    yeah so basically i bought a gaming headset with two 3.5mm jacks, the headphones work fine, but i can't get the mic to pick up and sound (it doesn't even recognize its there).

    i didn't some research and found that maybe its cause the input jack isn't pre-amped...so would a simple fix be to buy a mic-to-usb adapter? would that pre-amp it? anyway, any advice would be helpful :)

    A mic to USB adapter will work. It's a line-in jack, not a typical mic-in jack.
