Hi guys,

So built a new pc a few weeks ago.
Its all running fine with sound but couldnt use mic.
Tried with my ps4 earbud and a philips earbud.
In sound setting it says not plugged in. Whats exactly wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

I think the question was more along the lines of, "Is it a TRS, TRRS, or TRRRS connector?"

Audio Phone Connector - Wikipedia

If you have a separate microphone input connector, you will need a separate microphone to plug into it, or you could select for microphone input over USB, if you have equipment that supports that.

OK, so the next question is this:
Is your machine one of the few that has a unified microphone and headphone connector, or do you have separate headphone and microphone connectors?

Do you have 2 connectors: 1 for headphones, and 1 for microphone?
or
Do you have 1 connector: headphone and microphone through same connector?

The headset you are looking at uses a USB soundcard midline in the cable, and provides all necessary connectors. You'll be fine with it, as long as you install the required drivers of course.
