Headphone/Microphone adapter only outputs sound to 1 earpiece

Hi everyone,

I have a Dell PC with separate microphone and headphone ports, but i use standard Apple earphones for gaming. On my old laptop the headphones doubled as a mic, but understandably this isn't the case on my new PC. I have an adapter that allows me to plug the headphones into both ports, but I only get sound through one ear when I use it.

Is there anyway that I can use the headphones as a mic/headphones and not resort to mono audio?

Thanks Forum!

It's the opposite actually. I have an adapter that plugs into both the mic and headphone inputs, and then I plug my headphones in the adapter.
