How to use one headset with PC and console with elgato capture card same time?

I want to be able to hear my Nintendo switch and PC audio from the same headset. I was able to make both the PC and Nintendo switch by plugin a USB audio device into the switch which i ran a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable from the green port (headphone jack) on the switch to the pc on the pink slot( mic port) which i then enable the PC to hear the mic port which allowed me to hear the switch and pc at the same time but i hear a static sound, Yes i have tried different cable and it didn't work. What should i do

    You are mistaken. You must use a low level Line In port on the PC (Blue or some other color) and reduce the volume from the Nintendo switch to almost nothing.

    Better is to get a mixer where you can take multiple inputs and multiple outputs, adjust levels.
