    I change my audio between speakers and headphone a lot. What I want to do is get a 3.5mm audio jack splitter (the one that has two females and one male) and just have them both plugged in at all times, however I have a few questions. Will the quality decrease? Will I need an amp? and Will a splitter damage audio hardware (I'm using my only motherboard jack) ? Thanks in advance.

    Don't think the quality is gonna be reduced, but the max volume on your headset will properly take a hit.

    As long as it's of semi decent quality then audio quality should be relatively unaffected. I wouldn't expect a volume drop but it is possible.

    Is there any chance that I can damage the audio hardware on my motherboard?
