Currently Being ModeratedApr 14, 2009 6:55 AM (in response to TWH3)Regarding the Plantronics, your iMac does not have a microphone-level audio input (no Mac model has had any sort if mic input in several years), so that's why some sort of adapter such as the Griffin iMic is necessary to use a standard microphone.iMac 2.8 Core 2 Duo 24" 4GB ATI 2600, Mac OS X (10.5.6), PowerMac G5 2.0GHz DP, Dell w/ Windows Vista Unlimited SP1
Currently Being ModeratedApr 20, 2009 6:30 AM (in response to TWH3)I'm avoiding buying anything else to use my iMac and had the same problem. I have PC headset with mic and headphones and also a Motorola bluetooth headset, neither worked how they should, no mic function:
I can use the pc headphones that I already had (just didn't input the mic jack part), and the iMac built-in mic together as I chat.
Just go to System Preferences and make the Sound settings for Output to built-in Headpones and Input to Internal Microphone -select "Use ambient noise reduction.
Its a get-around, but it works.iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
