    Using 2 sets of USB Headphone/Mic on Windows 8.1


    Hi I have a Logitech 540 and another Logitech 3XX USB headphone & mic and I'm wondering can I easily configure them to both work simultaneously?

    The application is for a Google Voice call. So two people can conference call another person from one computer.

    Plug the first set of headphones into one of the USB ports on the computer.

    Click the "Start" button followed by "Control Panel." Once the Control Panel window opens, select the "Sound" option.

    Change the speaker option from the standard "Computer/Laptop" speakers to "Headphones." This makes a headphone connection the current default setting (you can change this back later).

    Plug the other set of USB headphones into an available USB port on the computer. You can now listen to the audio from your computer over both USB headphones.

    Hi, I think we must have slightly different computers or Windows versions? If I go to the control panel it gives me "Hardware and Sound" then I have "Sound" with sub settings "Adjust System Volume" , "change system sounds" , "manage audio devices" and if I go to "Sound" I do not see what you are talking about. Would you be able to look at this screenshot?
