Can I use an USB-C to Audio 3.5 mm adapter?

HP Recommended

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a new HP laptop (model: 15-dw0088ca). Can I use the adaptor below with its USB-C head plugged into the USB-C port of the computer and my headphones or loudspeakers plugged into the other end (the 3.5 mm one) of the cable?

 

Do I need special drivers?

 

"The USB-C to 3.5 mm Headphone Jack Adapter lets you connect devices that use a standard 3.5 mm audio plug — like headphones or speakers — to your USB-C devices.

In theory this should work but why you have to use USB-C port when it has 1 prise combinée casque/microphone port. Its specs

Banhien, 

 

You say that "in theory this should work but why you have to use USB-C port when it has 1 prise combinée casque/microphone port. Its specs"

 

1) From you answer I understand that the USB-C audio and the "1 prise combinée casque/microphone" of the HP laptop can not work in parallel. I have to somehow select one of them? How can I do it? I guess there should be some settings in "Sounds" that have to be made.

 

2) It would be helpful to have two audio ports because I can plug the loudspeakers in one and the headphones in the other and then, if this is possible, just select one of the two devices (headphones or external speakers) without plugging and unplugging them all the time.
