View Full Version : Horrible Mic Sound from Laptop

Hi everyone.

Okay so I just bought a new MSI A6200 and decided to try a video call. But sadly my microphone quality is horrible. Its a built in mic, and the receiver of the call said I sounded like I was underwater. I have tried messing with the sound options in the recording devices settings area. I've tried setting the level to +20.0dB and +30.0dB yet I do still sound as if I am underwater, plus it's also faint. Also have turned the mic sound to 100 with both settings. I've also tried changing enhancement settings and still nothing.

Can anyone help with this please?

You would expect the quality to be half decent in this day and age...

Maybe it's just a cheap microphone, maybe you have some weird software settings. Maybe the person you were talking to had an "underwater" effect turned on for their settings (Realtek is good at doing this kind of thing, why anyone would use it I have no idea)
