How to use an external microphone on the quest 3 for recording


I have recently given up on get my internal microphone to be able to record my voice in-game (stand alone ). I have sent 3 quests back and they have had the same problem. While this is a hard pill to swallow after spending almost a grand (CDN) on it, I’m open to seeing if an external microphone will solve the problem. I tried a microphone with a 3.5 jack but when I plugged it in the headset I lost all audio and couldn’t  record anything .

can anyone help or recommend a mic that will work in stand alone mode (not wired to a pc)


thank you so much
