    I am not sure if this is a question that belongs here but i dont know where else it would belong. So i was talking to a tech-smart guy about a type of wire i would need... basically what we have now is a y-splitter compatible and used with an ipad, and the splitter has two ends: on for a mic and one for headphones. for the specific thing that i want to do, he said that i would need a y-splitter but instead of an end for a mic and an end for headphones, i would need a y-splitter that both its ends (or three ends, but right now im guessing i really only should ask for two ends) have mics. i dont need an end for headphones, although if there is such a thing that has two mic ends and one headphone end i would like to search that up too. so what i would like to know is, what is the name of this type of "wire" and maybe where would i buy this thing?

    That article tells you how to use USB mics at the same time.

    Sorry, that's all I can find. Hopefully someone else will be along soon with some other ideas.

    An TRRS to headphone and mic is not what you need. It can only handle one microphone which is an a condenser type. You will need a mixer console to handle two or more microphones.

    Like Technurd said , you "need a mixer console to handle two or more microphones." I had a audio jack splitter on my wife's computer , one goes to headphones and the other to amplified speakers. With the headphones plugged in with the speakers it causes a drop in the speaker audio and slight tone change. This is because having both plugged in at the same time causes an impedance miss-match. I ended up getting an amplified speaker system with a headphone jack on it. Hooking two microphones on the same input would probably make them sound muffled or weird with out a mixer.
