I got a SteelSeries headset for Christmas and I plugged it into my MacBook Pro. The audio output works fine, but I am having issues with the audio input.
I saw this post which talked about some power issues to the microphone on the Mac Mini… I did not quite get what they were discussing, though.
I also found this link which says:
Some microphones require power on the stereo mini jack and may not work on Mac systems. Try to check for Mac compatibility when buying USB microphone sets. Unamplified PC microphones often won't work.
The SteelSeries FAQ says I need a USB sound card to use the microphone with a Mac.
Does this mean I can't use my headset because it needs power from the computer? If yes, is there a workaround?
Does anyone know of any VERY cheap sound cards?
Why doesn't my microphone work?
