Hi,

Sorry for my bad English, I speak French.

I'm about to buy a Sennheiser HD558, and I'll use it for gaming, so I need a microphone. Instead of buying a 40$ AntLion ModMic/V-MODA BoomPro, I'm thinking about using my old headset's microphone. Its a Tritton Kunai, and the microphone is removable and works just fine. This is what the microphone looks like:


Now, how do I connect this to my PC and headphones?
I was thinking about this (Sorry for the Paint drawing):


Will it work?

If it does, I need to find a solid 90 degrees headphone splitter like this:

but with 4 poles.
Where can I find that?

Thanks!

if you dont like two cables, sleeve them together with some cheap cable sleeving.

a headphone splitter is not what you want (a splitter takes one conection and duplicates it). what you would want is a headset adapter (4pole trrs to 2x 3pole trs adapter) such as something like this http://www.amazon.com/SamWay-Stereo-Headset-iPhone-Adapter/dp/B00N1CPZFY/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1447387445&sr=8-6&keywords=4pole+3pole+adapter and you would need an adapter on the other end. if you wanted to go about your way.

however, i would not suggest doing that as you might suffer some audio quality loss using an inferior cable. i would suggest just running the mic line down alongside the headphone and sleeving them. such as http://s1237.photobucket.com/user/josheatspeople/media/IMG_2463.jpg.html
