    I have a macbook and are getting the new iMac. I want to use the same headphones for both machines at the same time.

    Ideally I would like to plug the macbook's audio out into the iMac's microphone, and the a headset into the iMac respectively.

    The problem is, my headset is 3.5mm and the new iMac only has 1 3.5mm port instead of 2 like older iMacs.

    I've tried a USB adapter to give me additional 3.5mm jacks, but they're very static sounding and generally unreliable.

    Does anyone know of a way to send audio out from my macbook to my iMac and have it go to my headphones plugged into the iMac?

    BlueTooth may resample down the sound, so if you were to play WAV, AIFF or Apple Lossless, they may not sound as clean. Maybe try a MB>HDMI>ThunderBolt>iMac configuration?
