mini jacks to USB

  wallbash 10:00 16 Nov 2004

After a miracle. Have just bought a set of headphones+ mic to try out Skype. Works well apart from the fact that I can use the headset or the monitor speakers. If I had bought usb headset I could use both at the same time. Saves scrambling beneath the desk when/if I get a call!

So the question is , how can I plug my mini jacks into a usb port. or do I just go and buy another set

Don't think this is possible. USB is digital, audio jacks are analogue. If you were to do it, you would need some kind of D/A converter. Probably cheaper to get a USB headset.

Have a chat with Maplin's click here they can usually provide the answer and equipment, if at all possible.

This is about the nearest you could get:

You would also need an adaptor for the original audio output to the above device...

Cheaper to buy the proper version from the start.
