How to Use the Microphone on Earbuds

There are times when you need to use a microphone, but you don’t have one available. Did you know that you can actually use your earbuds as a microphone? In this post, we’ll show you how to use the microphone on earbuds.

First, plug your earbuds into the microphone jack on your desktop computer. The microphone jack is usually located at the back of the desktop. Once you’ve plugged in your earbuds, go to the control panel and select “Sound”. From there, click on “Recording” and find your earphones. Right-click on them and choose “Configure speech recognition”. Set up the microphone and select “Headset microphone”. You’ll be prompted to read a sentence aloud, so the computer can detect your microphone.

After this process is complete, you’ll need to adjust the listening level. Right-click on the headphones and go to “Properties”. From there, you can adjust the listening level and select the maximum bit for the microphone.

Now, you’re ready to test your microphone. Go to Google Translator or any other application that uses a microphone, and start speaking. Keep in mind that when you use your earbuds as a microphone, the speaker function will no longer work until you unplug the earbuds.

In summary, using your earbuds as a microphone is a simple process. By following the steps outlined above, you can use your earbuds for a variety of applications that require a microphone. No need to go out and buy a separate microphone – you can use what you already have!
