My new headset not recording System Audio Help.

I use Audacity and I would use WASAPI and did not need Stereo Mix enabled with my old headset. Now with my new headset I have to use Stereo Mix, WASAPI won't work anymore, pretty weird issue to say the least. I installed Asus Realtek Driver 6.0.1.7354 I record in Mono. My mic boost is at +0.0db. I plugged in green jack in headphone port to record system audio and it does not work. I had no issue with my old headset recording system audio. Now I have an issue with this new headset. Any help woukd be appreciated. Here is the new headset I bought from Amazon. If you want to buy this headset for yourselves I highly recommend them, they sound great and mic picks up sound really well.

If you want to RECORD you use the PINK mic jack for the microphone part of the headset. The GREEN Jack is the Speaker out (for connecting a headset or speakers).

A computer mic requires +5VDC to operate. Only the PINK mic jack has the +5VDC on the "Ring" connection.

FireBerd I already know to plug pink jack in mic port. I know to plug green jack in headphone port. That is what I did and the headset still would not record system audio. What am I doing wrong? Please Help me troubleshoot this issue.

The apparent language translation caused me to not realize you were plugging into the correct jacks.

Have you tried the new mic on a different PC? If not, that is the first thing to do since this is a new headset/mic.

Now there is another issue. WASAPI does not work with this headset. So now I have to use Stereo Mix to record system audio. My new headset works with stereo mix, it does record system audio now with stereo mix but the problem is the system audio stereo mix recording volume is way too loud, I can't hear myself in the recording because the system audio recording volume is too high. I tried to turn the recording volume down for stereo mix but I still, my voice sounds almost muted. What is the problem here? Am I doing something wrong?

Stereo Mix, at least on my Realtek, has a level control. Check yours.
Here is my Stereo Mix
