Default PC Speaker/Mobile Phone Output

Hi Guys, hoping someone out there knows the answer to this, probably very simple and i'm not searching properly.

I work from home and in front of the PC with my headphones on. Problem is I receive over 100 calls day and keep have to take them off to receive calls. At the same time I've been looking for a set of reasonable desktop speakers too.

I've been trying to find a set of PC speakers that have the ability to switch between the PC and the mobile phone as an input when I get a call or by a switch on the speakers. The aim is to when I receive a call for the audio to output from the speakers or the headphone while I keep working away in front of the computer.

Would anyone know how i can sort this out?

Also any recommendations on PC speakers?

Thanks in advance guys

Plug phone into line in on the pc? Then in audio options select listen to this channel. Any phone soundswwill automatically play through whatever audio output you are using


Do this, but plug the phone into the blue line in on the back of the PC, and tick this box for the line in.

The above method or get one of these from the local electronics store


Plug the phone into one input, the pc into the other input and the speaker into the output. when you get a call, change inputs.

One of these amplifiers may be a solution and supply hi-fi sound quality too


Switching between two inputs
Listening as long as you do you'll should have quality sound

I'll get back to you on speakers if you're still interested
