultaneously with speakers, which in fact I do quite often. Other than that, a very handy device.

Other reviews claiming mono are wrong - when I first plugged it in I too noticed all the sound coming out of only 1 channel. However I then pushed the plug fully and firmly in and it works fully in stereo confirmed by several tests and hasn't reverted back.
Sound quality?
I bought 2 of these, since I have surround sound headphones (Zalman 5.1s) and good speakers (Klipsch Promedia 4.1s) to switch between. This is combined with an Audigy 2 ZS sound card so I was very concerned about losing any quality. After comparing several sources (mp3's, speaker tests, games) with and without the switch, I'm personally not able to discern any difference in sound quality so far in the hours I've used it.
In short works in stereo and can save a lot of hassle constantly changing plugs in the back of your PC. Definitely recommended.

Having this switch spares a lot of groping around trying to change from headphones to speakers. One flick of a switch and you go easily back and forth. I notice no sound loss, interference or distortion.

Good, solid product.

A simple device. Plugs into the sound card and allows you to choose either the computer speakers or a headset. Works well when the kids want to play computer games with the volume up. The switch has been attached to my PC for four months. It does what the product description says it will do. It is easy to hook up.

I was tired of reaching behind the desk in order to unplug the speakers and plugging the headphones in (my front headset connectors don't work), so this device came to the rescue. It's simple, but it does exactly what you need. It doesn't get 5 stars because of the following reason: 1) microphone jack is not active when set to output sound to the speakers. They should have added 4 jacks, two for mics and two for audio out. 2) it's too light. The mere weight of the wires is enough to make it tilt backwards on the desk. My solution was, at first, to move it further closer to me (more wires showing, ick). The second solution was to tape it down to the desk.

I finally got fed up with crawling under my desk to reach the back of my PC to disconnect the speakers and switch to my headset so I bought this. No problems with the switch so far at all, and no noticeable degradation in sound. Cheap and effective!

I am a professional graphic artist and avid gamer as well. But because of my desk setup it's extremely difficult to keep trying to crawl under my desk and switch headphones to speakers. Answer? I searched for the company that produces my great headphones - Plantronics. This switch is perfectly suited for my needs. Simple to hook up, intuitive, and great sound. For those who complained about mono out of this switch I would advise making sure that you have it plugged in properly and all the way. The switch works just fine, stereo and all. No complaints! Thanks Plantronics!

This is a great devise. Just a bit pricey but worth it in the long run. It is essentially an A-B switch for headphones and speakers. I prefer listening to audio content via speakers but sometimes I am working in the vicinity of another person - typically my husband - who does not want to hear my audio book or whatever while he is working in the same room and needing to concentrate on what he is doing. I simply flip the switch and now the sound goes to the headphones which are already connected and ready to use. No need to waste time fining the headphones, unplugging the speakers, plugging in the headphones then repeating the whole process when the time comes to undo the connection. In less than one second, the switch is made and everyone is happy.....and undisturbed. When he leaves the room after finishing whatever it is that he was doing, I can simply flip the switch and I am back to speakers again. It is a very useful devise and works with anything which has an audio output an a headphone jack. Such would include a TV, a radio, a computer, CD player or whatever. If there are times when you use speakers and other times when you use headphones, this devise allows you to effortlessly switch between the two. It is ideal for anytime two people are sharing a room and one of them does not want to listen to what the other person is playing.
