My headphones socket on my laptop is busted, and I'm wondering if I can stream all the audio (every sound the PC makes) from my laptop to my Android, so I can use the headphones connected to the phone.

It has to be by USB/Firewire, as my laptop doesn't have Bluetooth...


You would better off getting a pair of USB headphones than streaming it to your phone.


This video may help. It is through Wifi. If you have connected through USB or something else, you can play media files through your handset. There are apps for that. But, since you are asking for every computer sound, guess, you can do that only through WiFi. Hope that Youtube video helps! Thanks! Vote, if you find this helpful. :-)


I've not found a good solution for this to work over USB, but I have gotten it to work over wifi as well, with a much cheaper (free, or $3.99 if you want network compression) option with SoundWire than the Airfoil solution in Mannii88's video.


You can use SoundIt to stream audio from your computer to any other device easily, it's designed specifically for that.

It also lets you control the stream audio volume remotely.

I've made an app called AudioRelay which allows you to do that.
It's mainly used over Wifi but you can use your phone's USB tethering option to create a USB connection.

  • First, download and start the server on your PC
  • Launch the app on your phone
  • Enable USB tethering (there's a shortcut inside the app)
  • Click on the new server entry to start streaming!

You can check this video (2:25) to see the feature in action :)
