About using 2 headphones in 1 PC without using splitter
Posted On 2020-02-20
In this day and age, the use of headphones has become a widespread occurrence. There are a multitude of varying quality models available on the market, all ready to be connected to your preferred device.
Normally, one pair of headphones per system is adequate, but what about using 2 headphones in 1 PC without using splitter?
And this one is linked to another problem. Knowing that you can attach one pair of headphones to multiple devices through Bluetooth, all thanks to Multipoint technology, is the reverse possible?
Can we have multiple Bluetooth headphones connected simultaneously to one device?
The reply is: yes, we can.
We’ll learn in this text how to attach multiple Bluetooth headphones to a single device. We’ll explore ways to connect more than a pair of headphones effectively to laptops / desktops and smartphones, some running on Android, iOS, or Windows OS.
If you want to connect two headphones at once to your PC, your existing, pre-installed Bluetooth device might not be able to do so.
This is especially true for laptops – apparently the pre-installed Bluetooth device isn’t strong enough, so a good solution would be an external emitter.
This solution works not only with desktops and laptops, but with any smart device that has a headphone jack as well.
Make sure that it can support at least two pairs of headphones when purchasing the external Bluetooth signal emitter, and that it has a low latency.
The lower the latency, the higher the overall sound quality and, most importantly, there are no sound delays that you will suffer. Also, latency depends on the headphones you use, so the better the headphones, the lower the latency.
Updating the Bluetooth drivers for your laptop / desktop will be a smart idea to prevent any possible device issues. We will continue further after all that is completed.
The device we’ll use is the Archeer 2 in 1 Bluetooth Transmitter / Receiver, as an example. This device can be connected to both laptops and desktops, as well as any other smart device with a headphone jack, whether it is a smartphone or a television.
You need to make sure that the device is set in TX (transfer mode) when using this particular mode-on one side of the device there is a slider with TX and RX settings. Push the lever to the side of the TX, and you’re done.
Put the computer into AUX (auxiliary) mode when connecting it to your laptop. Using a separate switch from the device side, you can do this and transfer it to the AUX side and then use the auxiliary cable to connect the transmitter to your laptop physically.
Both the transmitter and the laptop have the correct jacks for you to plug the cable in.
