Any way to connect a PS4, a Nintendo Switch, and a PC all to one monitor?

So I've had a PC and monitor for a while now, and recently I decided I want to buy both a PS4 Pro and a Nintendo Switch. However, my monitor only has one HDMI port, and no way to get audio through it. I know I can buy a little HDMI switch thing so I can plug multiple HDMIs into one plug on my monitor, but is there any way I can have my audio come through the same place? I have a USB headset that is currently plugged into my PC, and I know I can just plug it into the PS4 (and I'm not sure if the Switch has a USB audio port), but is there something I could plug my headset into so I don't have to unplug it and plug it into a new system each time I want to switch systems? I won't need to listen to multiple devices at once.

TL;DR:
I want to be able to plug my USB headset into 3 devices at once without having to unplug and replug every time. Is there any way I can do this?

Thanks!

    But would the adapter mess up the quality of the audio. Because I have virtual surround sound headphones and I think they only work through USB

    Well you could get a USB switch but I don't know how well that would work

    So it's the same thing as for the HDMI but for USB?

  7. With my Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma USB Headphones I have audio from my PC, Wii, Wii U and New3DS (and soon to be Switch) all coming through at the same time. If I have multiple outputting sound at the same time it gets a bit crazy, which is why I only have my PC on the desktop with no audio playing and 1 console turned on at the same time. The way that I've done this is fairly complicated, but I'll try to explain it the best I can.

    I have my Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma headphones connected to a USB port on my PC. Using a Musou Wii to HDMI Full HD 1080P Converter I have a 3.5mm cable from my Wii going into one of the input ports of a 3.5mm Stereo Jack 4 Way Splitter Cable, of which the 1 output port plugs into the microphone port of my PC. I have a 3.5mm cable going from my New3DS into another of the input ports of that splitter. I have AV Composite cables coming from my Wii U which are being converted into 3.5mm using a 3.5mm Stereo Plug To Dual RCA Jack Adapter and then being plugged into the 3rd input port of the splitter. I then go onto my PC, into Recording Devices, go to Microphone (not Headset Microphone, the 3.5mm microphone that the splitter is plugged into) and I select 'Listen to this device' through my Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma headphones.

    Basically what this does is it sends all the audio from all of my devices into the microphone port on my PC, and then I listen to the microphone port through my USB headphones.
