I bought a Creative sound card fro under 10 pounds, it as two leads, one for normal phones or an amplifier and another for a microphone. It was to replace an internal card that was crackly, and it works fine even plug and play on xpp.

* USB sound cards are small dongles that plug in to a USB port and typically have a headphone port and a microphone port for 1/8" jack connections. On Windows 8 and later most are "plug and play" devices while on Windows 7 and earlier you'll likely have to install a device driver. For examples, and to see how inexpensive they are, have a look at this webpage (and I cannot attest to its accessibility): ( )
* USB headphones are, as you suspected, just like regular headphones but instead of having an 1/8" jack it has a USB connector. These are plugged in to a USB port and behave like typical headphones. These are inexpensive as well. That being said, they're getting somewhat harder to find as wireless bluetooth headsets have become much more popular and are quite inexpensive if you're not looking for audiophile quality sound. If your computer doesn't have Bluetooth built in then you'd need to buy a USB Bluetooth Adapter (see: ( ) ) and these are very inexpensive.


If you think that you can think about a thing, inextricably attached to something else, without thinking of the thing it is attached to, then you have a legal mind.
