Microphone doesn't work with small plug

\015 4/20/09\015\012\015\012I have a new Logitech Premium Notebook Headset with USB, which I am trying to use as a microphone input (with regular non-USB plug) to a karaoke stereo system. Unfortunately, I cannot get the microphone to work with a converter for the small sterero jack to a 1/4" stereo (and monoP jack into the karaoke input jack.\015\012\015\012Interesting, I can plug the earphone plug in ... and get good sound if I talk into the ear pieces for the headphones.\015\012\015\012I can get the microphone to work for a recording on my computer when I plug it into the computer using the USB converter/adapter that comes with the Logitech Premium Notebook Headset.\015\012\015\012What do I need to do to get the microphone to work? Is there a special converter/adapter?\015\012\015\012Thanks for the help.\015

Answers :

I'm just taking a stab in the dark here but bare with me on this, I got a lot of info stored in this old head so it takes a while.

If you look at the jack for the microphone, Does it have 2 sleaves and a pin or just 1 sleave and a pin. If it has 2 then you will need an adaptor (Normaly Stereo jack to XLR). If it has 1 sleave then your going to need a preamp.
