Windows 7: How can I use two seperate headsets w/microphones simultaneously?

How can I use two seperate headsets w/microphones simultaneously?

So, as the title says, I am trying to run two headsets with microphones simultaneously. I am attempting to get me and my girlfriend on a raidcall server so that we may both talk with our friends and be heard and hear them clearly. I use a laptop that is running windows 7 home premium 64 bit. My laptop microphone simply does not cut it in this scenario. If anyone has any advice on this matter, or perhaps an alternate solution to my problem that does not require two microphones, I would love to hear it.

Thank you for you time!

Forget the headsets with the microphone. You can get a Y-cable to allow two headsets in the same output port and for the microphone get one similar to used in broadcasting or churches and position it between you so it will pick up both of your voices. I think a better solution would be two machines logged in at the same time. Or in other words, it's not always best to share everything.

Yeah, I was worried that it simply would not be possible with these two. We would like to have two machines, but due to circumstances we are limited to one. I think the broadcasting.church microphone would be a good idea though, and it is similar to what I did as a temporary fix. I swapped my laptop speakers on, turned the headset speakers off, and left the headset microphone on. Then I turned up the sensitivity of the headset microphone, and I am attempting to use it as a broadcasting/church microphone. Audio quality took a hit, but we can be understood by our friends, and that was our original goal. If anyone knows a way to improve our audio input, that would be much appreciated.

It is indeed possible, i do it myself, but there is a catch, you need to have a usb headset for one device and use the system sound card for the other device, this is all providing the software you're using allows you to have 2 instances of the program running and allow you to select different audio inputs and outputs, for example, you can use skype with a usb headset(own soundcard built in) and your girlfriend can have teamspeak running with the system soundcard(standard audio jack headset) to have 2 independent audio streams for both input and output for conferencing.
