Turns A 3.5mm Combo Headphone/Microphone Port Into Two Distinct Ports

The MUYHSMFF Headphone/Microphone Combo Jack splitter (4-position 3.5mm to dual 3-position 3.5mm) is a headset Splitter Adapter featuring one 3.5mm Male (TRRS) and two 3.5mm (TRS) Female connectors, enabling you to add a mono microphone input, as well as a stereo output to your PC or Laptop, through a single 3.5mm audio port. It can turn the combo port into two distinct ports – one 3.5mm headphone jack and one 3.5mm microphone port.

Innovative Audio Ports

While some laptops from Apple and Dell feature only a single (4-position) 3.5mm audio port to support both audio input and output, this innovative headset splitter adapter breaks the audio port out into two distinct ports - one that can be used for a microphone input connection, and the other for connecting external (output) speakers.

Compact And Sturdy Design

The headset splitter features a compact and sturdy design to deliver the perfect solution for applications that require portability, and takes up very little space in your laptop bag. This adapter is not a headphone splitter/Y-cable. It cannot be used to split the audio output to two separate sets of headphones or speakers. Some laptops and mobile devices will not work with all external microphones. This is typically caused by an impedance mismatch between the microphone and the device, due to hardware incompatibility - it is not a limitation of the MUYHSMFF adapter. To ensure proper hardware detection, we recommend that the external headset be plugged into the adapter first, before the adapter is connected to the computer or mobile device.


Product Features And Applications

  • Allows the use of an external microphone and speakers with PCs or Laptops that are equipped with a combo 4-position/4-pin audio port
  • Compact design for maximum portability - a great solution to have on hand in your laptop bag
  • Lightweight, yet sturdy design that can easily be plugged in when required

Worked exactly what it was intended for. People will get this confused with just two headphone females in which this is used for a microphone and audio. I used this with a Logitech G430's for my Xbox One controller with the Xbox One stereo adapter. I can confirm it works 100% for that use. I bought the adapter version because it seemed a bit more better built as far as being little tougher with the little box. Either the adapter or cable version will work with Xbox one Stereo adapter. Iv'e had this for about 4 months now and it's still working great. I Would recommend for Xbox One users and other people confirming this also works for PS4 as well. It's great for people that don't wanna buy specific brands that are just made for Xbox One or PS4 and prefer to use a computer headset with a lot more options and choose what they like.

Pros: Works great with Xbox One stereo adapter, the little box part seems to be decent build, and snaps in hard to keep cables from popping out.

Cons: The box part could be annoying for certain people because its a bit clunky to have while holding a controller then I would suggest getting the cable version if you would think that may be a problem. Other than that there is no other cons.

I have a desktop headset that I wanted to use with my PS4, and I was able to do so thanks to this adapter. After plugging everything in I could listen to game audio and voice chat through the headset, and the mic worked perfectly during multiplayer games and streaming via Twitch.

I just received this today for use on a MacBook Air (why they only give you one audio port on a laptop puzzles me). First time I tested it, it didn't work- but then I figured something out. It's more of a Macbook issue than an adapter issue.

I plugged the adapter into my MacBook with the headphone plug already plugged into it, which worked fine. Then I plugged in the microphone to the microphone jack and... nothing, it didn't work. I went into the sound settings and there was no option to configure anything to fix the issue, the only sound input that showed up was the built in mic.

I unplugged the adapter from the Macbook. The second time around, I made sure both the headphone & external mic cords were first plugged into the adapter and then plugged the adapter back into the Macbook. This time the Macbook recognized the external audio input, I selected it and it worked fine. Years ago a mic plug was a mic plug. Now they're all "smart" plugs that try and sense what you've got connected and configure themselves automatically based on what they think you need to do. As a result, you've got to make note of the order of how you plug them in.

The multi conductor nature of the male plug does make it kind of delicate & susceptible to breaking off, so I make sure to be careful when plugging and unplugging it. At $10 the price is a bit high IMO. Overall not a bad adapter.

This adapter is very misleading, since the microphone side works only on some devices. What is wrong is that not all of the wires from the "three ring" male side are connected to the two female sides. This adapter is supposed to be what's called a "TRRS to TRS/TRS" adapter.

The TRRS refers to the "three ring" male side, where you see four metal bands: T for tip, R for ring, R for another ring, and S for sleeve.
Most companies have the TRRS metal bands used for LRMG, meaning L for left headphone channel, R for right headphone channel, M for microphone, and G for ground. Apple, of course, is LRGM, switching the mic and ground just so you have to buy their special adapter which costs more -- yes they are that cynical.

Anyway, this adapter does not connect on of the MG lines to the microphone. Some devices will tolerate this and compensate, depending on how its connected (e.g., the ground may be connected elsewhere). But for many, it just means that the microphone side will not work at all, or that it may have terrible quality. That's the root of most of the 1 star reviews on here -- the "it does not work" variety.

I had this problem and had to order a different one from a different company. But I was in a huge hurry, so I ended up having to cut this StarTech one apart and solder a new wire in for the MG. I attached a couple pictures for anyone who also has this problem, doesn't mind soldering, and is in too much of a hurry to wait for a new one to be delivered.

Suffice it to say, StarTech is being extremely misleading by not mentioning this in the advertising. Now I can't trust them and will not be buying any more StarTech products.

I purchased this product so that I could use my gaming headset to record voice memos on my iPod Classic, use both the headset and microphone with my MacBook Pro (late 2011 model) and for my Android phone. The adapter works perfectly for all these purposes.

The problem many users face is that their devices have a single 3.5mm headphone jack that supports four-contact connectors for stereo audio and mono microphones but have headphones / speakers and microphones with individual 3.5mm connectors. Additionally, some want to record audio on such devices and use standard microphones that have normal two- or three-contact connectors (and not buy specialized microphones for individual devices). This product works for these purposes.

The only potential drawback is that, on devices like the iPod, in order to have the device recognize a microphone connected via the adapter without an accompanying output audio device, a dummy plug is needed. For example, if you connect just the microphone to the adapter and leave the headphone jack unoccupied, an iPod will not recognize the microphone.

Also, this adapter will not allow you to record stereo audio with a stereo microphone. The four-contact connector has only one contact for input and therefore supports only mono microphone input. This is not a problem or limitation of the adapter but a limitation of the four-contact combination input.
