    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.

    Microphone headphone confusion

    Headphones, microphone issue.

    The device is the default and I have updated the drivers. They say they are up to date. I'll answer your questions below.

    • Are you getting any error message?
      • No error messages.
    • When did the issue start? It started last month sometime.
      • It goes in and out of doing what I want it to.
    • Were there any recent changes made prior to the issue?
      • No changes were made.
    • Have you tried using a different headphone to isolate the issue?
      • Yes.
    • What troubleshooting steps have you d so far?
      • I have tried updating drivers, setting defaults, uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, changing headphones, turning off the microphone, changing the settings in Realtek Manager.

    I've tried a lot of stuff without any luck. I'm not sure what the issue is.
