Windows 7: How do i use both headphones and speakers at the same time?

How do i use both headphones and speakers at the same time?

I want to use both headphone and speaker at the same time. Like, the same audio comes from both of them. I want to use this so i can combine my speakers with the TV ( the one i use as monitor ) speakers to work as the 5.1 central speaker.
I googled it, and i only found results where the users wanted to get rid of that.

If you are using HDMI for the TV, you can only have one default audio playback device. Either the HDMI output or your "speakers" (PC sound card) which would allow you to use headphones.

This comes up frequently and I don't recall any posted way to get around this.

if all your jack plugs are 3.5mm, then one of these may be your best option:

they're very cheap and should be easily available.

a usb sound card will do it, i recently bought one for about £5 so i could cue up tracks in virtual dj and still have the main sound come from the speakers. also the usb soundcard has the option for 7.1 channel
