An line-level input, which is what your car's aux in jack is, presents a relatively high impedance to the source - generally 10k ohms. Your 'phones have a much lower impedance, typically 32 ohms for PMP phones. It's possible to distinguish between them in that way.

It sounds like you have three sources - two mics and the computer which is also doing the recording. What you need is a mixer like the PreSonus 4x4 (I don't know of a 3 channel mixer). This will give you control over the sound levels and profile of each source as well as a way to record them all on your computer. I personally have used these in ...
