How can I configure dual headphones under Windows 7?

Some laptops - in particular my Dell Studio XPS - have two headphone ports.

I have a similar laptop (studio 17), and it has two headphone jacks also. Currently running Vista, I can stream audio to both headphone jacks/devices. Try updated drivers from Dell, especially the IDT Audio Control Panel Driver...I have no problems, and it didn't require any set up...Is your machine an upgrade from Vista?

A Speaker and Headphone Splitter lets you connect two stereo headphones or speakers to the same mini-stereo jack.

Of course, if you're skilled with a soldering iron, you may disconnect the 2nd jack and split the connection of the 1st jack internally. :)"
