How To Use Headphone Microphone Combo Jack?
New laptops are equipped with a single jack, 3.5mm 4-position (4pin) audio port that supports both audio input/output.
The adapter has two 3.5mm 3-position ports. These ports provide separate microphone and headphone connections that can be connected directly to the single audio port of your laptop.
Connect the headphone plug to the output port marked by the headphone symbol. The microphone plug can then be connected to the audio input port marked by the microphone symbol. You’re done! Plug the adapter into your laptop’s audio jack.
Connectivity to Microphones and Powered Speakers
The adapter can be used to connect your microphone and powered speakers directly to your laptop. Plug your microphone into your input port marked by the microphone symbol.
Then plug your powered speakers into your audio output port marked using the headphone symbol. Finally, connect the adapter with the audio jack of your laptop.
You can either keep the adapter with your tablet or put it in a case. It is compatible with smartphones and tablets that only have one audio port. Connect your device and microphone to the adapter, and you can start talking.
This adapter does not function as a splitter or Y cable for headphones. This adapter cannot be used for splitting the audio output into two sets of speakers or headphones.
Some external microphones will not work on some mobile devices and laptops. This is usually caused by an impedance mismatch of the microphone and device. This is caused by hardware incompatibility and not a limitation of the adapter.
Integrating using headphones as a microphone is convenient for technology users. However, the connection of 2 functions at the same time can reduce the function instead of using 1 independent function.
