Default Simple Question - Complex Answer? (Audio Input/Output)

Is there a way to turn my microphone input jack into an output jack that my headphones can plug into? I ask this because I am pretty sure my headphone jack came loose from its board, but I'd much rather still have headphones than be able to use a microphone.

Yes, and you could also use a mic as a speaker. They both use the same principle to create or record sound.

Yes you can. It all depends if your audio control panel can handle 6CH and can turn your microphone jack to an actual speaker. Actually, you should use Line in...because the microphone is Center and subwoofer. One will work, and the other, not.

I am able to do this to only 1 PC. It's neat.
