. So that means you only have 3 connections. That leads me to believe that the barrel (the long shiny part) is a common and the tip and first metal ring are the signals for the mic and spkr. Sounds like the signals wires may be swapped from what you need. . I'd try swapping the signal wires somewhere. Where the easiest place to do that is depends on your equipment.

. Try hollering into the spkr. If you get anything, then I'm right.

. I may have misunderstood what your trying to do. I'm thinking you're trying to use the mic in your headset to record your voice on the computer. Did I get that right? . I'm also assuming that it is a monaural setup. If it's a stereo headset, you're missing a plug.
