A non-USB headset will have 2 audio plugs-- one for audio (listening) and one for microphone (recording). They usually have colored or embossed references on the cables and plugs somewhere.
Plug the headset into your computer. If a popup similiar to this appears on your computer when you plug in the headset , choose the microphone option.
Also be aware that some headsets have in-line volume control and mute. Be sure to check these if you cannot hear or record.
Make sure your microphone is close to and just below your mouth, typically between your chin and mouth. You want to speak across the microphone, not directly into it. This will help alleviate breathing sounds and “popping Ps”.
If you have a shorter mic boom, follow the same principles placing the mic so it points at the corner of your mouth.
