Are the tips of the cables colored? How many of these colors correspond to the connectors on your sound card?
You may see these colors on your sound card:
White or Yellow: digital out typically used with surround sound equipment
Blue: Sound in for connecting an external audio source
Pink: for the microphone connection.
Green: Sound out for your speakers/headphones
Black: Another sound out connector.
Orange: Another sound out connector.
You may want to refer to the headset's documentation and your audio cards documentation as well.
