USB-C Headsets For Mac
Explore the newest generation of Apple compatible microphone USB-C headsets featuring a Type-C connector that are compatible with Thunderbolt 3 enabled MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac and Mac mini computers.
Headsets With Mic For USB-C Ports
Above are a few Apple friendly microphone equipped headset and earbud recommendations for modern Macs that have a Thunderbolt 3 / USBC port. They're ideal for Apple dication, Siri speech recognition, VOIP, FaceTime, Zoom and Skype teleconferencing, or for music and audio playback.
On-Ear USB-C Headsets With Microphone For Mac
With conventional styling like over the head headphones, these feature larger earcups and a boom microphone. Ideal mic headsets can feature large, quality drivers for great bass response and music playback and deliver crisp voice conversations. Most will want a dual-cup stereo headset, though for business uses, some may prefer a monophonic single earcup design so they can keep an ear free for coworker or handheld phone handset conversations.
In-Ear USB-C Earbuds With Inline Mic For Mac
As an alternative to full-size over the head headsets with a built-in mic, we're seeing quite a few new earbuds with an in-line microphone on the cable that feature a Type-C USB-C connection. Not only are they Mac compatible, but they work with a lot of smarphone brands that are starting to use USB-C as the preferred connector instead of a 4-Pole TRRS 1/8th inch analog plug that has been popular the past few years.
Converting A USB-A To USB-C Microphone Headset
If you already have an older USB headset, it has a rectangular Type-A USB plug on it. With a low-cost adapter costing only 5 or 10 bucks, you CAN convert the older microphone headset for Mac use on more modern Thunderbolt 3 capable Macintosh systems. Remember: The Type-C connector on recent Mac's speak both Thunderbolt3 and USB 3.1 protocols out of a single port. And USB 3.1 Gen 2 is backwards compatible with all your older USB 1.1, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 Apple compatible USB peripherals and gadgets. A tiny adapter can help you bridge USB-C to the established USB-A form-factor device if need be.
