    My pc won’t detect my headset mic.


    My pc only recognizes my headset mic as headphones in output. I turned on my microphone settings and checked sound settings and tried manage input devices and it won’t show up. I even tried control panel and it says my microphone isn’t plugged in. When my headset mic is plugged in the headphones port it only shows the headset mic as output and no mic input. When my headset mic is plugged in the microphone port it, the mic works and is in input but can’t hear in the headset and isn’t in the output anymore.

    Laptop won't detect built-in mic on headsets/earbuds

    I'm running Windows 10 home on a Lenovo Ideapad laptop, and it doesn't detect the mic on any of my headsets/earbuds. I can hear playback fine on my headsets/earbuds, but it can't speak through them, since it insists on using the laptop's internal mic. This results in my typing/mouse clicks all being captured on audio.

    • In sound properties recording tab, I just see "microphone (Realtek high def audio)" and "stereo mix (Realtek high def audio)"
    • In sound properties playback tab, I just see "speakers (Realtek high def audio)", yet I hear audio fine on my headsets/earbuds?
    • In device manager, it doesn't detect a headset either, displays the same list as the recording tab
    So do all 3 of my headsets/earbuds have some kind of "plug and play but stays invisible to the OS" feature? One of them is the default Apple earbuds, I'm 100% sure there's a mic on there and these are brand new, so they aren't broken. Are these not supposed to appear as a "headset" device with the headset icon in sound properties?

    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.

    HeadSet and mic not being detected in sound

    I messed with the levels, but when the headset is plugged in, I don't see an additional mic in the listing, only the default mic is showing.
