The USB-AUDIO is an ideal way to straight away add a headphone and a microphone jack to almost any USB-enabled PC or laptop. Featuring a black aluminum shell with a clean, compact design, this USB audio adapter installs without needing to load any additional drivers. It’s so simple as setting this adapter as your default audio output and input device and off you go, listening to your favorite tunes and recording with ease. This audio adapter actually shines with custom Linux development boards like the Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone Black, and other unique scenarios such as a “Hackintosh” setup where the onboard audio devices shouldn’t have Mac drivers. System Compatibility No additional drivers necessary. Compatible with standard built-in “USB Audio Class” drivers which are already integrated into most operating systems including Windows 10, 8.1/8, 7, XP, Linux, Mac OS X and Chrome OS The USB Type A connection gets plugged into the computer and you gain one 3.5 mm (1/8 inch) stereo output jack and one 3.5 mm (1/8 inch) mono microphone input jack The USB-AUDIO is USB bus powered, so no external power is needed Microphone Compatibility The USB-AUDIO has been designed to accommodate common headsets which feature a 3.5mm TRS headphone- and 3.5mm TRS microphone jack. When you’ve got a TS microphone, a 3.5 mm (1/8 inch) mono to stereo adapter is necessary to adapt the microphone from TS to TRS (plese see descriptive image below). XLR based microphones (despite the fact that adapted to a different interface such as 3.5mm TRS) will not work with this audio adapter. 48V of additional Phantom Power is needed to make this work. The audio adapter does not provide Phantom Power. Even though the microphone port on this audio adapter is TRS, it is still on the other hand a mono microphone port. If you playback the recorded audio you technically hear the right channel duplicated.
