    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.

        Bought this adapter after finding out the hard way that my new MacBook did not have an audio in port that was shared with headphone jack. This cheap work around was great!

          This works very well with my old Mac Book Pro. The sound was no longer working on my old laptop and this was a successful and inexpensive solution to fixing that problem.

          Saved old Mac mini running windows

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

          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.

              I bought this because I have no mic imput on my laptop. I have found the output to my headphones is better than the laptops native jack as well.

                        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.

                                Plugged right in on Windows7 and Windows8. Good sound quality and nice to have volume control. Short extension cord a bit awkward and should use efficient head phones/ear buds. It drives Audio-Technica ATH-T400 head phones to high-enough sound levles.

                                  I bought this for my daughter to use for Skype-ing while playing Minecraft with her friends. This adapter allows her to use a less expensive heasdset than the USB versions ($+) and still have excellent quality audio. Great price, prompt service. A good deal.

                                    Used it to conect a wired lavalier mic to my laptop. Works great.

                                    My laptop's audio-out port was damaged, so I needed a roundabout way to connect my speakers to my laptop. I looked online and found out I can reroute the connection via USB with what is essentially an external sound card.

                                    I found this product at B&H and it works just fine. However, sometimes streaming video lags behind the sound because I think the adapter takes up some CPU. But after I pause and let it buffer a bit, it works perfectly.
