Just a heads up from an audiohead:

The signal chain boils down like so:

Mic -> XLR -> phantom power -> XLR to 3.5mm conversion -> 3.5mm jack.

My point here is - many laptops, even some desktops ship with a combo headphone/mic input, meaning you'd have to tie up your only jack for listening/recording with recording along. For those without an additional outboard soundcard or additional mic inputs, this won't work so well.

Cheers!

The Griffin iMic can take care of it and is currently on sale.

Yes, for interface purposes. I worry a bit about audio quality, as unbalanced lines (3.5mm stereo duals) vs balanced (XLR) are extra susceptible to the kind of interference home podcasters tend to use. It's def an overworry on my part, but I'd recommend finding a better outboard XLR soundcard with phantom power, so you can get some better digital conversion on the signal.

TLDR: I personally, after having owned at least 6 mixers and 5 outboard sound cards; do not enjoy 3.5mm connectors. Staticy, prone to failure; and I've ever only had one XLR die on me.

Is this ideal? Looks like it sounds bad, or is this the only alternative to buying an audio interface?

Agreed.

I only use the iMic when recording from skype using a "mix/minus" setup. I personally would not buy/use the deal posted, but the iMic does come in handy.

When recording in person, I use ATR2100 xlr mics into a zoom h4n. Sound is the cleanest out of the 5 different setups I've used. I try to record in person as often as possible to avoid using anything 3.5
