USB Sound Dongle

I've had a USB Sound Dongle for a few years. It works perfectly. However I've just bought another dongle proclaiming 3D 5.1 and that is OK on the headphones but the microphone just produces a rumbling sound - exchanging for another identical dongle gives the same result. Anyone suggest a dongle that will work with a standard headset with 3.5mm plugs as the original one seems to be no longer available.

I suspect the original dongle works OK with a stereo mic plug but the current crop may want a mono microphone plug whereas all headsets seem to be stereo plug fitted.
