    How to use the built-in laptop mic instead of earphones' mic?


    Hello, I am currently using a laptop with a dual audio port (one for audio output and one for audio input - microphone). Last week I bought the HyperX Cloud Earbuds, its mic worked perfectly on my mobile phone but didn't work as well on the laptop. I bought a audio splitting cord/adapter but the quality was still far from itself on the mobile phone. I guess the Earbuds is just not entirely compatible with PC.


    For the reasons above, I would like to know if there is a way to use the laptop's built-in microphone instead of earbuds, because I still want to listen to the sound from the earphones but its mic is just not very usable. I got into the Settings but at the Input section I can only see one option which is "Microphone (Realtek(R) Audio)". I looked up for solutions on the internet as well but so far none of them worked.

    :)

  3. Mic in earphones issue

    Hello,

    I have a Dell Inspiron 7567 gaming laptop. I have issues with external mic or mic in earphones or headsets. They used to work perfectly fine about till previous month or two.. I don't know what happened, now windows doesn't detected them.. Whenever i connect
    any of my earphones with mic, which used to work perfectly with my laptop, the playback device is detected but the recording device isn't.. The Waves pop up appears where there no mic device listed.. neither in the windows sound settings.. Laptop's internal
    mic works fine.. But doesn't detect external mic.. it appears as if i have not connected any mic..

  4. How to use the built-in laptop mic instead of earphones' mic?

    How to use both built-in Microphone and earphones (Earphones do not have mic) at the same time?

    Config: Acer F15 Laptop Windows 10.

    My built in desktop Mic works perfect and so do earphones separately.

    My earphones do not have mic so I want to use built in desktop mic while plugging my earphones but mic do not detect any sound..

    My friend uses lenovo, and built in/desktop mic detects sound when I connect same earphones.(On windows 10)

    How do I enable or use both at same time ? Couldn't find resolution on net.
