Simple and clean – USB 2.0 Virtual 7.1 Channel Sound Card Adapter Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
* Simple device, offers mic+headset jacks, volume control, headphone and mic mute buttons * No drivers needed, just plug and play * Great if you need an extra jack or if your built-in is unusable. * Worked on my Win/XT
Cons:
* It is not 7.1 audio, I can't understand why they label it as such. But if you just want headphones + mic, it's all you need. * A bit big, may make close-lying USB ports unusable. Can be used with USB extension cord if that's a problem. * Mic can be heard thru headphone, maybe this will create a problem under certain conditions.
Other:
My lenovo laptop had a 4-pole combo jack for both headphones and mic, could not find an adapter to use regular headsets, so I had to buy this device to make it work.
Bottomline:
* * *
