How To Use Audio Combo Jack

Omen Laptop 15t
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want to use my headphones for sound only and use the internal microphone for speaking, but my computer (Omen Laptop 15t) has a combo jack. How do I make it recognize my headphones as only headphones and not as a microphone also?

How To Use Audio Combo Jack

Hey there! @David_Mu, Welcome to HP forums.


I understand that you only want headphones to be recognized by your laptop.


As you mentioned that your laptop has a combo jack. Make sure you would only connect headphone jack into the laptop. 

Do not plug the microphone jack into your PC.  Then listen to the headphone and use the internal microphone to talk.


If you have a headphone with built-in microphone.

You can right click the speaker icon on the taskbar and select playback devices.

And select internal microphone as the default device. Save and exit.



Let me know if this works!

Cheers! :)
