Can I use Using Earphones/Headphones with a mic to give voice commands in DIY Alexa on raspberryPi zero/3b/3b+ by connecting the 3.5mm male jack to the board via a USB type c/ micro USB adapter as the 3.5mm jack is only for audio OUT?

Can I use Bluetooth speakers to receive the audio while giving input via a USB mic/mic array

Is it possible to do so?
