I have a 2013 MacBook Pro Retina and I always used the EarBuds to talk on skype etc.. Suddenly it stopped working as the Audio Input. I still can listen to stuff, control the volume and everything else. The only problem is that It stopped capturing the microphone. I didn't change anything recently and this is how my sound settings are:

Can you give some tips on things to check? Thanks for any help


If you have not already, I would do a restart and as part of the restart clear the non-volatile RAM (NVRAM):

Hold down CommandOptionPRall at the same time starting before the first system boot chimes and letting them chime 3 times before releasing.

Worked for me when that happened.

  • try a different set of headphones / microphone... – Solar Mike May 15 '17 at 15:26
  • It was the first thing I tried. I thought my mic was broken, but it is not the case. – André Luiz May 15 '17 at 15:28
