Platinum headphones/mic on PC

Created 20/08/2019

I understand it's possible to use the Platinum headphones and mic on a PC. However try as I might, I've been unable to get the mic to work.

I've tried with and without the dongle plugged in (via USB) and with an audio lead plugged into the phones and aux-in sockets to no avail.

I'm running Windows 8. Has anybody managed to achieve this and if so, how?

Thank you.

    Do they show up if you right click the speaker icon at the bottom right of your screen then open sound settings (or whatever win8 equivelant is)?

    I did it on windows 10 but it shouldn't make a difference.

    All i did was plugged the dongle in and it installed the necessary drivers automatically. Then turned on the headset. 

    After that i opened the sound settings and changed output to the headset and mic input to the headset.
