    Hello. I'm sorry if this is in the wrong section.

    I'm using an iMac. I recently bought a Logitech headset but I can't seem to get the microphone working on Skype. The headset has 2 outputs; of course one is for the mic. I don't want to use the built-in mic of iMac, I have to use the one on the headset. But I can't get it working from neither the System Preferences>Sound nor on the preferences section of Skype. Can anybody help me about this please?

    Did it come with drivers? I'd probably install those first.

    No, unfortunately it didn't come with a driver. I read somewhere there could be an extra piece for the microphone outputs to make them work on Macs, though I couldn't find such a piece.

    Which model did you buy? Does it have audio jack connections or USB? Here is a list of Logitech headsets. Click the box to show Mac compatible models.
