One of my friends has problems with the 3.5mm audio jacks on the front of his PC. He's not technical enough to look into fixing those and what that implies. With lockdown all over the place, it's hard to go to a specialised shop right now, so we want an alternative to make this work.
The audio jacks on the back of the case work well, but the headphones cable is not long enough to allow to sit comfortably at the desk. I would like something like a little hub (mc+headphones) he could connect to the back of his PC and leverage those ports via this extension.
We looked at a few things but some were not what we were after:
Desktop adapter for specific desks with the round hole cutouts This one only works if you have those corner holes in your desktop, so not great a great fit.
Front Panel The person can't be trusted to open the case and install this since they have no experience with this.
USB to 3.5 mm not really excited about, they are usually short and the 1 working front USB port is used for other stuff.
Creative Sound - Desktop audio control module Something like this module would be nice, but without the entire card since opening the case is not an option.
I have one of these hubs on my keyboard, but his keyboard does not have one, unfortunately.
