Question: Microphone not being recognized

I have two pairs of headphones with microphones on them. For both of them the headphones are being recognized but microphones are not. I am wondering how I can fix this, thanks.


Also I have a Mid-2012 Macbook Pro with High Sierra 10.13.3

Answer:
Answer:

If you're talking about 12" Retina MacBooks, the forum area that you have posted in, their headphone jacks don't support the monaural analog audio input from the headphone jack. I assume that your headphones are mini phono jack analog headphones, like the ones that come with older iPhones and iPods.


USB headphones with microphones should be supported.
