Have one headset but multiple devices – Kensington’s Universal 3-in-1 Pro Audio Headset Switch enables you to leverage your headset across multiple devices with the push of a button while also providing features like a large mute button, channel isolation, and much more.

Not being able to connect to multiple devices with one headset is a major frustration for professionals who use a headset for work. Professionals working in the office, or at home need to switch between audio on their laptops, phones, or other devices. 

If you are one of the more than half of working professionals whose job requires the use of headsets for any part of the day, you understand this issue. Whether it's taking a video call, making a phone call, or listening to music, switching between different devices can be complex and time-consuming. 

At Kensington, our passion is enabling professionals to get the most out of their technology. When we noticed that no solution to this problem existed, we developed an audio switch that enables professionals to use a single wired or wireless headset across three separate audio sources. Users can switch seamlessly between their laptop, phone, or tablet, enhancing their productivity. 

The latest addition to our audio line of Professional Video Conferencing solutions, the audio switch features convenient push-button controls for device switching, volume control, and muting to deliver a professional audio experience.

Simple, it enables you to connect one headset to three devices with one central point of control. 

It features three-channel device connectivity, including one for wired devices (USB-A or USB-C) and two channels for Bluetooth devices.

Thanks to the LED display, you’ll know what channel you are on at all times, if you are muted and how your headset is connected. A green LED indicates a wired connection and blue LED indicates a Bluetooth device is connected. It's just that easy!

The device's USB-C to USB-A cable connects to the USB-C port in the rear of the device, providing both power and audio to the Kensington audio switch. The audio source offers three channels, including one USB-C and two Bluetooth channels.

Connect Channel 1 to your Notebook, PC, or MacBook, and power the device while remaining connected. Connect your PC, phones, and tablets to Channels 2 and 3 and enjoy 3-in-1 headset connectivity.
