Smart Upgrade for Headsets
The SB1 from Sharkoon is an external USB sound card that quickly and easily transforms a headset, with conventional 3.5mm stereo jacks or a 3.5 mm TRRS stereo jack, into a USB headset. Because the SB1 is compact enough to fit into any trouser pocket, you can always have your own sound card with you wherever you go – and enjoy your familiar sound settings from many other devices which have a USB connector. The SB1 is much more than just a USB adapter: Via the extra-large switches, the volume can be quickly adjusted, independently of the sound controls of computer software. Likewise, a connected microphone can be quickly muted whenever necessary. And those who want to completely tune the sound as desired can do this, at the touch of a button, with the integrated hardware equalizer. For all these functions, the SB1 does not require a driver, and can be operated with Windows, Linux, Mac OS and PlayStation 4.
Also on Board: Hardware Equalizer and Surround Effects
The hardware equalizer has eight presets to alter the headset’s sound. These can be selected with the push of a button, providing modified highs and lows and, in addition, appropriate virtual surround modes. For those who would like to be a little more specialized, a resource-efficient, user-friendly software is available for Windows systems, offering additional virtual surround effects tuned to games, films and music.
