Hello,

I am considering to buy a 3.5mm splitter for my laptop, which only has a single 3.5mm jack that supports both microphone input and sound output. I found this option in a cheap local electronics store:



I have very limited knowledge on sound connectors, but I believe a 3 pin splitter like that should not be able to work properly, a 4 pin splitter would be needed. Can someone confirm or disprove my belief in regards to this?
 
ask them if you buy it can you bring it back if it doesnt work. Its hard to say what jack is in your laptop if its a 3 of 4.

If its a 4 then you have more digging to figure it out. as it could be Left,right,mic,ground or left,right,ground,mic even then most packages dont tell you what each ring does.
