External microphone on newer MacBook Pros

Ever had the need to connect an external microphone to a MacBook Pro and realized that the laptop in question only have a single 3.5mm mini jack port, and require a TRRS connector?

The solution seems to be to get a Sennheiser PCV 07 Y-splitter. I only had luck if I also, concurrently, had a pair of headphones hooked up to the headphone port.

This may or may not also work on other Mac laptops such as the MacBook and MacBook Air.


  1. It turns out that a PCV 05 ostensably for PC works as well. You'll need to connect a normal headset with separate TRS connectors for mic and speakers to get OS X to recognize the external mic, and then switch out the mic plug for your real mic.

  2. Large diaphragm condenser microphones are recommended for home studios, mainly because they pick up audio very, very accurately.

  3. This is a logical step in the evolution of video calling between Apple devices. To test this I called my laptop using the iPhone 4 and configured the facetime app.Click here

  4. OLG has also deployed digital gaming machines with pre-determined outcomes based mostly on a bingo or pull-tab sport, initially branded as "TapTix", which visually resemble slot machines. Nevada is the one 온라인카지노 state that has no significant restrictions in opposition to slot machines each for private and non-private use. In New Jersey, slot machines are solely allowed in hotel casinos operated in Atlantic City.
