Tripp Lite USB External Sound Card Microphone Speaker Virtual 7.1 Channel is rated 4.50 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product meets a real need New laptops do not have the same connections as the older ones. This product meets a need for a microphone and headphone jack. Topping that off, there are controls for these devices to turn them off and control volume. A definite winner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes adding a mic input a breeze. I use for song writing ideas, makes connection to computer a breeze on windows machines, won't work on my iMac, but I blame that on Apple not Tripp-Lite.
