Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use a headset made by another manufacturer with my USB-C Audio Adapter?
Do you have a Stereo microphone input USB sound card?
While the USB-C AUDIO ADAPTER only has a Mono 3.5 microphone input and stereo speaker/headphone output, the Andrea USB-SA, USB-MA, EDU-USB and USB-UNIV do offer a stereo microphone 3.5mm input as well as a 3.5mm stereo speaker/headphone output.
I have my USB-C Audio Adapter attached to a USB hub and when I use the headphones, I hear noise like static in the background.
It is recommended that you plug your USB-C Audio Adapter directly into one of your computer’s USB ports as electronic noise from the other devices will cause static.
Can I use 2 headsets at the same time?
Yes, you can plug both a computer headset with pink and green plugs into the corresponding color-coded ports on the USB-C Audio Adapter adapter and a mobile headset with a single black TRRS (Shared Audio) plug into the center black port of the USB-C Audio Adapter. Both headsets will function simultaneously.
Can I use 2 microphones at the same time?
This is not a common application, but the answer is yes. One microphone would need to have a standard 3.5mm two or three pole plug that would plug into the pink port on the USB-C Audio Adapter The other microphone would need to have a 3.5mm four pole TRRS (Shared Audio) plug such as on our SG-110M Mobile Shotgun Microphone or one of Andrea’s mobile headsets such as the EDU-455M. This microphone would plug into the black port of the USB-C Audio Adapter. Both microphones must supply a mic-in signal.
What is the difference between the USB-C Audio Adapter and the EDU-USB?
The EDU-USB has a pink port and green port and can only be used with a computer headset having a pink microphone plug and a green speaker plug. The USB-C Audio Adapter has these same ports but it also has an additional TRRS (Shared Audio) port for use with mobile headsets having a single black plug. So, the USB-C Audio Adapter will work with both dual plug and single plug headsets. The EDU-USB has a standard USB type connection and the USB-C Audio Adapter uses a USB-C connector with an optional USB-A adapter for computers with standard USB ports.
Can I use two headphones at the same time?
Yes, one headphone can be plugged into the green port and the other into the black port of the USB-C Audio Adapter and both headphones will hear the audio.
Where do I go to download the drivers for Windows?
The USB-C Audio Adapter is a plug and play device and as such the required drivers are supplied by Windows.
Is the USB-C Audio Adapter compatible with Windows 10?
Yes, the USB-C Audio Adapter is a plug and play device and is compatible with Windows 10 and higher.
Will the USB-C Audio Adapter work with older computers that do not have a USB-C port?
Yes, simply use the USB-A adapter that is included with the USC-C Audio Adapter
