Razer Audio/Mic Splitter Adapter for Headsets - Razer United States

Audio/Mic Splitter Adapter for Headsets

Some of our Razer headsets are specifically designed for use on-the-go with music players, smartphones and newer computers that use only a single port for both audio output and microphone input. The Audio/Mic Splitter Adapter enables those headsets to be used on PCs outfitted with separate ports for the audio and microphone. Now you can voice chat with team-mates or smack talk enemies as you hear the electrifyingly heart-pumping audio of your game.

Microphone enabled for PC gaming

For those that have a desktop PC or laptop that uses separate audio output and microphone input ports, the Audio/Mic Splitter Adapter is designed to enable microphone input on the Razer Electra, Razer BlackShark, Razer Kraken Pro, Razer Moray+ and Razer Hammerhead Pro. Headsets using a combined audio and microphone jack can also be used with this Splitter.
 

Extension cable

Most gamers use the audio/microphone ports on the back of their PCs to keep cables tidy. The Audio/Mic Splitter Adapter can be attached to the back of your PC while providing a 1m/3.28ft-long extension cable that connects directly into a combined audio and microphone jack. That way, you can comfortably connect the headset to the PC without the hassle of switching cables behind your desk.

What is Surround Sound?


Surround Sound describes the method of channelling sound that envelops the user in a 360 degree arc, positioning sound sources accurately in relation to the user. This is especially useful in multiplayer first person shooters where proper sound placement can help you identify friends, foes and situations within the environment. Audio devices produce two types of surround sound: Discrete or virtual.



Discrete


Using multiple speakers in a system or multiple audio drivers in each ear cup of the headset, positioned at different angles, discrete surround sound lets gamers hear audio in realistic 3-dimensions as they would in real life.

Discrete surround sound makes for immersive gameplay as it accurately represents how your character perceives the audio of the game world.

See Razer Tiamat 7.1

Virtual


Virtual surround sound can be found primarily in headphones that use only two drivers and complex audio processing algorithms to simulate the effect of having multiple audio drivers.

These headsets utilize internal or external amps and software engines to divide surround sound audio into distinct, separate segments, effectively reproducing a surround sound spectrum with just 2 drivers.
