This is not a software issue but a hardward issue.

If your headphone is Apple compatible (works on an iphone) it use the CTIA 3.5mm Audio Jack format. You PC uses the OMTP (Android format). So you need a converter. 5$ on Amazon !

For everyone who has realtek i have an answer! Go into your search bar, and search Audio Manager, click on it. If you get something like this https://gyazo.com/e51fbeecb9094845682da9741bd85c60 Click on the folder icon on the right and then click on enable popup dialogue... And then OK. Re plug in your headphones and then click on headset when the dialogue pops up. This should enable both the mic and sound! Hope it works for anyone having problems.
