Pros: Picked this up as a work around for a busted headphone jack in my laptop, turned out to be way better with far more options than I'd expected. It gave my laptop a more true feeling surround option for headphones. Haven't tried plugging a set of speakers into it just yet.
Cons: No real cons, does what it says on the tin.
Overall Review: Been using a creative sound card in my rig for the last decade, I think this USB device might out-perform it though, which feels weird to say, but I guess it IS a decade old...
Pros: Cleans up gaming audio.
Cons: Had to re-install software to get it to work.
Overall Review: I just needed an external USB sound "card" because my GT 1030 graphics card covered the PCI slot on my desktop mobo. Don't know why the slots were placed so close together! After re-installing the software a few times I got it to work (Windows 10 64-bit), but ended up just using the drivers as the sound was just too "muddy". It seems this product was more designed to be paired with Sound Blaster headphones, which I didn't buy. It does seem to do as advertised in that it enhances the audio when I play Skyrim, but for other uses like listening to music or watching YouTube, sound quality is widely inconsistent. Overall, probably a good choice for Gaming when paired with the recommended headphones, or for laptop use. I rated it a "3 out of 5" but would not recommend it for other than gaming.
Pros: -Works out-of-the-box on Windows and PS4
-Works with any 3.5mm jack device
-Sounds better than my on-board sound card
Overall Review: I got this to replace my aging Plantronics Gamecom USB device, which had kicked the bucket. This little thing has some great directional sound! Better yet, it works with virtually every game/movie I've played. For the tech-savvy, you can download an additional program on Windows to further tune various sound settings. If you have a standard headset/headphones, this will allow you to connect it to a PS4 (haven't tested on Xbox One). I don't know it sounds compared to the more expensive PCIe cards, but it's definitely worth the price if you're upgrading from on-board audio.
