Hello,
So i am really annoyed right now.I just built my pc and i can't use my microphone because my earphones have a single jack while my pc have 2 jack.I was told to buy a splitter cable.
There were none in my country so i had to buy online and wait for 2 months now that i received it it doesn't even work!

Now i looked for threads on the internet and none helped me all asked to contact the earphones owner and ask for the required splitter cable.But nope you see not everyone have expensive earphones.I am poor i use cheap 1,2 dollars earphones so there is no company i can really contact.So i just don't wanna lose my time with these cables.

Would this work?
And if yes will it creates any problem because it is written "7.1"

Thanks
Sorry if i was disrespectful i'm just a bit angry.

As i said they are 1,2 dollars earphones.They are unbranded.Yes i tried to interchange.
" also what you audio panel show for the headphones and mic do they are both active"
I do not understand what you mean here.
But i went into the playback devices panel and checked the microphone and also enabled the "listen to this device" but i can't hear anything so it doesn't work.
