Two headphones different sound for each headphones?

Hello,

In my computer i had plugged in two headphones.
One is for my brother, and one is for me.

So sometimes we used to hear speeches,music etc... at same time.

But sometimes i could feel to play football games.

And its sounds will be disturbance for him. So any solution for this?

Different sounds for each headphones?

mishab, welcome to the forums.

What you;re looking to do isn't possible without two sound cards, and then only if the game/program being used has the option in it to use an audio device other than the Windows default.

based on what i understand on the TS's explanation, i think the main reason for the different sounds is because you have two different headphones. unless you have two same headphones (same manufacturer, same model) you wont have problems with it. another scenario would be you and your brother listen to two different things at the same time (which i do not know if its possible) then i could be of no help to you on that. if your problem is the first scenario (your brother prefer this brand of headphone and you prefer another), the output (sound) would really be different because not all manufacturers are the same. unless you have the same brand and model of headphones, it is perfectly normal. if it isn't, please check the headphones first. maybe one is not working properly.

cheers!

The OP wants to play a sports game with sounds, while his brother does not want to listen to those sounds. The only way to do this, is with an additional sound card in the computer. As stated above, the game you are playing must support the selection of the audio output by the user.
