Re: Voyager 520 headset on a macbook, trying to use skype
Have you gone into system preferences/sound.input/output settings? try making a free test call, and you can play around with all your settings that way...also helps to keep the volume turned down on your mac, and just adjust it using your headset.

First check that your isight camera is working by going to applications and selecting the application photo booth. If your isight is working you will see yourself in the photobooth window. Now if it is working open skype, first check that you have the latest version of skype by going to the skype menu and then check for updates. Once you have the latest version go to the skype menu again then preferences then under the video make sure that the enable Skype video checkbox is checked and you can check the start my video automatically checkbox as well. Then close the preferences window. Hope this helps.
copy and paste the following link into your browser
click the "Download Now" button (it's green)
once it has downloaded, depending on the way your MacBook Air is configured, it may start the installation automatically. If it doesn't, then open your downloads folder, and double click the Skype installer (named (Skype_2.*****.dmg the *'s represent numbers) and follow the instructions on screen
be sure that no other application uses the isight. check on the applications that are open on your dock and see if anyone of then is using it, just quit the application and the isight will surely work again on skype.
It sounds like you're asking whether headphones are necessary to the Skype experience.
You don't absolutely *need* headphones (or a microphone or a headset that has both), but if you don't use headphones, then your Mac external microphone might pick up the sound of your conversation and you might get unpleasant levels of feedback.
If this doesn't answer your question, please write back with the following information:
1. Your Skype version (click Skype --> About Skype) 2. Your model of Mac 3. Whether you are having problems with your audio - On Skype only? - On other applications? - In general? 4. Whether you have tried clicking on "Skype Test Call" - Whether you could hear the voice giving you instructions
I had this problem, too - but I'm not sure how I fixed it:-)
1. Check Skype options: Skype :: Preferences :: Video
Did you activate Skype video?
Can you select the iSight camera?
After yes for the above: Do you see yourself concentrating?
If not:- Try restting the pram http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1379.
- check for skype updates
- I remember some stuff regarding iSight problems, try searching for the following terms:

Hope some of these might help
