    AFAIK, there's no way to do this.

    The earphone jack on a computer/laptop/monitor is pretty much a "Line Out" jack which sends the audio signal(s) out from the computer and to the earphones. In this case, there's no signal flow back into the computer (Mic's tend to plug in to Line In or Mic jacks)

    I could be wrong, as I'm just pickin' this outta my ass.

    yup, the pc's jacks are only single signals. whereas iphone earbuds have both line in and line out in one jack. if you have a mac it'll work (from memory the macs jack is both in/out) but you can buy a splitter that does two into one though. but you might as well grab a headset, heck i bought the one i use for $4

    If you have a stero mic jack, it'll work (it'll interpret the earbuds as a second mic). However PC usually has only a mono mic jack, because the mic is almost always in mono.

    I recommend what others have already said - get a seperate mic/headset. Or, you can do what my friend does - use a webcam mic to solve all your problems.
