Microsoft Audio Dock is an all-in-one speakerphone, dock, and charger with a compact design to save space on your desk. It has 4 different ports (HDMI, 2 USB-C, USB-A) with pass-through charging to give you more connections for your Windows 10/11 PC while charging it at the same time. The speaker provides great-sounding audio for Microsoft Teams meetings and calls, music, and more with push-button controls on top.

  • Power jack. The port is circular. It doesn’t have a raised imprint below it.

  • HDMI out port. Solid horizontal raised line.

Set up Microsoft Audio Dock

After you unpack your Microsoft Audio Dock, put it where you want on your desk. Leave your cables and cords out, so you can get to them easily. 

  1. Plug the power connector attached to the included power supply unit into the power jack on your Microsoft Audio Dock.

  2. Plug the USB-C connector on your Microsoft Audio Dock into the USB-C port on your computer.

  3. Do one or both of the following, depending on how many external displays you want to connect (1 or 2) and the type of video connection each display uses:

    1. HDMI connection. Take an HDMI cable and plug one end into the HDMI port on your external display and plug the other end into the HDMI port on your dock.

    2. USB-C. Take a USB-C cable and plug one end into the USB-C port that has the display icon above it on your Microsoft Audio Dock. Plug the other end into the video port (for example, HDMI or DisplayPort) on your external display. 
      If your video cable doesn't have the appropriate video connector (for example, HDMI or DisplayPort), you'll need to buy another cable or an adapter. For more info, go to Connect Surface to a TV, monitor, or projector or Troubleshoot connecting Surface to an external display.
      For more info about using multiple displays in Windows, see How to use multiple monitors in Windows.

  4. Plug your USB computer peripherals into the USB-A port or other USB-C port on your dock—depending on which kind of USB connection your peripheral uses. 
    Connect things like a mobile phone, USB flash drive, USB hard drive, and more.

  5. To use Microsoft Audio Dock as your speaker, select the Sound  icon in the system tray on your Windows 11 PC, choose Select a sound output (>), then select Microsoft Audio Dock.

  6. To use Microsoft Audio Dock as your microphone, select Start  > Settings > System Sound , then select Microsoft Audio Dock under Input.

  7. To adjust the volume while you’re listening to music or watching a video, press the Volume up or Volume down button on Microsoft Audio Dock.
