This is the platonic form of a USB sound card. It works well in Windows XP and Mac OS X, has clearly labeled inputs, decent build quality, and has no unnecessary features, at a very affordable price. We bought it to use stereo jack headsets with Skype on Mac computers that don't have microphone jacks, and this adapter fits our needs exactly. This also resolves a problem we have when using Windows XP on our iMacs - Apple doesn't provide the correct sound drivers in Boot Camp, and the built-in iMac headphone jack doesn't work in Windows - the USB adapter works perfectly.

In Mac OS X 10.5 and 10.6 (tested in both) the device is identified as a "C-Media USB Audio Device". Installation was plug-and-play, the device was immediately recognized after plugging in, although I had to manually select it as the input/output device in the Sound preference pane. After selecting it and setting the input levels, OS X and Skype both automatically switched back and forth between Built-in Audio and C-Media USB when it was plugged/unplugged, and remembered the input levels last used on each (although not the systemwide output levels).

A sticker on the outside of the box identifies the chipset as the C-Media CM119, and it is a USB 2.0 device.

Physically, the construction seems plenty robust for a $10 device. The mic and headphone jacks are color coded in standard pink and green, and have large white icon labels that are easily identified. The case is darkly translucent black, and a green LED inside blinks when sound is being transmitted or received, and otherwise glows steady when plugged in but not in active use. It is too thick to plug into the USB ports on the edges of the 2007-2009 silver aluminum iMac keyboards.

If you need a basic stereo speaker output and a mic input, this will probably suit your needs well.

-Pros:
It's inexpensive, and it works as described.

Installation couldn't be easier - just plug it in, and a driver is set up automatically. It works equally well with Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Ubuntu Linux. I have used the 64-bit versions of each on my PC, and each recognized and set up this device when I plugged it in, without any extra effort on my part.

This device is also thin enough that it doesn't block USB ports that are above or below, unless they're using a thick USB plug. However, it could block USB ports to the sides.

-Cons:
The audio output has a little bit if distortion, at least in my experience with it in Windows Vista 64-bit. Fortunately, at least in Windows Vista, you can use a different audio device for audio output.

Also, the microphone input is mono. For musicians, this wouldn't be suitable for making stereo recordings.

-Other Thoughts:
I bought this to use primarily as a microphone input, since the microphone input on my new PC does not work well. The microphone input on this device works very well. The microphone signal is loud and clear with no noise.

When this unit came, I plugged it in and the instillation was quick. I noticed that this sounded a bit worse than my cheap laptop's sound card... Saw other bad reviews and thought something was up... after some tinkering, I found that the fix to set the sound quality is to open up the sound control panel. Then click on the adapter and click 'properties'. Then go to the 'enhancements' tab and check 'Bass Boost' & 'Virtual Surround'. Then go to the 'Advanced' tab and make it so the drop-down list selects '16 bit, 48000Hz (DVD Quality)' instead of the crappy CD quality. I found that the sound is higher in quality and sounds amazing compared to the built in one...

I already own an Xbox 360 and have recently purchased a Playstation 3. I also have a Ear Force X11 Amplified Stereo Headset with Chat but that headset will not work with the PS3 as far the the microphone is concerned. I didn't want to buy another headset, so after a little research I came across this product. It works like a charm. I already have the audio portion of my headset plugged into the headphone jack on my television, so all I needed to do was to plug the pink mic plug on the headset into the pink mic jack on the adapter, plug the adapter into a USB port on the PS3, go into the system settings on the PS3 and change the chat input setting to this device. If your TV doesn't have a headphone jack on it you can also plug the audio plug on the headset into the green jack on the adapter. This device works perfectly, it's is easy to set up, and is a cheap alternative to buying a PS3 dedicated headset.

EDIT: I recently bought 2 more of these. CablesOnline is selling the old version but Aston K is selling the newer version. Buy from Aston K to get the updated version!

I notice a lot of people here on Amazon seem to be completely clueless when it comes to examining a product thoroughly and giving a detailed, unemotional review so here's something I hope is useful.

The following was done with 3 different Windows 7 SP1 machines and nothing more.

Recently, I lost my Audio Advantage Micro which I've been using for many years so I decided to buy a replacement. I was looking at Amazon and while I was leaning towards the Creative USB Go key but I couldn't help notice the very cheap Syba dongle with such glowing reviews. I decided to buy it since the total price was barely anything and if it sucked I'd just get the pricier one.

I just got this little guy in today and it's definitely not the most sturdy built thing, but it was fine enough for every day use without breaking it. You'd have to be a complete moron to break this thing, really. The build quality is exaggerated by some people here. It's really just fine, even beyond the price you are paying for it. If you really are that paranoid about breaking it and have a tendency to do such thing, you could always just give it a good wrap with some electrical tape and add more protection that way.

The two things I noticed people were complaining about were about how much it sticks out and the "annoying" light. Coming from the Audio Advantage Micro, this light is a very dim green that blinks when audio is being fed. I don't know about most people but my attention span is higher than that of a kitten so I was able to not be annoyed by it because there's a big bright screen in front of me, you know?
