Default Loud constant sound from 3.5mm mic

Hey guys,

So i built a new computer, and I would like to use my apple ear buds/mic by connecting through a splitter to my nzxt s340 front headphone/mic jacks respectively (msi b350m gamer pro motherboard). The problem is, whenever I connect the microphone male to the female of either the front mic jack or the rear one, there is just a loud constant sound and nothing else is picked up. I don't think it is grounding because this noise is like all there is and even with maximum boost nothing is picked up at all. I believe there is some setting or conflict somewhere that is causing this but don't know what to do. Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds more like a short between the input and ground pins. Does your PC have a mic input in the front as well as teh back? I'd try plugging into whichever port you haven't been using so far and see if the issue continues

It might be a problem with the actual audio jack
