Unfortunately, I threw out all the packaging after I determined that it
works. They cost $39 and have builtin headphone and mic volume controls.
There is also a USB adaptor, but I have not been able to get that to
work with skype. In fact, I had to plug the mic plug directly into the
mic jack at the rear of the computer to get the mic to work with skype.
I also had to remove pulseaudio modules to be able to adjust the volume.
With pulseaudio gone alsamixer seems to work well.
