Does anyone know if a similar product exists for the Mac?

The answer is yes. There is a program called Maven (available from several
places although I can't recall where I downloaded it from) and it is what
the Mac version of Cu-SeeMe uses for audio. It supports the ability to
connect to multiple users simultaneously (although you have to know their IP
address) and it works fairly well over medium speed modems (14.4 and 28.8).
The Power Mac native version particularly works well as it supports a better
compression scheme (GSM). Hope this info helps.
