The Raspberry Pi has an on-board audio jack, which is super handy for all kinds of sound effects and speech, just plug and go! However, for when you want better audio for music playback,This X350 USB audio card can greatly improve the sound quality and volume.
You can DIY a external speaker using the 4pin speaker cable (you can found cable in the package box), and control the speaker via the on-board button.
In additonal, you can use it on the desktop computer, you only use one USB cable to connect the desktop computer and X350, and insert earphone into the X350, then you can enjoy the high quality sound.

X350 use CM119A chip from c-media;
1.Is it possible to use both the onboard microphone and an external microphone at the same time (2 audio input channels at the same time)?
Answer: Sorry, it is not possible to use both the onboard microphone and an external microphone at the same time, but if you need to use two microphone, you can consider to use two X350 audio board to stack on and under your raspberry pi to use it.(actually we do not test it, you need to test it yourself, thank you!)
2.How to setup and use X350 board?
Answer: Please refer to here and try it on Raspbian.
