| br>57 wont drive the MBP headphone jack. Heck, I don't know if anything will without a crazy adapter, since they got rid of their line in jack, like the spiteful dolts Apple are.
If you can locate a 4 conductor breakout adapter so you can plug in a mic the same way you plug in a pair of earbuds with a built in mic, I am going to bet a battery driven mic like the kind AT and Sony make will be your best bet.
That sounds complicated and annoying to me.
I'd rather have the headphone jack be the headphone jack.
Then get a USB mic like the ones Blue, Samson, Apogee and a few others make.
Of course the problem with that is USB-C. Meaning you need an adapter.
What I used to do was plug in my Zoom H4N as an interface/microphone. br> br>
