That the problem is with audio playback implies that the difficulty is with sound coming out, not sound going in. Your mic should be in the clear.

This problem has cropped up before. Take a look and see if you can find a solution that works for you in this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=4526841

hey thnx for the link man, turns out only the sound devices needed to be configured/selected in the skype options (yes its as simple as that) :)
all i did was selected the corrct device/driver from the list and it worked like a charm
