Not really anything you can do about that. Some of the cheaper webcams do not have as good of audio quality. I would suggest buying a microphone.

I can't seem to get my microphone to work. Every other sound is working.


You do not say what sort of mic you have - if its a built in laptop mic, a standalone mic or one built into the webcam.
It would also be useful to know what your OS is and what chat program you want to use the mic in
However we can generalise and hopefully put you on the right track

Poor sound detection


Try going to my web cam, then when you see yourself go to File and then preferences then go to calling and devices and make sure that your mic shows as your mic, if that does not work then try your actual computer sound settings. I had some similar problems as well

No, you don't need to do anything more. That should do it. Logitech also has a webcam with a built in mic that would work for you as well.
