RETURN IT. Re-fucking-turn it. That looks like the biggest made-in-china meme on the planet. If you're stuck with it, you need this
But fuck, return it if you can. You get exactly what you pay for when it comes to headphones and headsets.
I don't think you can find that on PCs. You can instead use this adapter to achieve a single port.
for the earphones 3 bands on the 3.5mm male connector or 2? In other words do the headphones have a mic with it? Like for a cell phone? If so you need a 3.5mm adapter to plug that into

For the Displayport - What Video card?
For the holes just check your motherboard manual for what proper ports to use. Normally they're color coded but those "older" motherboards sometimes aren't. You likely don't have a hole that will support the 4 pole cable, so you have to use the extender you linked to, in addition to this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/UGREEN-Headphone-Microphone-Splitter-Headphones-Silver/dp/B00Y4663GG/ref=pd_bxgy_107_img_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=348EKZAFTB5R6AY0F028
Have you attempted to wire them? Would they work with an Audio/Mic Y Splitter (Female to 2 Male)?
Has anyone attempted this with a Audio/Mic Y Splitter (Female to 2 Male)?
So how will voice chat work if I don't buy this headset? Can I just get a splitter (1 female to 2 male) and use any headphones with a mic?

Hey Mach1ne, I have also ascended to the PC recently and bought a headphone splitter since I just use normal inline mic headphones. This particular model has been working pretty well for me; I haven't experienced any issues at all. So I guess you can try troubleshooting your headphone splitter by testing it on another PC to see if it's actually faulty. I was looking at the Startech model as well, but didn't opt for it because of reviews stating similar issues to yours.
Your Dell has separate MIC/Headphone connectors, right?
In that case your "combination" style plug won't work in either without something like this.
I think something like this is exactly what you're looking for. It takes a single 3.5mm TTRS (stereo audio + mono mic) female input and converts it into 2x 3.5mm TRS male cables. One can connect to the mic port and one can connect to the headphone port on your sound card.
It is likely the audio port can't handle a mixed mic and headphone input/output. You may need something like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Y4663GG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
What headphones and mobo/card are you using?
> NOTE: This gaming headphone is not compatible with PS3 and Xbox360, when you use it with desktop personal computer, the headphone and the mic can not work together, either the headphone works or the mic works. USB is only for the LED lights
Normally when headsets use the single headphone jack, you can buy a splitter like this and it'll work on a PC:
I see. You could try something like this. I just looked up "headset splitter". If you get something else, just make sure it has two plugs and each plug has two colored (in the case of that adapter, black) rings.
Edit: fixed link
I don't think there is such a thing which would play audio from two sources, but I understand you right you should be able to spli the microphone from the headphones through a splitter and plug the headphones into the headphone jack and the microphone into the microphone jack on your computer. Unless your sound card just doesn't have a mic jack, then I honestly don't know what to tell you.
If you do have both a headphone and microphone jack, something like this would work to split the two.
Ah ok, thanks a ton. I'll get these later then: https://www.amazon.com/Headphone-Splitter-Separate-Microphone-Aluminum/dp/B00Y4663GG/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1469853059&sr=1-1-spons&keywords=headphone+splitter+mic&psc=1
because the reviews for the one you linked says it inverts left/right sound. :/
I'm in Canada, btw.
I have a basic SMSL dac/amp to use with my PS4 through optical and have enjoyed my 598s + Modmic 5 for gaming for some time now (almost 2 years). Very light and comfortable. However I can't always use open back because the house can get noisy with a baby niece and nephew. I've used a few Hyper X headsets before (still own the original Clouds, sold my Alphas) but was getting bored.
I enjoy the Sennheiser sound so I was looking for something similar to the 598s, but closed . Along came the Cs. They're a tad expensive up here - $180 CAD + 13% tax on Amazon... But I found someone on Kijiji selling theirs for 90 bucks! They were in good condition too. Box was a little beat up, but both cords were intact (1/4 was still wrapped). Here's a comparison from a gaming perspective in CoD WW II:
598s have this smooth sound that's easy to like. Imaging is excellent and soundstage is wide enough to make your head turn around to see where stuff is coming from sometimes.
Gunshots pierce the environment to immerse you without sounding shrill or harsh and the tail end of explosion sound effects with the shrapnel and dirt flying around is very satisfying.
The mids of course are forward, people usually call this "warm", don't they? Sorry I'm not an expert audiophile. Vocal callouts are lively, the rumble of tanks is clear, reload sounds are detailed and very "metallic", the way they should be.
The bass is a bit light. It's there, but I know Sennheiser cans don't emphasize it. Explosions and ordnance are present, but a little more low end wouldn't hurt. I wanna feel like I'm there, not far away from the action.
The Cs are essentially exactly what they sound like... Closed 598s.
Treble sounds similar and has enough detail, just not quite as perfected as the originals.
Mids sound a little more hollow, but just barely. It's not terrible but I expected this.
Bass is improved. Punchier and tighter. This I enjoy. :)
just the right clamping pressure, soft headband, and the unique rubbery cloth earcup material = the most comfortable, best sound isolation closed headphone I've ever tried. Seriously. Beats both the Beyerdynamic Custom One Pros and the Hyper X Alphas WITH HM5 pads on them. They are wonderful.
Here is something to note: the standard 4 foot 3.5mm cable is TRRS and includes a cheap crappy mic on it. Amps usually don't read TRRS plugs very well. When I first tried that cord with 1/4 inch adapter, it sounded like absolute trash! Dollarama earbuds would give it competition.
I plugged in the 10 ft straight 1/4 inch cord from my SEs into the Cs and it fixed the issue. Sounds great now! So, if you plan on using these, don't use the TRRS cable in your amp or PC motherboard. You'll have to get a y splitter like this.
I highly recommend these on sale or used. Not $180 CAD.
TLDR: Cs are basically exactly what you expect, a closed off 598. Different headband and earcups make for a comfortable fit and clamp. Be wary of the TRRS cord in your amps. Worth it on sale or used.
I feel your pain. In the early day’s of configuring my audio setup, it was a ball ache getting everything to work properly and in harmony.
I used a USB>Headset/Mic dongle
My headset had a single 3.5mm jack coming from it, so I bought a 3.5mm jack>dual output (headset/mic) dongle. So that I could split the signal into two separate outputs, I then plugged those into the USB dongle.
UGREEN Headphone Mic Cable, Audio... https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00Y4663GG?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
UGREEN USB Audio Adapter, USB... https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01N905VOY?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
No troubles since. My PC just seems to prefer acknowledging USB audio signals to just having them plugged in.
I also stay clear of the clunky, windows 95 looking bullshit add on that is Realtek audio. It causes more problems that it fixes.
Note: this might not fix your problem and it depends what headset you have.
You would need to use something like this
for connecting it to your pc.
*Face palm* I didn't realize you were plugging both devices into a single port. The front panel on your pc has two types of "auxillary" jacks. You need to purchase this part from amazon to direct the traffic correctly. https://www.amazon.com/UGREEN-Headphone-Splitter-Computer-Smartphone/dp/B00Y4663GG/ref=redir_mobile_desktop?ie=UTF8&aaxitk=YFioWx1KzSCEPyqAFn0-hA&hsa_cr_id=5264763960101&ref_=sb_s_sparkle
*fun fact your microphone jack is constructed differently from the audio jack. one has an extra ring in its design. Both are designed in a similar fashion TRS. Short for Tip, Ring, Sleeve. It's just that one(I don't remember which) has an extra ring.
I just bought one of those 2 days ago because I had a similar issue lol
The splitter I'm using is this
Yep, the amplifier power in a dedicated sound card is superior to most onboard sound chips, so the volume will be increased. Headphones only sound as good as the sound card and source quality (e.g. bitrate). Make sure to configure the bitrate for your sound card to its maximum supported in the sound options as well, just in case.
For the adapter:
> Nvidia Soundcard
Are you referring to HDMI? That's output only, for your monitor.
Or are you referring to the EVGA NU branded sound card?
Connect it directly to the system.
> logitech headset
If it is USB, then it's down to the headset or Windows and not sound drivers which are for 3.5mm analog.
If this is a headphone and microphone combined on a single 3.5mm audio jack, then a Y-Splitter like this is necessary. On the other hand, if using two separate headphone and microphone 3.5mm jacks that need to be a combined into one jack for a laptop, then a Y-Splitter like this is necessary. If already using a Y-Splitter, then perhaps the jacks do not correctly align, and so you would need to find a splitter that is compatible with your jack's pole pattern.
Try reconfiguring default sound devices.
Put it into the PC's 3.5mm jack? Or, if you are using a single combined headphone/microphone jack, then you would need a Y-Splitter for your PC: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Y4663GG/
Headset mic splitter.
PC jacks are typically 3 pole, whereas headphone+mic on the same jack requires 4 pole.
Get a y-splitter: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Y4663GG/
I think you might need a splitter like this.
Generally something like this is used in a case such as this.
Have a look around but here’s one from
Nope, you need a splitter like this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00Y4663GG/
Some laptops have a combo port that they can be used in without the splitter, but I've never seen a desktop use a combo port.
Get a splitter that separates the Mic and headphones. The laptop port likely only reads the headphones and has a separate port for the mic.
Something like this
There are two types of TRRS breakout cables. Between the two types the mic and ground rings are flipped. I had the same issue with the first adapter I bought(https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Y4663GG), the second adapter I tried worked fine for me(https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00PYZ2BT4/).
Does your PC have a mic/headphone combo port? If not you will need one of these https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00Y4663GG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Headphone splitter 2 male to 1 female - might work.amazon
Yeah ended up finding and ordering these, hope it works.
You'll need a audio/mic splitter like this one.
Did you know Amazon will donate a portion of every purchase if you shop by going to smile.amazon.com instead? Over $50,000,000 has been raised for charity - all you need to do is change the URL!

I have this assuming that is what you need.
Will literally do the EXACT same thing
what about this?
Use a jack splitter like this one.
Why not buy one of these? I used the hd598s for gaming and the vmoda boompro mic came with a splitter like this and worked great
Yes, it has one 3.5 mm plug, that on the xbox controller, carries both mic and audio. Also, I found this dongle that people seem to like a little better, any thoughts?
my bose earbuds with in-line mic doesn't work even with a splitter cable (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00Y4663GG/ref=cm_sw_r_fm_api_j5jQybD3Y2RFQ). What is wrong?
edit: my mobo is https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157675
i use this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Y4663GG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
isn't this good?
I had the same problem. This is what I got and it works well. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Y4663GG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
https://shop.turtlebeach.com/us/headsets/recon-50p you can get these but if you have two different connectors for Headsets and Microphones your going to need a PC splitter cable which you can get easily at any store or online https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Y4663GG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I have both of these and people say I sound hella sexy so its worth.
You can use something like this
This is just the first one I found online so I don't know if it's good quality but that is what you're looking for.
This is pretty trivial. You just need a 3.5mm splitter like this, right?
You'll need this and this and this and this.
Or you could buy an X12 headset.
I have the G933 if you want me to test anything feel free to ask, may be returning it soon though.
For what you want, there is a 3.5mm jack on the headset which you could plug directly into your PC, you do not need the wireless functionality for this. I'm listening to music right now from my phone with the wireless dongle unplugged.
You could leave the wireless dongle plugged into your PC, then when you want to go wireless, unplug the 3.5mm jack, and switch from using your PCs sound device to the Logitech G933 transceiver
A few notes:
As others have mentioned, the USB cable is for charging only and does not carry data, if you wanted to operate in cabled only mode with no wireless functionality, you'd need to use the 3.5mm jack on the headset.
Audio from your PC to the headset should work with the included 3.5mm cable, however if you want your microphone to work you'll need an adapter like this one.
To my understanding, the headset does not use any power if you're in wireless off mode and only using the 3.5mm jack, so you will never need to charge the headset unless you use it wirelessly.
Isn't this essentially the same as this?
It appears to do the same thing.
What about this
