If the computer monitor or TV that you use with your Computer Kit does not have audio capabilities, you can use an external set of speakers or headphones to hear sound from your Computer Kit. These speakers or headphones must use a 3.5mm headphone jack. Speakers and Headphones that connect via Bluetooth or USB are not supported at this time.
The Light Ring isn't compatible with the headphone socket, so we'll show you the steps you need to follow:
Remove Light Ring
The Light Ring uses special software that updates the light colors hundreds of times a second. This actually makes a sound you can hear through your speakers, so we'll need to remove it to use the headphone socket.
Open the lid of the Computer Kit case and carefully lift the Light Ring off of the pins, making sure not to bend any!
From the Dashboard, click on the power button in the bottom left and select Reboot.
Connect the Speakers or Headphones
While your Computer Kit is rebooting, connect your headphones or speakers to the 3.5mm headphone socket next to the HDMI port.
We're almost there! Once your Computer Kit has rebooted, open Settings from the dashboard:
Click Audio and then change TV to Speaker, then click Apply Changes:
That's it! You're ready to use your speakers or headphones with your Computer Kit.
