When setting up a pair of headphones or speakers with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) or other audio applications, you typically insert the audio plug connected to the speakers into a compatible port on the computer. You can also use the USB port, but you must convert the audio signal streaming through the USB port into the headset using a mono audio adaptor.
