I'm trying to use my LifeChat LX 2000 headset with the Yoga 13's combi jack. The LX2000 has separate plugs for mic and headphone. I bought a standard adapter to convert this into the required combi jack, but only the headphones work. The mic is not recognized. I've already uninstalled and reinstalled the conexant driver and replaced the adapter with a new one. No change.
The headset works on other computers with split jacks.
I know that there is the option of USB headsets, but since I already own the LX2000 and would prefer to not block another precious USB slot, I'd prefer using the available combi jack - as that's what the jack should be there for...

Of course checked that. There is no choices of devices. Only one device is available (conexant) wether I have the headset plugged in or not.

Just checked this with another headset with integrated combination plug and this one works. So I assume this is not a Yoga issue.
Still, does anyone got their headset to work using a standard splitter adapter for the combi jack?

Thanks, XMB. This is very helpful information. Can't believe that even such a little item as a headset jack with three contacts has an universal industry standard...
I'll see if I can find an adapter that's wired for Apple standards, although it surprises me that Lenovo would choose the Apple method if most other PC's use another standard.
So can you confirm that the wiring diagram in below link is correct for the Apple vs Nokia wiring?
Is there any documentation in the Yoga technical specs that allows to identify which wiring is used in the machine? I know you mentioned it uses the Apple standard, but it would be nice to know that this is mentioned in some documentation officially.
