So it did work for sometime and has stopped working OR it has never worked?

Make and model 3.5 mm headphone/microphone?

Which audio ports are being used on the PC?

Try running the built in Windows troubleshooters. The troubleshooters may find and fix something.

Also right click the small speaker icon normally located in the lower right screen corner. The click should reveal a menu with various audio choices.

Each choice, in turn, leading to any number of windows, tabs, and properties. Explore but do not immediately change anything. Simply make notes about what you find and anything that is unexpected or unknown.

I think that there is a problem with the TRS (Tip, Ring, Sleeve) connections being used.

Mostly because the microphone has never worked and because I see two audio devices in the leftmost audio screen that are showing audio bars.

The microphone being the selected active audio device and the Stereo sound card showing audio as well. And the Sub-Zero AD33 adapter may be allowing some TRS mismatch (if that is indeed the case) to simply pass through. Or adding to the problem in some other way or manner.

The 3.5 mm plug shown in the second image (Amazon Link) of the headphone appears to be TRRS.

In other words the audio connections (Tip,Ring, Sleeve and Tip, Ring, Ring, Sleeve) within your computer, headphones, cables, and adapter are even more likely to be mismatched.

Read the link carefully and map out the TRS/TRRS connections being used by your audio components and devices. Include all cables and adapters.

The mismatch(s) could be in plugs, jacks, and/or standards.

far as I understand I am using TRRS plug headphone which I have same trrs jack sony one too that one microphone is not working on pc.
And my splitter is TRRS/Stereo Mic which I plug them front panel. (I used back panel too) which microphone did not work.

so should I buy headset instead of headphone ?

or I can use my headphone with audio splitter attached to microphone socket and headset socket on computer.
working in both parts beacuse with other computer which my friends using it work.

Headphones = no included microphone and require a separate microphone for audio.

Headset = has an included microphone but may have two plugs. One plug for audio out and one plug for audio in. May or may not include some adapter to divide a single headset plug into two plugs. One for audio out and one for audio in.

For the most part you will need to rely on product information and testing via headphones/headsets borrowed from family and friends.

FYI:

Note in the diagram linked above that the onboard microphone is disabled when a headset is connected.

That may or may not be happening with the audio connections that you are trying to use.

You mentioned Sony - I do not know if a Sony product will work for sure or not.

Google "headphone headset jack wiring diagram" and limit the search to the last year or so.

Look for diagrams and pin outs. Pay attention to the standards.

Get a sense of how your headphones and microphone need to be connected. The diagrams should help.

Objective being to first determine why your audio connections (input and output) are not working as expected. The second objective being to determine the specific audio connections that will or will not work. An adapter may or may not be needed. And maybe not even a headset.

Details matter.
