Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"I bought an expensive headset from Steel Series and the USB adapter was junk."
_
"I was very disappointed with the Turtle Beach Audio Adapter."
_
"so, i bought this because my motherboard internal audio jacks broke, so i needed and adapter i could use."
_
"The LED on my working Amigo blinks steadily but the faulty adapters just have a continuous blue light."
_
"This adapter is not Windows 8 compatible and after contacting Turtle beach support, they acknowledged the issue and pretty much stated that they probably aren't going to release a Windows 8 Driver for it."
_
"Unfortunately, the Mac has no mic input, and no amount of fiddling and outboard analog audio gear could convince the Mac to use the headset with the virtual PC (and apparently VMWare has some continuing problem with getting an analog mic input into the virtual PC).This USB adapter solved the problem neatly and quickly with no driver disc needed."
_
"I bought this Turtle Beach Audio Advantage Amigo II USB Sound Card & Headset Adapter and it works great and its well constructed--especially compared to the thin plastic, unreliable piece of junk that came with the Steel Series--I really cannot describe how cheap that piece was--esp."
_
"I ended up replacing it with the iLuv USB Audio Adapter, which has served me perfectly and lasted a lot longer."
_
"This adapter worked perfectly with my Sennheiser PC 360 Headset"
_
"I bought the Star Tech audio adapter instead and it's perfect."
_
"There isn't any feedback, or any drawbacks to using this adapter."

Audio

Audio:
"Works like a charm... even better than the audio jack which was broken."
_
"My speakers aren't great, so I can't describe audio quality, but from a superficial guess, it seems good."
_
"Audio jack broke in our laptop."
_
"My only fault that I have is that when there is no audio playing one can sometimes hear a bit of a grumbling crackling, I suspect this is more interference from my laptop than the USB sound card itself though, it's a pretty minor fault as it is barely noticeable and is completely unnoticeable when audio is playing."
_
"I was very disappointed with the Turtle Beach Audio Adapter."
_
"But then a friend recommended Turtle Beach Audio and I couldn't be happier."
_
"Works great I have bought some usb audio devices very cheap ones and when I use my ear phones the ear phones start to heat up, it's odd but I did some reading and I think it has to do with the kind of electricity coming from the sound card any way this sound card works great it does not heat up my ear phones, I can listen for hours with no problems at all and the sound is great also."
_
"Does it's job and provides good quality audio output and input."
_
"Worked instantly and perfectly with Win7, very clear audio."
_
"Does exactly what it says good audio quality great USB sound solution."

Microphone

Microphone:
"Unfortunately, the Mac has no mic input, and no amount of fiddling and outboard analog audio gear could convince the Mac to use the headset with the virtual PC (and apparently VMWare has some continuing problem with getting an analog mic input into the virtual PC).This USB adapter solved the problem neatly and quickly with no driver disc needed."

"Similar problems as a few other reviewers...First, most annoying problem was probably the fact that the microphone is played through the headset at all times."
_

"My laptop's headphone and microphone in jacks were dying, and so I was looking around for a USB sound that could handle microphone in as well as audio out, I was mostly finding pretty cheap ones, which generally had mixed reveiws, so I asked a few folks for what they would recommend and one recommend this one."
_
"The only problem I've had is that it comes out of the USB jack too easily when I'm unplugging a speaker or microphone, which stops all the audio drivers on my computer."
_
"i bought this when the X12 wouldn't work on my headset mic combo input and now the X12 works perfectly have not had any trouble with it."
