Hi, I have front panel audio connections on my desktop and there are two, one for line in and one for line out. I have Beats headphones that have a microphone on them and I'm wondering if I can use the microphone and headphone functionality at the same time. I am able to do this on my Apple devices. Also, can I use the volume buttons to change the volume in Windows 7? I've tried and it didn't work but is there a driver or hack? This isn't as big of a concern though.

Thanks!

This would be very difficult unless your system had the beats audio system installed. I can tell you right away that the volume controls will not work. In order to use the mic you will need to buy this...

Hmm, that's too bad. But thanks to both of you! It doesn't have Beats built in. I might get one of those adapters at some point.
