Y700 15 ISK gaming HEADSET

2019-01-28, 17:43 PM

Hello there,

 

I want to buy hyperx cloud alpha headset (https://www.hyperxgaming.com/us/headsets/cloud-alpha-pro-gaming-headset)

but it comes with single jack only which has mic and headphones on the same plug.

 

My lenovo has only one jack port, but I don't know if it is combo jack or not. Do I need extra connectors or it will run without problems?

Solved! See the solution

Hi,

 

The base spec says it's a combo jack:

manual also says: ( https://static.bhphotovideo.com/lit_files/118773.pdf )

"

• The combo audio jack does not support conventional microphones.

 The recording function might not be supported if third-party headphones or headsets are connected, due to different industry standards. "

 

What does that different industry standards mean?

That's why I'm asking.

AFAIK the below is the pin-out supported by Lenovo's combo audio port.  It works with headphones or headsets, but not with mic-only devices.

 

That said, there may be a few headsets out there that use a different pin-out.  Since this is the layout used by most devices - laptops and others - I'd expect your linked headset to work.  You might confirm that with the headset vendor.
