I need to connect one chat headset (speakers and mic) to 4 different PCs simultaneously so I can hear audio signal coming from either one of those PCs (with volume control) and use my mic to send signal to all of the PCs. I will need a mixer (software or hardware) that I can use to mute/unmute my mic signal on any PC.

Anyone have any suggestions? Best (potential) solution I found is the mixer linked below but it has terrible reviews. Is there a better way to do this? If I plug in 4 USB sound cards to a PC, is there a software i can use to achieve same results?

What is it you're trying to provide, like broadcasting a gaming session?

I don't know of a mixer that would simultaneously receive general inbound audio and output mic feed from you. I don't think multiple sound cards would work since windows can only handle one input or output device at a time. I suggest a quality stereo 4 input mixer to get your inbound audio and maybe use discord for your mic purposes instead.

I need to be on upto 4 meetings at the same time with ability to lower audio from either or all of them and speak on 1 meeting or all at the same time.

I found two diy solutions (active vs passive) that look promising.
