These come in two models

Headphone and microphone combination

I found a fix to the problem, no adapter necessary. I had the exact same problem. This is really wierd but to make the computer recognize BOTH microphones at the same time, what you do is you need to uninstall the "Realtek High Definition Audio Driver". For some reason in my case it also improved the sound quality when I uninstalled it.

Before my computer only noticed the "2- Realtek High Definition Audio", and when I plugged in my headphones it still only displayed one and just switched over to the mic of the headset. Now that I uninstalled the driver, it notices the two different mic's and you can set as default.

Look for "headset with boom mic" on ebay

Or "headphones with boom mic" or "gaming headset" or any combination of "headphone" and "mic" or "headset" and mic.
Although "Mike" is a perfectly acceptable abbreviation for Microphone, "mic" is far more common and will come up with more hits.
If you really want just a mic with no headset, go to ebay and look for "pc mic". There are many on there now for $.99 "buy it now" with free shipping. Amazon will have them in stock too, but you'll have to pay shipping or make a larger order.
