I have a Sennheiser CX 275s In-Ear Headphone with mic facility. The mic is working fine while used in phone but when trying in PC it is not working.
I have inserted it in the rear pink port as line-in . Now , in the pic attached, which one do i need to choose as a default microphone? There are two Mic in Ready mode. The Playback output is my 2.1 speaker.

I own an Alienware laptop & my office has a Dell PC, in both, when I plug in a headphone/speaker, I get an option to select what device it was. If I select headset with mic, the PC switches to my headset's mic.

Connect your headphone to a 3.5mm combo jack (check mobo manual to find which is what) & try to see if available devices change. I hope you have already tried using the different available "ready" mics to see if you are getting the desired mic.

My Monitor is Dell with built in webcam and microphone(SP2309W) and this mic is the default one. taken by the system. I have tried the Line-in (pink) port at the rear of mobo with the headphone jack and set it as default nut still the Dell mic is capturing the sound and not the Headphone mic.

What you need is 3.5mm Mic Audio Y Splitter Cable .. connect the CX275s with it and then connect only the mic end of the Y cable with the PCs mic in port ( pink ) and disable the other mic ( the one of the monitor's )
