Windows 10: Headset Issue

    Headset Issue

    I'm having issues with Windows 10 recognizing my headset. I've attached a few images of what I am seeing.

    The headset model is a Sennheiser Game One. The sound works perfectly fine but the only mic showing is the built in. I've tried disabling, updating, removing, etc. and nothing seems to work.

    Has anyone experienced this? Is there a driver or controller I can download?

    Also, the headset is plugged into a Y cable.

    Why is it into a Y-Cable?

    Plug the headset plug to the speaker out, or headphone jack of the system, and the mic plug to the microphone jack as well, then retry it.

    Thanks for the response, and I would do that but my PC has a combo jack. It does not have a separate jack for Mic/Speaker.
