One Headphone Multiple Sources.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi

 

I'm looking for some tips/advice of how to best solve this technical problem:
Basically I want to hook up my gaming consoles and PC to one set of headphones and listen to all the audio simultaneously
so far I have simply used my PC audio card line in to capture the audio of my Playstation 3 so i can listen to music or voice chat on the PC while still hearing the audio of the PS3.
the problem I face now is that i recently bought the Playstation 4 and wish to use it in the same manner as the Playstation 3, without unplugging or switching cables back and forth.

I was wondering if an audio mixer would be the way to solve this problem or if there are other alternatives?
I have looked into getting a receiver and using it that way, but i have not seen a receiver that allows you to mix audio inputs.

so any tips you can give regarding what would be the best solution or option would be most appreciated.

I think a mixing desk is probably your only option.

the problem I just realized, the PlayStation 4 only able to output audio via s/pdif or hdmi
not sure if a mixer exists with those inputs.

would really like to know if there are other people who have come across this problem or something similar
and what solution/options they have used.
