I have a retina MBP. There is only one headphone jack, which allows for headphones with built in mics (like the apple iphone headphones) to be plugged in and used along with the microphone.

This works on OSX, I can switch to the mic in the headset and use it.

But in Windows, the mic does not show up in my recording devices list, therefore it cannot be used.

I've already tried to see whether my drivers are up to date, and have re installed the BootCamp drivers as well. The mic will just not show up as a device.

Does anyone know a solution to this problem?

The headphone device is: Cirrus Logic CS4206B (AB 40)

same problem here. any success with this ? – Bart Calixto Dec 12 '13 at 2:23

apologise, I meant this for a differnt post. It MAY be of use though: I have found a way to make it work... at times.

this seems to work, though earlier it seemed to only work once and need re doing with a restart if you pull your headphones out. Like I said, it is just working like normal this time though.

1) plug your headphones into the normal socket hole. 2) Open sound from control panel. (I just start typing sound on Cortana or when I've opened the start menu up) 3) Right click on the 'headphones' tab thing 4)click on 'set as default device'

You will then hear from your headphones or speakers (I use it for both).
