1: Where's the mic?
2: Is the little "soundcard" required?
Newegg says "Also included in the package is a remarkable little USB soundcard with Virtual 7.1 surround, extremely suitable for gaming, music and movies.
Supports 3D positional. The Icemat Siberia USB Soundcard is a small, yet powerful full surround soundcard."
I'm referring to the icemat 10062 listed here: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16826249004
