That's the wrong one. You have it in reverse. Instead of having a microphone and headphone male and a line in female, you need a headphones and microphone female, and a line in male.

The headset cable has 1 jack, an audio and mic combo. He's looking to split it into separate jacks.

The headset he posted has two 3.5mm jacks, one for mic and one for headphones. 

 

 

He needs something to combine the two and to be able to use it on a PC with no 3.5mm combo jack. Hence the link I posted of the 3.5mm to USB converter.  I got mine today and it works great.

Uhhhhhhh no I am staring at a pair of the darn things. There is no magic hybrid jack. The is a male headphone and microphone jack. What I think if going on is his friends laptop does not have a microphone jack. He is looking for a something to make a headphone jack and turn it into a female microphone AND headphone jack.....which is impossible. You need some type of USB device to do such a thing. I am recommending something with an actual sound card in it, and darkcyde is recommending a plane adapter.

Now unless the OP's friend got a really bizzaro edition of the V2s, then he needs a USB adapter. smile.gif
