Hi picklsey, I suspect that what is happening is that you are plugging the headphone into a jack socket that incorporates a switch to cut off the speakers. If I'm right, then you will need to disable the switch. This would be a soldering iron job on the sound card. Alternatively you could make a switch box with a headphone jack to connect to the speaker cable. Either of these would put the telephone sound on both speakers and headphones, which may not be what you want. You could, of course put a changeover switch in the switch box I suggested above which might do what you want.

Arn't voip phones run from the USB port?

If not then you could maybe purchase a "Y" connecter and plug both items into that. I do this with my setup and it works fine, in fact I have four outputs running from one speaker output on my sound card. Not all are working at the same time, of course, but it works fine.
