To re-iterate, you CANNOT plug the 3.5MM jack into your Mac 'mic input' and have it work. It's not a mic input, it's a line level input.

The Line OUT will work for standard headphones / headsets.

The Line IN is a line-level input and will NOT work for headsets with Mics. You have to have a powered Mic as that input does not supply any amplification.

You need to get either

a) A USB headset

b) get a Griffin iMic which will take both of the 3.5MM jacks and convert them to USB.
