One of the common issues is selecting your input device. Most users have two microphones; one is the PC mic and the other is headset mic.
HOW TO FIX - If you want to use a headset mic to speak, make sure to select it in the dropdown menu.
Due to the proximity effect, your mic will get closer to the sound source which increases the disturbance.
HOW TO FIX - The simple fix to not sound too bassy is to move the mic a little further away. If the distance between the mic and the low-frequency sound source increases, the bass sound reduces.
HOW TO FIX - The simple step is to move closer to your mic to reduce the room sound.
It increases the volume of your voice, and the room noise will be at bay. Move closer to the mic until you find the right balance of desired sound.
Bassy vibrations are another common microphone problem. Some of the microphones have built in pass filter options which removes the issue.
HOW TO FIX - If you don’t have a mic with a built-in filter, then buy a shock mount. This can help you reduce unwanted rumble as they absorb the vibrations.
Your loud breathing can perfectly ruin the flow when you speak about an important issue. Don’t worry, It is nothing to be ashamed of.
HOW TO FIX - Although there is no quick fix to solve this issue, you can work on your mic control. Move a little away from the mic and breathe in!
Microphone not working on your Mac? Follow these steps:
