To start the conversation again, simply ask a new question. We bought a MacBook Pro 15" Retina a couple of weeks ago. We wanted to use it the same way as our current PC laptop: hook up an external camera via BlackMagic Shuttle Express Thunderbolt through the Thunderbolt port , hook up an external Sennheiser Freeport wireless microphone through the 3. The idea is to videotape an event, getting good quality audio from the presenter via the wireless microphone our space has big limitations in terms of using wired devices , and monitoring the audio through the headphones. This is a scenario and a set up where several PC units have worked perfectly well in the past. On the video they explain the plug of a regular microphone has 3 rings or pins, while the plug needed for the 3.

To start the conversation again, simply ask a new question. After recently buying a Neewer NW and setting it up, I plugged it into my what I believe to be a or model of the Mac Book Pro, only to see that it was received as headphones and under the output tab of my sound preferences. I don't believe there is anything wrong with the mic as I had also bought and hooked up a phantom power source. And then after all that, I plugged that adapter into my computer which accepted it as a headphone rather than a microphone. I do have a theory, that the FosPower Adapter only converts input signals and that the computer then thought of it as a headphone.
