Can someone tell me if headsets for a home sound system and a pc system are the same? Can i use a headset for a home system on a pc without causing a problem?

Yes, you can, Provided you check the resistance of the home headset is the same as the requirement for the pc headset. You may also require an adaptor depending on the size of the jack plug.Meshuga.

So long as the headset's impedance is equal to or exceeds that required by the PC. All will be well.

A lower impedance causes overheating of circuits - which causes damage. I am not 100% sure of the reasoning cos school was 45 years ago. But the above fact is correct.
