The audio out broke on my laptop which I use in my DJ business. This unit was immediately recognized by Windows 7 and worked great right out of the box! The output is stronger than the audio out of my laptop which is a godsend when trying to cue up a song while another one is playing full blast through the sound system. I would give it 5 stars if the volume control worked better. It looks like a dial but is actually a momentary contact switch which raises and lowers the volume when moved in either direction. It does not work that smoothly, but once the volume was set I didn't have to adjust it anymore.

Comments about Audio-Technica ATR2USB 0.13" (3.5 mm) to USB Audio Adapter:

Originally bought this due to a bad headphone jack on a laptop. I now use it on a desktop, even though the audio out on this machine works fine. The reason? Because the dynamic range of the ATR2USB seems to be superior to the original hardware!

Do Not Buy

Comments about Audio-Technica ATR2USB 0.13" (3.5 mm) to USB Audio Adapter:

Fresh out of the box, it worked great with my computer for a few days. Then it started smoking and then melted one day after a short period of using. I contacted the company and they sent me a new one, free of charge. Once again, it worked for a few days and then it melted again.

        I needed an extra Audio source for my laptop that had 1 in/out port - but I needed another port to connect Headset and researched the possibilities of using one of the 3 USB ports that I had and B/H
        had exactly what I needed - have used the cable - no distortion and user friendly

                    I had an old Mac mini that could no longer run the latest Mac OSX software so I didn't want to run an old OS and risk security. I put a copy of Windows on it and the only problem was the audio didn't work. I bought this adapter and it worked as soon as I plugged it in. I now can use this as a backup machine or to run an occasionally windows program.

                            my headphone jack was broken, so I spent $13 for this converter, and it works perfectly. It's a very straightforward adapter, with a couple extra functions that I don't need personally, but add even more bang for your buck. It's a great deal and solution for the cost

                            the only downside is that the exterior plastic casing is a little flimsy, and while this doesn't effect it's usage, and I haven't had any problems, I expect it's lifetime to be lowered because of this.

                                Came quickly, very quickly. I had an older headset with 1/8" jacks and needed to use it for VOIP on my laptop so needed USB connection. Works great and cheaper than a new headset.

                                I use the product with voice recognition software to dictate. I needed a USB microphone and headset adapter. This almost immediately worked with Windows 7, after the driver automatically downloaded. I has been working flawlessly. The Mute and Volume Control were added bonuses I hadn't required. The Indicator LED's are nice to have. It's not the most sturdy piece of electronics, but more than adequate, especially for the price.

                                    Comments about Audio-Technica ATR2USB 0.13" (3.5 mm) to USB Audio Adapter:

                                    I am having problems with my 1/4" jack. I gotthis and it solved my problems, plus the manual volume conrol is nice so I dont have to use my mouse to adjust the volume. Quicker that way, too.
