    Headphone with built in microphone uses as Microphone, not Headphone


    Okay, so I have an Asus laptop with Windows 10. I am using an Ultimate Ears Headphone with built in microphone. The problem is that i want to use the headphone part, but all the the laptop registers is the microphone. Click image for larger version.

    That is definitely odd.
    Can you right-click on the audio icon in the bottom right-hand side of the taskbar, select Playback Devices, and then disable the speakers, and see if the sound then comes through the headset?

    Another thing: Have you plugged in the headset, and then rebooted the computer? Be sure to turn off Fast Startup when trying this.
