Headset with single jack would it work or not?

pavilion 17 notebook pc
Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit)

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?

Hi,

 

Welcome to the HP Support forum. Thank you for choosing HP.

 

As most new computers nowadays, you have only 1 3.5 mm jack, so if your headset has 2 pins (1 mic and 1 audio) - they cannot work (and at the same time).

 

Please, check these threads and articles:

You may need to get an adapter like these:

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

 

 

 

Hope this helps :) Happy holidays !
