Generally speaking the mic jacks on Macs are for cosmetic purposes only. 
You can't plug your average headset mic into them and use them, they 
need a pre-amp or something.

The easiest remedy seems to be using a USB jack such as the Griffin 
iMic, I use one and I am very happy with it. Last time I looked I think 
they were about $20 here in the US.
