Using headphones/headset (single plug) to dual port

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a set of Marley XL headphones and it has 1x male trrs 3.5mm jack (one with 3 bands) and ive spent probably 4 hours a day for the past week to get the mic to work without success in my desktop.


Drivers are up to date

uses realtek which is awful (idk what else to do there)

windows is up to date

pc ports are plugged in

mic works on mobile devices


I purchased a 4 pole socket to 2 x 3.5mm plug splitter to attempt to solve this without luck. Tried every combo with case ports, rear i/o ports you name it. can confirm audio does pass through the splitter.


ask if you need more details, will do what I can.. I imagine theres plenty of people in need of help looking through the web, 


thanks heaps in advance (sorry in a rush and may be unable to reply for approx 8 hours).

Make sure it is Headphone/mic splitter and not just a headphone splitter.
