I was thinking about buying some Astro A10's, but the problem with this is they only have a single 3.5mm jack which would plug into the front of my pc. Many people say these front ports make the quality sound terrible which is something I want to avoid. Would buying a y splitter for 1x 3.5mm to 2x 3.5mm mic and audio be better in this situation for me, and also would this reduce the sound quality from both audio and microphone? Also if it does not, can someone recommend me a cheap one on amazon or something. Thanks

Yes. A poorly made/low quality Y-splitter can degrade the audio.

However, I am not sure that you need an adapter per se.

Reference:

Cables and splitters seem be included - note the listed cables.

Specs show two plugs: one TRS, one TRRS.

You need to match those plugs to the corresponding audio ports on your PC.
