I have headphones with a microphone that has 1 output 3.5mm jack. My PC has a separate mic and headphone jack. So I bought a splitter cable off of amazon for like $5 that I plug my headphones into and it splits it. I plug it in and I can hear fine out of it but when I try to speak in discord nobody can hear me. I checked the sound settings and when I talk it doesn't pick up anything. This is the splitter I got https/www.amazon.com/Maeline-Female-Plated-Headphone-Splitter/dp/B00PYZ2BT4/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1502116458&sr=8-5&keywords=3.5mm+y+splitter. Any solutions? Thanks!
The problem is definitely the splitter because when I take the splitter out and plug my headphones straight into the mic jack it picks up sound fine, but if I have the splitter plugged into just the mic jack and my headphones plugged into the splitter no sound picks up is there a way I can fix this?
this is weird but I was fiddling with the splitter and I found out that if I plug the headphone side of the splitter into the mic jack and the headphone side of the splitter into the headphone jack it would register the sound but now I can't hear anything. I was looking in the sound settings and it basically registers both jacks as mics now.
