Read my post in this thread

here's the bottom line

If your Mac has an audio input port (or the dual purpose port per above), it's is a Line-In port, *not* a mic in port.

The audio input on the Mac requires a microphone that has it's own power source i.e. a Powered Microphone to operate properly.

Here's what you may need to make the Mic work

or an iRig

However, I would suggest picking up a USB headset instead.

Does your headset provide powered Mic output or line level output?
