The mic is on the earbuds. I have posted a link to the model in my post. My computer is a desktop, and I am plugging them into the tower, into the front panel.
Along with the test tones, do you hear audio when you play some other music?
Yes, that is what I normally use them for.
Can you hear the mic with your speakers?
No, there is no sound, no noticeable "response" when I speak into the mic.
Usually the System Mixer (could be called Stereo Mix) is set as the default audio recording device. Then any input such as a mic or line will be heard. You also need the System Mixer if you want to record streaming audio from the internet.
I want to record my voice, from my mic. Are you saying the Stereo Mix needs to be default, and not my headset?
I would try it, but actually now when I plug them in they aren't showing up under the Recording tab. I don't know why this is, seeing as they were showing up earlier.
