We bought our son a Turtle Beach headset to use with a Dell laptop. Dell tends to use proprietary connections for things and parts. One of them was the use of a common headset&microphone jack rather than two separate jacks. The gaming headset has two separate plugs. This handy little adaptor worked perfectly and the Christmas gift we got him now works great. B&H also had the best price for this product and shipped immediately.

I ordered two for use with my iPhone in the car, and neither one has a good connection - one channel goes out often, and for some reason the interference causes Siri to keep asking me what I want. When it works the sound quality is fine, but the least little jiggle causes crackles and static. Wish it worked, I really needed it.

          Works nice to split a combo laptop single mic and headphone jack into two separate ports. Ports are clearly labeled as to which is the mic input and which is the headphone input. Simple but functional.

          Comments about StarTech 3.5mm Combo Jack Splitter:

          When I graduated law school, my parents knew exactly what to get me for a present. All my adult life I wanted nothing but a 3.5mm combo jack splitter that can split my microphone headset combo into 2 channels. Once I got it I plugged them into my computer and spammed dank memes into the chat all day.

              I ordered this when the manufacturer of my malfunctioning computer told me it would solve my audio problems. They were wrong (not for the first time!) They were out of stock, so I ordered it from B and H for a bit more than half the price of my computer manufacture. B and H warned me it was unlikely to solve my problems. They were right, but I ordered it to take the chance. I'll probably find a use for it sooner or later. So five stars for B and H service; three stars for the item since it probably works just fine if used properly.

                Well made and works perfectly with my Galaxy S5 phone and headphones. The phone's headphone connector is a headphone and mic connector. By using this splitter I can now listen with my headphones in full stereo.

                      Needed this for several new laptops, including some Lenovos and HPs, which came with a single audio port. This splitter is small and sturdy and works just fine. I've already bought 5 of them.

                        We compared this to the option offered by Sennheiser and it was less than half the price. It does the job perfectly.

                                I have been recording audio at conferences with my laptop for years. Now with this little adapter I am able to capture audio both on my Samsung S3 and my Tab 2. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it can only accept a line level input. If this had some kind of impedence matching it would be perfect. I suppose there are more expensive products out there that do the trick, but for under $9 its a great deal.

                                The StarTech MUYHSMFF was purchased b/c the Steelseries gaming headset received for Christmas had two connectors (one for the earpieces and one for the mic), but my HP W520 laptop had a single combined 4-contact connector for the mic/speakers. It was received in good time (even over Christmas with "saver" shipping) from B&H Photo, and has done the job it is supposed to for the 2 weeks I've had it. It does not get a "5" b/c there is slight static if the plug is inadvertently twisted or jostled during use - this indicates a better contact coating could have been used, but it is as good as could be expected for $[$]. Before the adapter, only the integrated mic could be used; those listening say the sound is now much better (though that's a function of the mic, more than the adapter).Note - there are only a couple of these on the market. The other comes from China (I'm in US), and cost as much.

                                Fast delivery, quick turn-around. This splitter makes it possible to use regular 3.5mm headphones with my Samsung Galaxy S4, which has the headphone/mic combo jack.
