Default Corsair HS50

Hello, I just bought the headset, but the mic isn't working. I am using on a laptop and it is instead receiving from the laptop. How I can make it work?
There isn't a mic jack on the laptop so I can use the Y cable.

Sounds like your laptop has a combination 3.5mm jack where audio and mic are in one. Connect the headset without the Y-cable, then go into your Recording Devices by right clicking the speaker icon on your system tray, and set the headset jack as your default device. Also, make sure the headset is not muted itself. The button is on the left earcup.
