Top customer reviews
After plugging it in, plugging a pair of earbuds in, and letting the drivers install, I noticed first of all that there was a fair deal of white noise in the background, like you'd hear if you turn a cheap stereo to max volume. The second thing I noticed was that it was VERY loud. No problem, I can just turn the volume down and... oh, it's at minimum volume already.
A bit of Googling later showed me that this is a fairly common issue with USB audio devices in Windows 7, and I installed a free program called "Equalizer APO" that lets me fine-tune the device as needed. Setting the preamp gain to -35 dB seems to be around the audio levels I had before.
The only issue remaining is the white noise, which is very quiet and not very noticeable for my Sennheiser headphones, and quite loud in my Skullcandy earbuds. It may have to do with the built-in microphone jack in my earbuds, or it may have something to do with the construction of both. In any case, this little device seems to work well for my needs. If I were a diehard audiophile, I'd have bought a better soundcard by this point, anyway, let alone a audio jack.
No problems! Like other reviewers have said, you need to switch to DVD quality from the settings or else it sounds funky. But now it sounds amazing again! I'm so happy I don't have to purchase a new computer just to listen to songs on youtube, to animate, or to skype with someone. I highly recommend this if your audio jack is broke but you have a fine USB jack. The one I got does not have a flashing light, and it is small (sort of) but does block other USB ports; but they are ones I never use, just emergency if the current stops working. It seems durable, but I would be gentle with it either way. You may need to tinker with settings like I did, but it works just fine. Highly recommended, and the inexpensive price is a plus. Oh, and for those wondering if it works on a Windows 8, it works on my Windows 8 laptop, so you should be fine.
Yes, I'd recommend to others.
