If your headphones have a single plug you cannot plug these into a regular speaker connection or headphone connction and get mic and sound, you will need a headset that has 2 separate plugs (one for Mic and one for headphone) or a splitter you can get a radio shack. Most headsets have only one plug and there are connections for both the mic and the headphones on this plug, but the headphone connection on the computer has only connections for the headphone and therefore cannot detect the microphone.

Why does my headphone audio get heard through my microphone?


Hi Matthew

I trust you are well.

Have you tried to plug your headset into the rear ports of your PC and not the front. If you have speakers in the rear and headset in the front try to swop the two around and see what happens.

Hope this helps

Kind regards

Make sure the headphone mic is plugged in and detected in the sound setup.

The buzzing noise is usually cause by the USB power connector, try a different port.

There is a screeching sound coming from acer aspire 4738Z we can hear our own voice when the headphones are put on and when we take the headphones off the sound starts coming again sometimes it stops on...


LOL you hear feedback noise, it's feedback! Go into the sound settings and in the mixer for audio output, mute MIC. (the built-in microphone for webcam conferencing, evidently.) Don't worry that it will keep you from using the mic (pron. 'mike') in the input mixer, because that's a whole other section of the 'board'.

It could of course also be some other app doing the ill-filtered mixing, but see the mixer settings first.

My sound settings are all the way up and I can barely hear any sound...please help...


Double check that both the master and wave volume is up higher- if that does not help, use a pair of headphones to see if it is the speakers failing- if the speakers are failing, you can use the headphone jack in the meantime- and contact your laptop's manufacturer for a repair.

How do i get the mic to work on my laptop. I can hear people but they cannot hear me when i use the skype programme.


Hi Grace,
IN Skype I would recommend you do a "test" call..(You can find how to make a test call under: Tools -> Options -> Audio settings) You'll see a link at the bottom that says: "Make a test call". In the same "Audio settings" page of Skype you'll see your audio devices. Make sure you have the right microphone selected. If it's properly connected and selected, when you are in this page and you talk into you mic, the little horizontal bar under the Mic selection should light up each time you make a noise.
Hope this helps. Ed PS: bare in mind that laptops such as the Toshiba Satellite A105 doesn't have a built in mic and you need to buy one separately and plug it in into the mic jack.

Be sure that your headphone mic plug jack is plugged in to the mic jack (right-most jack) and not the second headphone jack. If so, check your sound setting in Control Panel and make sure the mic is enabled and the volume slider for it is up.

First Right click on the sound Icon besides your clock on the bottom right hand side of your screen. Click on sounds. Then on the Playback Tab you should see: ""Internal Speaker/Headphones"".Click On Properties and then On the Tab that says levels. Then just Simply adjust the volume.

Thank You!!!!!!!!!!

Headphones with mic / external speakers


Does your computer have front audio ports? If so, you can just plug it in there. Otherwise you need a single male 2 dual female converter to plug into the speaker port.
