    I have the same problem. Came looking for a solution. I just threw the box out the other day when someone told me how bad my sound was, so I tested in a video clip. They were right!

If you have another Mic I would use that. Otherwise I don't know how to solve this, check out this page though http://support.microsoft.com/kb/921334

Under cause there is something about disturbances by monitor, router, televesions and speakers. Try getting your camera away from other things and see if the audio straightens out.

Hello,
Is the microphone built into this webcam? If it is are you using this as the microphone while in Skype? If you open Skype and go to options and then tools you can select which microphone that Skype uses. Please update with answers so I can help further.

Use on laptop creates noise & frozen picture 4 person talking to


Its not due to the laptop, the other person is viewing you on the internet (Yahoo/Msn etc) so the Video might get frozen sometimes or may be a lot many times depending on the bandwidth or the server load.

The voice is due to the microphone you are using, you can use microphone with noise reduction technology with some noise reduction utility.

Make sure that you have the Microphone pointed to your webcam within SKYPE. I know that with Ventrillo you need to set it up to see the device within the program. I would look for options within Skype.

My webcam works fine but the microphone crackles all the time


Normal 0 Two things can cause static.
First, If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing distortion and static. I recommend using a headset when videoing.
Second reason is, if you are using a laptop and have added an external microphone between the two it will cause distortion and static.
Not knowing the configuration of your computer makes it harder to analyze the problem.
So hope this is of some help. Bud

Logitech webcam with built-in microphone and notebook premium headset


dear fixya,

greetings.

thank you for your e-mail. however, i decided not to use the headset anymore since my webcam has already built-in microphone. i think eventhough i will use the headset, the problem regarding the noise during conversation will not go away. i think think is really the part of on-line chatting.

thank you and more power to fixya team.

sincerely,

babesky

Mic noise


Hi manolopzo,

there is some pormenors that we can't never forget: see the record level of your mic and the distance between the mic and the speakers. if the distance is litle and the record level is high, you'll always have that feedback sound.
