    Headphone with built in microphone uses as Microphone, not Headphone


    Okay, so I have an Asus laptop with Windows 10. I am using an Ultimate Ears Headphone with built in microphone. The problem is that i want to use the headphone part, but all the the laptop registers is the microphone.

  2. Associate a pair of headphones with a microphone

    I have a pair of headphones with a microphone built in.

    Now, my computer has 2 3.5 mm jacks, so I plugged mine into the first one (labeled without microphone). When I did that, the microphone was not recognized. So, I moved my jack to the second port. When I did that, my computer said that the headphones were
    unplugged. But the microphone worked. When I moved the jack again, the computer said that my microphone was unplugged and my headphones worked. How do I make it so that I can use both my headphones and the built in microphone at the same time?

  3. contana. what can I use for mic. I have lifecam1.4 in comp .no mic in pc 5yrs old

    Hello Terrence! Many things can be used as a microphone on a Windows PC. Any USB microphone, headphones with a built in microphone (as long as you put it in the correct spot. Look for the society with a pink plastic ring around it and a microphone icon
    under it.

    I hope I could be of assistance!

    That is definitely odd.
    Can you right-click on the audio icon in the bottom right-hand side of the taskbar, select Playback Devices, and then disable the speakers, and see if the sound then comes through the headset?

    Another thing: Have you plugged in the headset, and then rebooted the computer? Be sure to turn off Fast Startup when trying this.
