    My headset mic says it is not plugged in


    So a couple of days ago I got noticed my computer was using my webcam mic and not my headset mic, which I thought was strange because it usually defaults to the headset. I checked sound settings and it says that my mic is not plugged in, it even specifies the headphone jack it needs to be plugged, but it is plugged in. The audio works but the mic is not recognized by my computer and I have tried various things to fix it and no luck, and its getting really annoying. How can I fix this problem? I am using Windows 11 with the latest update. I know its not the headset because I tested it on my PS4

    :)

    • When did the issue first occur?
    • Did you already try to use another headset to other devices and check if you are encountering the same issue?
    Regards.

    Headset mic

    Depends on the specs of your hardware, you have not given enough detail.

    PCs are normally separate Headphone and Mic sockets.
    Laptops a Combo socket (TRRS).

    Headsets usually come with adapters to cater for both scenarios.

    My headset has a Combo plug (TRRS), and an adapter for separate Headphones and Mic sockets.

    You can plug the Headset Combo plug in to a Headphone only socket, but the Mic won't work. there is no second R contact.

    My headset mic says it is not plugged in

    Headset mic

    PC Specs will help us help you.

    What is the brand/model of the headset mic combo?

    What front panel audio jack(s) do you have? Some are only mic or only headset, some can be either mic or headset whichever is plugged in and some are combination headset/mic.
