Works after some adjustments to the settings... But Took some trial and error to get rid of choppy sound. Works well BUT a VERY annoying glitch that happens sometimes when disconnecting and connecting headphones is a sudden, very loud high pitched tone. I'm almost scared to use this at loud volumes because I would like to keep my hearing, and you never expect the glitch to happen.
