The iMic USB Audio Interface from Griffin Technology allows you to connect microphones and other input devices to your iBook, PowerBook, PowerMac or other Mac or PC system using a USB interface. It supports both mic and line level inputs via a selectable switch, and provides line-level output for connecting speakers or headphones.

Additionally, the iMic is great for home studio recording and podcasting and is compatible with modern hardware like GarageBand, iMovie, and Final Cut Pro.

      super easy to use microphone input

      this was the 2nd time around I purchased a Griffin iMic to add a microphone input for webinars and online videos. The setup requires no drivers and the iMic's sound quality is excellent.

      I wanted to be able to use my headphones frequently on my iMac without having to constantly plug and unplug them. With the iMic I plug it into a USB port and my headphones into it and all I have to do is switch the output in System Preferences. (shortcut directly to Sound Prefs is Option F10 - the sound on and off key) Very convenient.So far that's all I use it for. And it works. If it goes south I'll be back to talk about it.

      Great microphone amplifier for Macs

          Comments about Griffin Technology iMic USB Audio Interface:

          Because Macs have a high level linein input instead of a low level microphone input (or no audio input at all), an amplifier is needed. This is the most popular USB microphone amplifier for the Macs and for good reason. Easy to use and works well. Just remember to select this unit as the input in Sound under Preferences (and in your program, such as Skype, if needed).

              Comments about Griffin Technology iMic USB Audio Interface:

              I switched from a PC to a Mac for broadcasting an Internet Radio Show. I have a headphone set with attached microphone that has two 1/8 inch plugs, rather than USB. Since the Mac cannot accommodate the two plugs, I bought the imic to allow me to connect to the Mac via the USB connector. It solved my dilemma and allows me to use the headphone/mic set I really like, rather than having to buy a new one!

                                  What were they thinking to eliminate the Audio input on the new iMac?? This USB solution gets around that issue perfectly. Don't spend more than you have to. This works fine for both in and outs, plus leaves the headphone output available for monitoring headphones... We use this solution with recording from a soundboard via Audacity.

                                    I originally purchased Griffin's iMic as a workaround. My MacBook headphone input had a broken mini plug stuck in it. Could not get it out and the cost of the repair was cost prohibitive. I found the iMic usb so I could plug in my headphones. It saved me hundreds of dollars and it proved to be useful in getting in and out of the DAW on my mac as well. No latency problems just a clean simple in and out audio interface.

                                    Very affordable alternative to higher priced interfaces. Ideal for podcasting or minor voice over work because of ease of use. Some static is present depending how the cable is positioned and it feels cheap.

                                        This is a great adapter to plug a headset into the Mac. Headsets are lighter and softer on the ears. It's just plug and play. I use it for Google G-Mail chat and Skype chats. Conversations both ways are crystal clear. You can also use it to input devices into it. It just does what it is supposed to do quickly. 10 second installation!. Remember to select your input source and output at G-Mail settings and at your system preference panel

                                          The salesman at another store told me such a device was impossible, yet here it is. No signal noise, plug and play, couldn't be better.

                                                I was quite disappointed that the new MacBook Pro with Retina (unlike the MacBook Pro) came without a line-in port.

                                                This filled the gap perfectly.

                                                    I use the iMic to record Skype or Google Handout interviews for our podcast. It was recommend by Cliff Ravenscraft over at Podcast Answer Man, and is the perfect solution. I use it with my Macbook Pro and mixer in a mix minus setup.
