Using XBOX One headset on PC - Mic not working!!! HELP!!!

I have a pair of Turtle Beach Earforce XO One headset for xbox one.

 

I started playing pc games, and I use it for PC - it works fine to listen to audio, but now I have a need for the Mic and it's not working.

 

I realize that maybe it may never work because the headset is plugged into the audio jack. There is no other cord for the "mic in" jack - is this correct? So the microphone will not work?

 

I am having an issue having windows recognize the microphone on the headset that is plugged into the audio jack.

 

Not sure what to do - I've literally tried everything in the control panel>sound, and windows>settings>privacy>microphone, and device manager menus. (PHOTOS BELOW)

 

ALSO - You see below the asus realtek HD audio manager --- this pops up when i plug the headset into the audio jack... 

 

I don't know if I have to download drivers... or what..... I can't find drivers for it.

 

PLEASE HELP and I will get you a gift card or something!!!

the jacks are 2 separate ports because they're wired to only accept one signal. A workaround I've managed is plug an xbox one controller into the pc, then use the headset. The controller is wired for mic and audio.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I appreciate it but that's not practical. 

 

Are there any other work-arounds?

get a splitter cable to both. Although, not sure how it's not practical since it simply uses usb micro.

Not wrong but not right. Depending on the audio driver a single jack can read a device as a headset with mic rather than just a headset or mic.

One important thing to note is that realtek has issues reading a headset combo over jack in windows 10.

@fasauceome if it were as simple as using a micro usb then maybe but having to "rig" the xbox controller just to use the microphone/headset combo in my eyes is impractical. 

 

practical in my eyes is finding a permanent software solution without having to rig extra hardware or buy a splitter.

 

it's 2018 and there are devices with one single 3.5mm combo plug - a brand new z270 chipset mobo is not one of them? 

 

@KingArchlich I tried downloading drivers for the same manufacturer's other hardware, a pc version headset - but it would not read my headset input in order to install.

 

I tried "Spatial Sound" options - Windows Sonic / Dolby Atmos for headphones - thinking this install would maybe be a solution because Xbox uses it - but it did not really change anything beside the sound quality output of the pc. 

 

I agree Realtek appears to be the issue - I just know there has to be a solution like drivers that can read the mic/headset over one 3.5mm audio jack. If anyone can find a solution like this THAT WORKS - I will gift a $20 giftcard.
