I am running a hp pavilion dv6 with windows 7 and i am wondering if i can use my apple earbuds as a mic instead of using my pc's integrated mic. I bought a female 3.5mm adapted to 2 a mic and headphone connector. When i plug this is it wont recognize my headphones as a mic but i can hear audio(from the right ear only) im wondering if its a wrong adapter or if its my laptop since it uses IDT instead of RealTek and it has 3 female 3.5mm ports( 2 headphone ports and 1 mic port).. Please help
According to some users of these Apple earpods, it does work with laptop either as a Mic or a Headphone but it only works 1 at a time. If your laptop uses 2 3.5mm port that means you can use it as a Mic only and you'll need to set it as the default Microphone.
