The problem is that your microphone is generation feedback when the talk because you have the speaker volume turned up. Try lowering the volume. If this doesn't work I suggest you use a set of headphones and it will eliminate this problem completely.
Hope this helps. Bud

Why do people say they can't hear me when I call them?


Well, there's a bunch of reasons why that could be:

•You speak in a muffled/slurred voice that is difficult to understand when the listener is not looking at you
•Your phone's microphone is defective and need repair/replacement
•you have a case on the 5c that covers one or both of the microphones. There are two mics on the 5c: one that actually captures the intended audio and the other there listens for background noise. What the phone sends to the listener on the other end is a subset of the two microphone sources passed through a complex filter.
The "main" mic is on the bottom of the iPhone while the background sensing mic is on the rear housing between the camera and flash.
•you have debris/dirt in the microphone holes

I call my friend and i cannot hear her while she is talking.


There are two obvious reasons (and a number of not-so obvious ones) for this.
1. Have you got your sound on (and adjusted properly) ? You might have your sound turned down or off on your PC or just within Skype. To test if your sound is working, try making a test call using the Skype test call facility.
2. Your friend's microphone may not be working, they may not have one or its sensitivity in Skype may be turned down or it may be 'muted'. Ask to check that her microphone is not muted. Ask her to make a test call on Skype and adjust her microphone sensitivity so that she can hear herself sensibly.

On my version of Skype the test call has appeared in 'contacts' but now it is accessible from the menu at the top left of the window from the call > audio settings menu/page. You can change your volume, microphone and speaker sensitivity settings on that page. You may have a different version of Skype of course.

Cannot hear my voice in microphone


These instructions are for Skype 4.2 for Windows or below. Before continuing, we strongly recommend that you upgrade to the latest version. For Skype 5.0 and above, refer to these instructions. If you're not sure which version of Skype you're using, it's easy to find out.
If the person you are talking to in a Skype-to-Skype call cannot hear you there are a number of steps you can take in order to help you set up your system correctly so that others can hear you.

Try calling Echo123. If you can hear your own recorded voice then your playback device (headphones, speakers, etc) and microphone are set up correctly and the problem might stem from low internet bandwidth, or that the person you are calling has not set up their sound devices properly.
If you cannot hear your own voice in Echo123 check that your microphone is on.

Test Echo123 again to see if the microphone now works..


THANKS.
If none of these steps work you might need to adjust your computers sound setup. Have a look at our Sounds Setup Guide.

Also check out our Troubleshooter for more help with common sound setup issues.

HP laptops built in mic sound is messed up.


Check the windows audio settings from the bottom right , right click , select adjust audio properties , and make sure your microphone is set to it's highest levels , the screech can be caused by feedback so turning down your speakers may help with this. Skype also has audio configuration settings of their own , check the audio settings on skype and configure as required , doesn't sound like a hardware fault tbh

I am having Skype audio problems. My students could always hear loud background noises. When I checked the net for some ways to solve it, I found...


Its most likely the microphone you use. Try buying a logitech webcam instead of the one you are using. I prefer the Logitech 9000.

Whistling background noise with Samson C01U USB condenser mic


Welcome to the world of STUDIO microphones. Super quality BUT you must have a studio to use them. You can't have any local speaker playing into them. You often use headphones lest your monitor speakers will feedback. At the high frequency capability of these mics, you can fry your amps with oscillations above what you can hear!
