How do you use both headphones and an external microphone with a single combo jack on laptop?

I have a Razer blade stealth 2016, but it has only a single jack for both audio and mic. I have a Bose qc35 which I plug into the jack, but I also want to use a Modmic with it, which requires it to be plugged in to a mic jack.

Does using a splitter sacrifice quality or response times to either the audio or the mic? And is using a splitter the only option?
Thank you.

@richiestang_78 nailed it, a splitter will do the job, however if you have any white noise (a background hiss) with your Blade, you should go for one of the USB adapters. However, we recommend the Syba CM-UAUD over the Sabrent linked above. It simply sounds better for mics.
