It's a standard 3.5mm connector. Lol. Of course. It'd look ridiculous, and you'd have to have your face hovering over you PC for anyone to hear you, but yes.

yes, the mic and audio are separated, so you can use both individually.

^^^ If the mic has its own cable, it should work on any standard 3.5mm mic-in or mic/headphone combo port (latter are usually on phones and laptops).

I already have a splitter, so I guess I can get it to work?
