Aurora R7, Mic port doesn't work with Apple earbuds (TRRS)

I want to use Apple earbuds mic to talk while gaming. I bought two different 3.5 mm audio and mic splitters but none of them worked. I don't know whether the problem is from Apple or Aurora R7. The earbuds are working fine on my laptops. Has anyone experienced this? Would like to know your method to fix this.

This one works for me (with old wired Apple iPhone headset): Headset Splitter

They sound pretty good for ear-buds, and yes, the mic works.

And this is the other one some people need sometimes ... goes the opposite way ...

... like if you had a nice old analog-audio gaming headset and wanted to use it on something like a new XPS-laptop that just has the one 3.5mm jack: Headset Adapter
