Until the spell with split second leaves the stack, no player can cast a spell or activate a non-mana ability.

The spell can still be countered by something like Counterbalance
there are very few responses to Split Second
Counterbalance is one, Voidmage Apprentice would be another one

702.59a Split second is a static ability that functions only while the spell with split second is on the stack. “Split second” means “As long as this spell is on the stack, players can’t cast other spells or activate abilities that aren’t mana abilities.”
702.59b Players may activate mana abilities and take special actions while a spell with split second is on the stack. Triggered abilities trigger and are put on the stack as normal while a spell with split second is on the stack.
