I have Bose Q15 headphones that have a microphone. When I plug them in my iPhone or in my Macbook the mic works fine.
My PC has separate inputs for audio and mic. I purchased a Startech MUYHSFmm mm 3.5 mm 4 Pin to 2X3 Pin 3.5 mm Headset Splitter thinking it would make it work but it does not.
I get sound but I can't get the mic to work. When I try to setup the microphone using Windows's "Setup a microphone", it does not work.
The driver is ASUS Realtek Audio HD. I was able to tell the Realtek software that the device I plugged in the mic input is a mic. But I can't get it to work.
Did I buy the right thing? Is it a software issue?
Note that I have successfully used USB microphones on this PC but I never tried to use the 3.5mm jacks before.
