Hey guys, I have a sound card installed and its currently occupied by my speaker. How can I use it for my headphone together instead of plugging into the speaker's crappy port? Does dual mini extender affect the audio quality?

Note that my machine is placed under the desk so even with headphone it's hard and troublesome to plug and unplug all the time, not to mention the insufficient cable length (probably an extender will help but you should get my point..

Thanks!
 
You can split the output as you suggest. Most likely you won't hear any difference. You can position the splitter where is would be convenient to plug in your phones. From a technical viewpoint turning the speakers down rather than turning them off would be better.
