      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.

                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.

                      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.

                                        My mac audio jack just stopped working, and I needed some backup plan to work. I bought the iMic, and it worked great right away. After a couple of weeks of use, I still can't find any cons to that product. It does what it's supposed to do, and do it good!

                                          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.
