Headset sound changed?


Im using the Razer Electra V2 analog headset, which provide virtual 7.1 surround sound. Im currently using a laptop, which owns only one 3.5mm jack that is for both headphones & mic. So for the mic to work, I had to buy a as small device that connects both the headphones wire and the mic wire into a usb.

This is the one I got:

It worked. But I have a question about the device. It says that this device makes 5.1 sound effect. So does the device ruin the virtual 7.1 surround sound of the headphones?

If yes, is there a solution?

Thanks for your time!
