iMac 2012 Microphone jack?

Hi, long time lurker, first time poster..

I would like to purchase a 27 inch iMac as soon as it is released. However, I noticed that it seems to only have one headphone port. Now my question is, how would you go about connecting a gaming headset which uses two audio jacks, one for output and one for input, to this beautiful machine.

The Apple Iwires range isn't cheap, and I'm sure you can find something a little more competitively priced elsewhere, but they do make splitters for just such purposes.

Wireless would be another option too...I've used a wireless headset with my Imac and it worked fine.

USB to audio adapter

I think you'll actually need something with an audio in to USB type adapter. The iWire cables are just splitters, but I don't think they are input devices. It seems like the iMac will take audio in, but perhaps only with Apple style headphones with a mic. If you don't want to use a headphone/mic set that has one cable (sounds like yours has 2 cables), then you'll need something like this: USB to Audio out/mic
