Hello, i'm planning to buy the razer kraken pro very soon, and i was wondering if it would work on my laptop, the headset itself comes with one 3.5mm audio jack, so i was wondering if the audio and microphone would work on my laptop in one jack
i have the HP Pavilion 17 Notebook PC
i also do have this icon next to my audio jack so i guess it supports audio and microphone in one?

Personally, I recommend you seek for a headset with USB connector - it is one connector only for both the audio and the microphone - example:
