My brother is going to buy a Razer Electra headset, but there is a problem with the mic, It uses a combo jack, in which both the mic and the audio are combined in a single jack(three lines). like what iPod and most Phones use. and that he will use it primarily with his Desktop PC, which uses the traditional green,pink,etc jacks.
So how do I know if a certain motherboard, sound card or port supports this combo jack thingy? or the only choice is to buy an adapter? and What's the proper term for this "combo jack"?
and while you're at it, any suggestions for a headset(with a proper mic) at the same price range? he will use it for gaming primarily Battlefield 3, and It needs to have a good Bass.
Other potential choices: Razer Orca, Roccat Kulo, CM Sirus S
