Ok I tried google and google hasn't helped. First person to post a link to LMGTFY gets 30 smacks with a wet noodle.

I want to know if I can use the single jack audio accessories that have headphones and a microphone on a Windows 7 PC. These are most common with the iPhone and iPod Touch because they are distributed with these devices.

That's specifically what is needed.

The headsets supplied with the iPhones have 2 rings and a tip, essentially one is audio, one is mic, one is ground.
A Y split like the one mentioned above splits these up into 2 viable plugs, as the sockets in a PC are built for 1 ring and a tip.
