    Connecting two headphones to my laptop?

    Hello everyone. I use an ASUS G46W ROG edition, and I'd like to be able to connect two headphones to it so that two people can listen to audio off of my computer at the same time.

    I know those Y-cables/adaptors exist, but I'm not looking to use those, as they merely split the audio signal - I need something that'll duplicate the audio signal, then output it to two different devices.

    Instead, I'd rather use some sort of USB audio card that has atleast two 3.5mm output ports, and will output audio out of both ports.

    Does something like this exist? If so, then could you give me some recommendations?
