Sony wh 1000 xm4

Anyone hooting this?

A question on the internal mic and Audio.

I plan to use this for PC games, discord chats as well as for commuting.
I understand that there is no way to chat and listen to the game audio at the same time (wirelessly)

The solution is to get an wired external mic and connect to the 3.5mm jack of the xm4.

Question:
Instead of the above solution, can I connect the (included) 3.5mm cable from the headphones to my PC (wired) for audio and use the internal mic (Bluetooth connection to PC) for discord chats?

Will this allow me to chat and listen to the game audio at the same time?

Granted, I know this isnít a gaming headset but I am getting this As a multi purpose headset. For mobile phones, music, gaming and movies on phone.

Hi, the 1000XM4 audio and mic will work with PC. Once you paired the headphones to the PC, go to the audio settings and you should be able to see the speaker and mic options, and 1000XM4 should be pre-selected. With that, the software will make use of the audio and the mic from the 1000XM4.

If you want to choose different source for speaker and mic, that is also possible.

This thread explains fully the problem. And therefore I am posting my question in my first post.

Ah I see, this is what you are referring to. That is correct: Bluetooth cannot support high quality wireless audio with mic at the same time.

To answer your question, no, the included 3.5mm cable only carries 2 channel and no wired mic. You would need to buy a separate cable with built-in mic, like the image on the reddit thread above.
