How to Hook Up Headphones to a Laptop via a USB Port


Headphones can be connected to headphone jacks on laptops and various other audio devices, allowing users a private audio experience that will not disturb others in the immediate area. If you find that you need to connect your headphones to a laptop with a broken or occupied headphone port, you can make use of the laptop's USB port to do so.

Things You'll Need

  • USB audio adapter
  • Connect the USB end of your USB audio adapter to an available USB port on your laptop.

  • Connect the male jack on your headphones to the headphone port of your USB audio adapter.

  • Turn on your laptop and test the adapter by playing an audio file. You do not need to install a driver for the adapter; it will work automatically, allowing you to hear the audio file on your headphones through the USB port.
