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!

For starters, I didnt expect anything more than the lowest of quality from this sound device.
And, I was not let down when my expectations came through.

With a few adjustments, I was able to improve the output volume significantly! Just follow these simple steps:

1. Make certain to disable your other sound devices. This eliminates hardware conflicts and some static/feedback issues I was having.

2. Make CERTAIN you are using a USB 2.0 or otherwise POWERED USB port. This is a "well duh" since you need a powered port for the stuff inside to do what it does! :)

3. MAKE CERTAIN that you adjust the output volumes of BOTH the computers volume controls AND your actual media playing software. If you do not LOWER them significantly, and are using POWERED SPEAKERS, you will get HORRIBLE AUDIO.

4. After adjusting the software volume and OS based amplifications, then adjust your POWERED SPEAKERS to raise the volume to a level you find appealing.

Headphone users will not need to deal with most of this because they are not using speakers with another amplifier.
What most of you are going to experience, is an obscene amplification of your audio PRIOR to being output by yet another amplification process. Simple terms: The sound is already "loud" before your speakers "turn it up"

Just make the output sound less in volume before it reaches your speakers, and you can avoid this over amplification issue and enjoy decent sound from this cheapy solution. I am satisfied with my purchase now that I have spent the time to adjust it to what it actually needed in the first place. (as soon as I reread the description I realized that it had it's own amplifier. so it was then an issue of removing the extra volume and PRESTO!

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!

Not a lot to talk about here - I had been using a Logitech Snoopy-like headset on my old Dell laptop, so the separate microphone and speaker pins matched the laptop's connectors. However, I have since obtained a MacBook Pro and set up Windows 7 under Parallels (as well as a direct boot-up in Bootcamp), and the Mac doesn't have the connectors for mike and speakers. I saw this kind of adapter at a cost of about $20 at a store, and figured I would check with Amazon - and found this item which seems to be the exact same thing. And it works - when I first plugged the headset connectors into the unit and the unit into the USB port, the MacBook popped up a window asking which "side" I wanted it to work with (I was running Parallels with Skype open in Windows 7 at the time). I selected the Windows side, and after that it just worked.

What more is there to say?
