Mit der alten Version konnte man den grausamen Onboard Mic Eingang von Laptops super aufwerten, das ist nun vorbei.
Stand 07.12.2019 getestet mit ModMic 5. Soundkarte direkt über Amazon.de bestellt.
Der Mic Eingang hat jetzt nur noch eine Versorgungsspannung von 2,9V. (siehe Foto)
Pegel ist selbst auf Gain 100 sehr niedrig und man hat rausch/brumm Geräusche mit drin.
Es gibt nicht mal eine Kennzeichnung der Eingänge, nur die Buchsen haben eine andere Farbe.
Keine Kaufempfehlung, 0 Sterne.
No nonsense involving psychoacoustic "3D surround sound" nonsense, no bullshit features or unnecessary design - this is a simple 2x2 USB audio interface, and it's very well engineered.
Its small profile means you can use it almost anywhere without blocking other USB ports. It can be a snug fit sometimes to connect a USB cable in an adjacent port, as the width of the black part is on the edge of acceptable, but you can make it work.
I use one of these on my main PC. Despite it having a premium Asus gaming motherboard, its onboard sound chipset - and the poor circuit design -
causes loads of EM interfaces. £6.99 later, a Sabrent gives me excellent quality sound output almost indistinguishable from a much more expensive audio interface I use for music production. I also use a Sabrent on my work laptop and again, It Just Works. Inarguably useful.
They're not indestructible, but they are very well made. Recently, someone managed to BEND one of mine by dragging a heavy table past my PC, and the table leg snagged against the Sabrent plugged into it. Remarkably, despite now looking quite broken, both headphone and microphone still worked. (I've since retired the broken adapter to the WEEE skip in the sky).
If you use a ModMic, or a headset mic with a powered capsule, buy one of these. Antlion Audio manufacture their own branded equivalent of these, but it's vastly more expensive and frankly, probably identical in quality.
I bought this to work with the Neewer NW-700. I bought that a few days ago and had it plugged into a 2009 iMac. Unfortunately, it wouldn’t pick up decent sound volume from the microphone when it was plugged into the headphone jack or into the line in jack.
• The description details how its driverless requiring no extra software.
• It was also listed as often bought with the NW-700.
• Finally it lists as working with Mac so I thought I would take a punt and try it.
I don’t know what I’m doing, I really don’t! Hopefully if you don’t know what you’re doing either, then this review helps!
As in the pictures, a very simple package with some instructions, a thick foam mount to hold the adapter in and thats about it.
There really isn't much to it. It seems well made, with no obvious marks, scratches or weaknesses. Overall it looks nicely designed and well thought out with the different colours providing clear indication of what each port is.
The instructions cover it but it really is simple, plug in and then attach either microphone, headphones or both into their respective ports. It was picked up by the Mac instantly and since plugging it in, I have a decent sound input and the NW-700 works brilliant. The last photo shows it appearing as a USB audio device. I still sound like an idiot though unforetunately!
Longevity: Its a USB plug, and its going to be left in for a while. It shouldn't fail and I'd be quite annoyed if it did. However, if it does fail in a short period then it also has the option to register for a 2 year warranty. I've done this just to make sure. If it does fail, as always I will update this review.

Two words, IT WORKS! Actually, it works FLAWLESSLY. My line out from the mixer goes straight to the mic/line in on this USB adapter. Can't fault the audio quality, even if you use inexpensive mics. Installation was easy. It was simply PLUG & PLAY. I didn't really need to download drivers or software. I was up and running in no time.
I needed a way to connect my mixer to my iMac. This made it possible and it did it affordably. Would I buy this again? Yes. Would I recommend it? DEFINITELY. No need for expensive USB interfaces. Just this. If already have a mixer; THEN, EVEN BETTER. Received it the following day too!
Fast forward a week and I identify the item crashing the USB lines is this USB sound card. A week later and it cannot be used at all. Checked the returns window and I am well outside it, so stuck with another wasted £8. I would expect anything to last more than 3 weeks!!!
Instead I am back to the old Blue SJ588 which I bought for £2 on a certain auction site 10 years ago and all is well.
I am very disappointed as the Sabrent has glowing reviews on many amateur radio sites and youtube, but sadly this simply isnt that good.
Avoid this one.
On the digital side of things with my Vestax USB controller and my preferred streaming program 'Simplecast', i had no problems, but with the oldskool decks & vinyl, what a nightmare!, i couldn't get the line in/mic input to work, and was constantly getting the 'No mic plugged in' alert, a quick look on the internet, showed this to be a known issue, after trying various setups & drivers i still had no luck
so I bought this, plugged it into a USB port, plugged my stereo RCA to 3.5mm Jack into the pink mic plug, opened Simplecast, selected the USB sound device Mic in option from the config drop down menu, and viola! it works!
there seems to be some reviews saying its a bit 'cheapy' built!, for £6 i don't care, I'd just buy another, until HP & Realtek finally sort out the program, which personally I think will never happen!
Once I plugged this adapter in it was a day and night difference. Instantly I was audible and the noise is, as far as I can tell, non existent. Definitely worth the money and I would 100% recommend this to anyone using a modmic.
The headphone jack is also fine.
When playing audio (music / radio), the Pi plays through the 3.5mm jack to my hifi system. However, the Pi analogue sound comes with lots of pops and clicks. This USB sound device provides an cheap and easy fix.
Just plug it in to the Pi, and use the headphone out instead of the Pi 3.5mm jack.
Great sound, no clicks and pops.
There are a couple of cons though:
This device is wide so it blocks adjacent sockets on the Pi (like RJ45 and USB). I can afford to lose a USB socket so not a problem for me otherwise you will need a fly lead.
With LibreElec/Kodi the USB audio has to be manually selected in the system settings which turns off HDMI audio.
When switching between audio and video, I have to change the system settings to get the audio to the correct device.
I can't comment on durability yet.
Overall, very satisfied: good price, arrived on time, works perfectly without any noticable loss of audio quality and comes sensibly packaged (compact enough to fit in a letterbox, but protected by strong foam). The box was tricky to open neatly, but it's not as if I intended to keep it.
My only real criticism is that the shape/ size of it can block off other USB ports. Thankfully I have a few USB extension cables, but is a small inconvenience.
I don't have a cheap setup 1y old spent around £1700 on components but the on board asus HD audio is truly terrible I was so close to sending back the headset then I thought I'd give this a try, so pleased that did only downside there's no kind of amplification so you tend to be at around 80% volume compared to needing only 40% volume using the on board audio jacks and you can only pick between the the 2 lowest MHz eather cd or dvd quality no studio
It arrived super quickly (much sooner than the predicted date) and came really nicely packaged. Perhaps over-packaged - it certainly feels and was presented as a premium product.
As expected when plugged in it Just Works (windows 10). I predict it will work fine on Linux also (not tested it yet though). Sound quality is great, construction is sturdy, looks like it should last forever.
It also works fine across remote desktop with Teams, Zoom, skype etc - you just need to make sure you select the USB devices for input/output. Very happy with it.
