In general, StarTech cables have been reliable and well-made, and this one is no exception. Thanks for the tip, I hope it.
With the Apple Macbook Air and an independent microphone, the microphone port does not work. You can find out more about TRRS, CTIA, or OMTP by looking them up. What a bizarre design decision Apple made to use the outside shield as the microphone input and the ground inside on the next ring. By looking at her, it is impossible to tell. The connector does not have a ground connection, so if you are just plugging in an independent microphone, this does not work. Assume that the ground connection for the headset comes from the ground of the headphones. Also, on the microphone side, it assumes that the tip of the female microphone connector maps to the Sleeve, as per the CTIA standard. But it doesn't. It is not possible to use it by itself if the ground is not mapped to Ring 2 on the microphone connector. The ground point between the microphone and the amplifier should therefore be connected correctly for CTIA, and this should be stamped on the product This agency. If you want to continue using the device with your gaming headset, make sure you first connect the mic and headphones to the adapter before connecting them to the computer. Seeing the mic only happens when it is pointed at the camera. Unfortunately, I did not like the quality of the mic input. Obviously, Startek is not to blame for all this. The whole thing is incredibly frustration.

It came with the new Xbox One controller with 3 buttons. I purchased it to use with the new controller. Connect the 5mm jack to a computer. While the microphone worked when plugged into a laptop, and a different headset (that did not require the adapter) worked when plugged into the controller, it didn't work for the microphone. In the process of deciding if I should get a new adapter or give this another try. Should I attempt to use this again, I will update this post. It seems Amazon listed this as an item that is not eligible for return for some reason. I was able to get my money back after I contacted.
A Sennheiser PC 37X headset I purchased is compatible with this adapter. My headset does not supply 5V power, but it does require a Phantom Plug to operate. Also, I was unaware that there is any type of power other than 48V phantom and that most devices will drive the microphones with 5V from the device. As I have been using an adapter with my MacBook and iPhone, it has worked flawlessly. There is no battery in the microphone whenever I connect it to an input which does not have phantom power. If the microphone was working with this adapter, then the adapter must have been sending 5V phantom power to the device. I read that some adapters aren't compatible with Macs or iPhones. There is a good chance that this model can do that! The Sennheiser PCV 07 is one of the few adapters that did what I needed from a trusted brand. If you find this review while searching for Sennheiser PCV 07, you have come to the right place. As an alternative, here is what you can do.

In my search for this converter, I found this other easy adapter that goes from It was a simple process of plugging my mic plug into the adapter and then the StarTech Y adapter to it.
