How do I connect a combo jack headphone to a double jack computer?

Red Panda

Jun 16, 2015
I am wanting to buy a new computer, an ASUS ROG G751JL-DS71 specifically, in the specs for said laptop it says it has a double jack, one for the headphones, and one for the microphone. My issue is as follows, I have a combo jack on my headphones, meaning that it has a microphone and a headphone connected to it(one cable), is there a way in which I can connect my headphones into the jacks on the computer and still be able to use the microphone and the headphones(using only one jack on the computer)? Or would I need to get a different device for that? Thanks
