I looked into this issue in some detail and eventually came up with a great solution - the Focusrite 2i2!

Far from being the wrong thing, the Focusrite works brilliantly with FCP7, in fact it works so well, I am kicking myself for not picking one up sooner! I am now able to monitor my audio directly from the timeline, both through my new studio speakers and through the headphones. The Focusrite has a nice chunky volume knob for the main speaker output and the layout means that the box can sit discretely on my desk, where a mixer might dominate completely.

The Focusrite has 2 audio inputs, phantom powering my v/o mic and now I can record v/o direct to the FCP time line with no perceptible audio lag and at proper volume levels. My previous USB mic seems to mash the audio level, requiring me to add about 130% gain in the FCP v/o tool. The clarity of the recording is great, so it is doing the job right out of the box. Could not be happier!
