I have sound problems with skype, speech cutting and a lot of noises
Every time i used skype to make phone calls there is a terrible echo and speech cuts all the time ., i am able to hear one word and i miss 3 or more words
The person I cannot hear me when talking, but I can hear him talking. I have very good headset phone

Re: i have sound problems with skype, speech cutting and...
If you right click on the realtek audio manager at the bottom right hand corner of yr screen, then hit the microphone tab, you might be able to run 'acoustic echo cancellation'. otherwise, turn up your microphone a bit, and make sure you have enough bandwidth, ie your not running torrents or have msn messenger sending or receiving a file or something (or indeed running at all, it is sucky bloatware hoho). try turning the pc sound down a bit and the skype volume up a bit. otherwise we just have to wait for skype to improve, as i'm sure it will do as more people use the service. good luck.. chris firstname.lastname@example.org
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

When using services like Skype or VoipBuster the audio is compressed. Depending on the quality of the internet connection the audio quality will be different. If you or the person on the other side of the line has a bad internet or bad WiFi connection, the compression of the audio will be much stronger, resulting in a worse audio quality.
Another problem that occurs many times is an audio feedback. If you, or the person you're talking to uses a microphone and computer speakers, the audio coming out of the computer speakers can be captured by the microphone and be amplified again. It forms a feedback loop and creates an echo. The best thing to do is that you both use a good quality headset instead of putting the audio over computer or iPad speakers.
For your iPad, you can buy the Apple EarPods. They are affordable and contain a microphone to make Skype calls with your iPad.
You own a iPad, which is a device of high quality. If the person you're talking to has a crappy phone or bad hardware, the quality will be bad. The advice then is that that person buys a device that has a higher quality than he or she is using now.
The power screw is the correct way to adjust the problem you describe. If you have attempted to adjust it as instructed in the user manual and have not had satisfactory results, there may be a problem with the clippers. Most Wahl clippers have a 1 year or longer warranty. You can call Wahl for warranty service at 1-800-334-4627
The Camera and Audio setups are unrelated in both Windows and Skype.
Please check your Windows Audio devices volume settings and specifically the Microphone settings: it appears to be disabled or the volume level set much too low. The windows settings overrides the settings in Skype (or in other words, Skype volume settings are a subset of the Windows volume settings).
Check that Skype audio is setup properly after starting Skype:
Tools -> Options -> Audio Settings
-> select your required devices and volume levels.
During this ajustment process, make free calls to Skype 'Echo / Sound Test Services".
Hope it helps! Let me know how you go!
Did you try using a different headset just to check if the probem is with your headset or wuth the skype connection? by the way if you have time send me a message on my yahoo messenger so we can tak about this problem of yours...
I had a similar problem, the solution was as simple as not playing your voice through the speakers. The problem sounds like one of feedback. There are companies that sell phones that hook up to your usb port and will not cause this type of problem. Another solution may be lowering the volume on your mic.
The echo is unfortunately a common problem with the Motorola H3 headset. I have one of those sitting in a drawer somewhere because it echoed with every phone I paired it to. After buying the H3 and experiencing the echo, I read reviews. I should have read the reviews first. Lots of people get the echo and there doesn't appear to be any fix. I guess that's why I got the headset, a leather case, and a car charger in a kit for just $20.
Audio Compression Algorithm Speech signals are sampled, quantized and compressed before they are packeted and transmitted to the other end. For IP Telephony, speech signals are usually sampled at 8000 samples per second with 12-16 bits per sample. The compression algorithm plays a large role in determining the Voice Quality of the reconstructed speech signal at the other end. The SPA supports the most popular audio compression algorithms for IP Telephony: G.711 a-law and µ-law, G.726, G.729a and G.723.1. The encoder and decoder pair in a compression algorithm is known as a codec. The compression ratio of a codec is expressed in terms of the bit rate of the compressed speech. The lower the bit rate, the smaller the bandwidth required to transmit the audio packets. Voice Quality is usually lower with lower bit rate. However, Voice Quality is usually higher as the complexity of the codec gets higher at the same bit rate.
Silence Suppression The SPA applies silence suppression so that silence packets are not sent to the other end in order to conserve more transmission bandwidth. Instead, a noise level measurement can be sent periodically during silence suppressed intervals so that the other end can generate artificial comfort noise that mimics the noise at the other end using a CNG or comfort noise generator.
Packet Loss Audio packets are transported by UDP which does not guarantee the delivery of the packets. Packets may be lost or contain errors which can lead to audio sample drop-outs and distortions and lowers the perceived Voice Quality. The SPA applies an error concealment algorithm to alleviate the effect of packet loss.
Network Jitter The IP network can induce varying delay of the received packets. The RTP receiver in the SPA keeps a reserve of samples in order to absorb the Network Jitter, instead of playing out all the samples as soon as they arrive. This reserve is known as a Jitter Buffer. The bigger the Jitter Buffer, the more jitter it can absorb and the bigger the delay it can introduce. Therefore the jitter buffer size should be kept to a relatively small size whenever possible. If jitter buffer size is too small, then many late packets may be considered as lost and thus lowers the Voice Quality. The SPA can dynamically adjust the size of the jitter buffer according to the network conditions that exist during a call.
Echo Impedance mismatch between the telephone and the IP Telephony gateway phone port can lead to near-end echo. The SPA has a near end echo canceller with at least 8 ms tail length to compensate for impedance match. The SPA also implements an echo suppressor with comfort noise generator (CNG) so that any residual echo will not be noticeable.
Hardware Noise Certain levels of noise can be coupled into the conversational audio signals due to the hardware design. The source can be ambient noise or 60Hz noise from the power adaptor. The SPA hardware design minimizes noise coupling.
End-to-End Delay End-to-end delay does not affect Voice Quality directly but is an important factor in determining whether subscribers can interact normally in a conversation taking place over an IP network. Reasonable delay figure should be about 50-100ms. End-to-end delay larger than 300ms is unacceptable to most callers. The SPA supports end-to-end delays well within acceptable thresholds.
One of the PC magazines did an extensive drop test on the iPhone without breaking it, so your dropping it on the carpet didn't cause the problem.
Echos can be caused by communication with the cellular network, so you should verify the problem by trying the phone in your local ATT/Cingular store. You may also experience a time delay that you will notice if you call another phone close by where you can hear the live voice as well as the one on the phone.
Both of these problems are found in all cell phones, not just iPhone, BTW.
