I purchased a pair of Sennheiser Game Zeros and i have a ASUS Gl502VT. I had to buy a splitter adapter since my laptop only has one 3.5mm jack port. I cant configure my mic to use it because it uses my laptop mic instead. I don't know how to fix it and when i try to hear myself in steam, its sounds so bad.

Please help, thanks
 
It sounds like the jack you are trying to use either is output only, rather than input/output which is what you would need, or it isn't registering the headset correctly. Both are really common.

The simplest fix is to get a dual (since you said your headset has two) 3.5mm to USB adapter. The computer should then recognize the microphone when it is connected, and stop using the internal mic.
