    On my Macbook, what is this port between my USB's and my Headphone ports? It looks like a headphone jack, but the image above it is something I've never seen before. (Took me 3 months to begin to worry about it :))

    Just been staring intently at the side of my MB! I reckon it's two arrows pointing into a hole. But 2? Very odd :rolleyes:

    haha sorry, couldn't help myself with this reply.

    It's an audio line in port for your microphone, etc.

    Probably because a line in requires line level signal, which most microphones do no supply without running the mic through a pre amp of some kind.

    The solution is to use a USB mic or use a pre amp.
