Using the Sound Blaster Audio/Mic Splitter Adapter is a cost-effective and convenient way to connect your existing headset to notebooks or PCs without you having to buy a new one.
Many headsets1 today, including the Sound Blaster EVO and Sound Blaster Tactic3D Fury, have a single, combined 3.5mm 4-pole jack for both audio output and microphone input that are meant for use with smartphones and newer notebooks and PCs.
However, connecting these headsets to notebooks or PCs that have separate audio and microphone connectors means that you can only hear the audio on your headset, while its microphone would effectively be unusable. Here's where the Sound Blaster Audio/Mic Splitter Adapter comes in. It effectively splits the headset's audio output and microphone input into two separate jacks so that microphone usage is restored.
Use as an extension cable
The Audio/Mic Splitter Adapter can also be used as an extension of the audio and microphone connectors located at the back of the PC. Thus, you can easily and quickly connect your headset to the PC instead of fiddling with the cables at the back PC, which may not be readily accessible.
