Might not be a lot of difference. What exactly are you trying to record?

I think I see the problem but can't confirm it without knowing the exact model of mic. If it has the connector that looks like a headphone jack then you will need either a mic pre amp or a device such as the iMic from Griffin technologies. The problem arises because the Mac 's jack is looking for a higher level signal than these mics generate.
