Can I Convert My Computer Jack Speakers to USB?

By Greyson Ferguson

Most computer speakers directly connect to an audio-out connection port. This is either located at the rear of a desktop computer or on the side of a laptop. However, if you are already using the lone audio-out port, you may want to convert the current computer-jack speakers into a USB connection. This is done with the help of an audio-out-to-USB connection adapter.

Step 1

Insert the USB end of the adapter into one of the USB ports on the computer (it does not matter which port you use).

Step 2

Plug the speakers into the "Audio-Out" jack, located on the end of the USB adapter you just inserted.

Step 3

Connect the speakers to a power outlet, and turn the speakers on.

Play a file on the computer that requires audio. The audio will now play through the connected computer speakers.
