    Headset's Mic not working when connected to AUX?


    Hello, I have a JBL Live 500BT headset and the microphone works flawlessly when the headset is connected over bluetooth. However, when connecting the headset through AUX with the 3.5mm jack, and confirming it's a headset when asked by Realtek, only the headphones work and Windows claims there is no sound input device. It's not even working if i connect the headset to the PC's a microphone jack and set the device as a microphone device. The AUX cable does have a secondary microphone but that one only works when the headset is connected to a phone. Is it normal that a bluetooth headset's built-in microphone does not work when the AUX cable is used?

    Headset's Mic not working when connected to AUX?

    Yes I have but it's still too low.

    UPDATE:

    So I think I found the culprit. The cable itself I connect the headset with has a low-quality built-in mic as well.
    Connecting the headset with that cable into the microphone aux enables that mic instead of the mic built in the headset.

    I was thinking of buying an aux cable without a built-in mic but I'd then need something like the following which I can't find anywhere.

    Does such a cable actually exist?

    Hello,

    I have a JBL Live 500BT headset and the microphone works flawlessly when the headset is connected over bluetooth.

    However, when connecting the headset through AUX with the 3.5mm jack, and confirming it's a headset when asked by Realtek, only the headphones work and Windows claims there is no sound input device.

    It's not even working if i connect the headset to the PC's a microphone jack and set the device as a microphone device.
