Product Description

Instead of struggling to reach your computer's ports on the back, wouldn't it be nice to connect your speakers or microphone to the front.This simple adapter adds a microphone-in and an audio-out port to your computer through a USB port. It's a great way to connect peripherals whose cords aren't long enough to reach around the back of your PC.

The sound quality is horrible, especially when used with headphones.
Nirespire
Not worth it at all... The case completely fell apart and the USB plug-in part fell off of the circuit board underneath... Very delicate.
Dana
It would also get really hot if plugged in for too long and I could feel my earbuds in my ears getting hot which was very uncomfortable.

If you notice there are reviews all over the place. The reason for this is because those that are not getting good performance are not setting them up correctly in windows. After you install the USB device in a USB 2 connector (not a USB 1) you have to go into the windows volume control panel and be sure to select it (USB) as the device to be used. Otherwise it will still be set on your internal sound card. It is best to disable the internal sound card or else you may end up with noise you don't want. If you set it up correctly it works beautifully and for a fraction of the cost of a new soundcard.

I love it, it works well with my PS3 and PC, it has great sound through the Headphones, it is very good if you dont want to spend the extra money on a PS3 headset when you can buy a PC headset for $5 or less, so it is alot cheaper alternative for a PS3 headset!

I got this adapter as a replacement for my broken headphone jack which I used to plug my speakers into.

With the adapter (Used in conjunction with my Logitech X-240 Speakers), however, there is a small, but noticeable, amount of static coming from some songs. I can't be sure as to what causes the static, but in the songs where it does occur, lowering the 8K and 16K settings in the iTunes equalizer makes most of it go away.

But, if you're like me and like loud music, you will be disappointed. Turning up the volume makes the speakers sound like they're going to blow out any second. This didn't use to happen when I didn't need the adapter.

In review: It's not terrible, but not great. Not for loud music fans.

I use a laptop and I was having problems with the sound for a while. The jack got messed up somehow so I could only hear if I had my headphones pugged into the jack at some odd angle and I constantly had to wiggle it into place. After a while that didn't work anymore so I had to find an alternative...I bought this thing. It works. When I first plugged it in I was surprised that it actually worked but I wasn't blown away by the sound quality. I was just happy I could hear something. Anyway, it has been a few days and it still works but not very well. There is lots of static in the background and sometimes the sound cuts off completely. Also, itunes doesn't always recognize it but WMP does. I don't get that. This product is very cheaply made. I don't recommend it. There has got to be something better out there!

i bought this item so i can use it with "Djay" so i can pre-cue music. i used it on my macbook pro and it worked fine. The sound quality is not the best it sounds rough, but like i said i only bought it so i can pre-cue music through the headphones. u cant go wrong with the price. overall it got the job done for me..

Needed to buy this after the microphone jack from my laptop broke. It's easy to use (just plug it in) and the sound I get on the headphone is very good. However, the sound recorded from the microphone has quite a bit of background noise and I am told that I'm hard to understand when making phone calls through Skype since there are some 'clicking' noises (could be some interference with other laptop components?). But for less than 10$ it's ok (would have spent 4 times as much in a store).

The best thing I can say about this product is that, initially, the sound works fine. It's not the best sound but functional anyway. The claim that this is 5.1 surround sound is clearly false. It has a red LED which is constantly on and blinks when sound is coming through. This gets irritating quickly. The plastic construction and the way the USB connector is mounted to the circuit board make this item fragile. I used it with my laptop in bed and after momentarily setting the laptop down on a pillow I noticed the adapter was bent. After a week the adapter fell apart. You'd be better off to shell out a few more bucks and get logitech or at least a BRANDED adapter. This one doesn't even have an official manufacturer. You get what you pay for I suppose but buying this is paying to get ripped off.
