An incredibly handy upgrade to your tired, broken or noisy computer audio that features a volume control knob, dedicated mute buttons and support for just about every OS known to man - without the need for drivers!
The clearest audio you've ever heard from your PC!
If you've ever spent time with an entry-level desktop computer or laptop, you may be familiar with the electronic noise which leaks into your headphones, earbuds or even speakers. You can test it right now - with no sound playing, crank your volume up to full. Hear that? Ugh. That crackle and hiss is pretty common, but on poorly designed hardware it can be a nightmare even at regular listening volumes.
That's where this USB audio adapter shines (also known as a USB sound card). It can drastically reduce (if not totally eliminate) that noise and clean up your audio, allowing you to listen to music, watch films and play games without the underlying hiss. You'll not only get to experience your headphones and speakers as they were meant to be heard, but you'll get a bit of a volume boost, too, thanks to the USB power.
These adapters are also great for gaming headsets, with a dedicated TRRS combo stereo/microphone port right there between the normal stereo and microphone ports. Best of all, you can place it somewhere more useful for easier access than the back of your desktop PC.
This fancy-pants USB Sound Card features a volume control knob (super useful) and both mute (for the mic) and deafen (for the stereo signal) so you can cut audio in or out any time you like. Good for virtual meetings and Discord servers when you need to burp/sneeze/cough/chortle without audience participation.
Note: If your PC has a dedicated sound card or a good gaming-grade motherboard with an isolated audio chipset, this adapter may not improve the noise floor. But for unshielded audio hardware on mid to low-end systems - or if you sound card has given up the ghost - the difference will be immediately apparent.
