I also ended up looking for good solutions. Thunderbolt 2 supports 20 Gb/s. So it could provide enough reserves for a real usb 3 hub where every port could finally run 5 Gb/s = 640 MB/s. As a single SSD already exceeds the speed of a USB 3 connection, we should not put them through a USB 3 Hub bottleneck to not enforce slowing the transfer rates down. ...

I looked at the second guide and it's a much simpler process than the method suggested there. Do the following, it works.

Make sure you've selected the Plantronics device in the mic chooser window in the Hangouts settings once the Hangout has begun (gear icon.) Change the default setting (which should be the internal mic on the Mac if there is one:) To Plantronics: (I have the Blue Snowball connected in this screen cap.)

In addition to system_profiler SPUSBDataType (suggested by @kjs), you can also use ioreg -p IOUSB: $ ioreg -p IOUSB +-o Root <class IORegistryEntry, id 0x100000100, retain 10> +-o EHCI Root Hub Simulation@1A,7 <class IOUSBRootHubDevice, id 0x100000227,$ | +-o HubDevice@fa100000 <class IOUSBHubDevice, id 0x10000027a, registered, $ | | ...
