Hii..

I have a Logitech Z623 speakers for my computer and another Logitech G430 headphones, i connect the headphones using AUX not the USB with them, because the sound quality with the Logitech Software is horrible, my Z623 speakers connects to my pc with a 3.5mm AUX, so now i have a problem that i need to disconnect the headphones to use the surround speakers, i saw a converter from AUX to Type C on Amazon and multiple local shops, will my pc recognize the Surround Speakers if i connect them with this converter and also keep my headphones connected? Is there any other solution i can use to have both systems connected and just shift between them in a click in sound tab?

Thanks

Best thing to get is a gaming DAC/amp with a headset connection and a line out on it for the speakers, like this https://www.amazon.com/Creative-Blaster-External-Nintendo-GameVoice/dp/B018JUPY3A/ref=asc_df_B081ZN9K2M/?tag=&linkCode=df0&hvadid=416769961145&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=7235401984594372612&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9001809&hvtargid=pla-892159850849&ref=&adgrpid=94693386955&th=1 or https://www.schiit.com/products/fulla-1

If you have not tried the front jacks on the case, do that, when you connect the headphones they should simply stop the output to the speakers. If you use one of the DACs with headphone and line out/variable out ports you won't need to unplug things since the outputs will work all the time together. I have my headphones and speakers on a FX-Audio DAC 6 but I use a USB mic not one from the headset.

Yes it will be run he Z623's but since USB audio adapters are actually their own sound device they don't work like normal and most don't have a separate headphone jack..

Have you tried plugging the headphones into the front panel headphone jack and leaving eh Z623's plugged into the rear?

I will try the front panel jacks which i really don't prefer since my case is a chinese brand and i don't trust the quality of the connection to some extent..

This is the converter am trying to buy from a local store to make the Z623 work..

Those are usually for cell phones that have an audio path out of their usbc ports, like apple does with their lightning jacks.
You may have audio over your USB, might be worth trying if he shop will let you try it or return it.

Well i have tried the front jacks for my headset, and they actually suck big time, very much echo in Discord calls, and i have tried everything to solve the issue with no hope, so yeah, it seems am buying in the link above.

I don't want to connect and use the front jacks because cables looks ugly with the whole setup, i like to keep things tidy and with a lot of cable management.

Thanks
