Headphones with microphone problem. (Wrong Section?)

Hello! I just bought a headset with a mic on it so i can talk to friends. The headset is called NK 2000, made by nakamichi. When I bought it, it looked sketchy because it didn't look like a microphone was on it, but it says it has one. It only has one 3.5MM male conecter, so i cant have it in the speakers and the microphone. When its plugged into the speakers, the speakers work just fine. When i plug it into the microphone, the microphone doesnt work. Ill test the mic and it will jump up if i tap the headphones, but wont when i talk. Is there an adapter or spliter i need to plug it into both the mic and speakers? Is this just a piece of crap i need to return? Any help would be awesome. Im also testing the mic in skype. Thanks

  1. hey,

    only one 3,5mm connector means that its only for audio, if it would have a functioning microphone too it would have a second 3,5 mm connector or an usb connector.
    i think it's best if you return it and look for something else.

    does the headset end look like this?

    what you bought might be a headset used for phones if its 4 pole.. in which case it might work if you use a 3.5mm phone headset to pc 3.5mm adapter.

    i found the nk-2000 on amazon and the back of the package specifically says it has a mic and the in line controller can adjust it. see:
