Archived - Mac Pro: Supported Microphones
This article describes microphones supported for use with Mac Pro computers.
The microphone input jack supports line-level input signals. A microphone is not provided in the accessory kit for these computers. The previously-available Apple PlainTalk microphone is not compatible with these computers - although the PlainTalk microphone supplies a line-level signal, it does not use a standard 3.5 mm stereo miniplug, and can't be used with these systems. There are various third-party line-level microphones available that are compatible with the audio line-in port on these units, as well as third-party USB microphones that may be used via a USB connection instead. Examples of devices that provide line-level input include CD players, cassette decks, self-powered microphones, and DVD players. Griffin Technology's iMic adapter allows the use of most mic-level sound input devices.
