      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.

      Just what I needed

      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.

              Performs exactly as product description states. This is my second because I "loaned" out my first and the borrower became "attached" to it. Apparently he liked it too.

                  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.

                    Comments about Griffin Technology iMic USB Audio Interface:

                    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

                                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 this to DJ small mobile gigs. Despite it's thin plastic shell, it works great! No complaints.

                                          This is a great addition to my setup. I have a new thunderbolt MacBook Pro and the audio in port has been taken away on this model. I Also have a sound board with USB. The iMic allows me to run audio in and out for Skype interviews on one USB, while recording into Logic or Pro Tools directly off my sound board's USB without any interference. This was a great find.

                                            I purchased a pair of these so I could do a mix-minus Skype setup on my Macbook Air for a podcast. They work like a charm for this application.

                                                  The iMic is a very easy to use device when recording audio or when the onboard soundcard either needs to be avoided or is damaged. The device installed in minutes and worked flawlessly.
