Most microphones (especially those made for use in a computer) do not remove any background noise. This is usually done via software, but it might not be available on every app out there.

If you can't talk properly using your current mic, your best option might be getting a headset. Headsets have a less sensitive microphone, which will tend to pick up only your voice. If you have a bluetooth headset, you can use it on your computer by adding a bluetooth dongle.

Why is it suddenly way too quiet?


Try a different mic to see if problem follows. If yes then it is a setting. If not then the mic is bad and needs to be sent to mfg or get a new one.

Sometimes my AKG Perception 420 won't record properly, when played back it sounds like white noise with the faintest sound of what i'm trying to record in the background


All microphones have a signal to noise ratio. Basically defined as the level of desired sound to background noise (unwanted sound). Microphone phones also have self noise which should be considered when choosing a mic. There will be noise in every mic, some more audible than others. Condenser microphones require phantom power (48V). This can be supplied by mic prea
mps, mixers, and similar equipment. *Note that phantom power (mic pre amps) must be on or engaged, this can be specific to different types of equipment.
Troubleshooting:Has your microphone been dropped or exposed to moisture? Internal damage to your microphone will be hard to assess but this could possibly be the issue. Inspect the microphone cable, check for damages. Try using a another microphone cable-- preferably a new one. Next to check would be your mic's power supply. Make sure all connections are made properly (mic to cable to power supply). If you are using a mixer or pre amp with multiple inputs, test the mic on each input. (You should test by making recordings and comparing with each change to isolate possible causes). Also test the mixer or pre amp by slowly sweeping the input gain feature while recording an audible source such as singing into the microphone. Typically next in the audio recording chain would be your DAW (digital audio workstation) or computer, but problems with noise most likely precede this.
I could possibly provide more useful information if I know your exact setup.
Provided that you have your equipment setup properly, the microphone or mixer/preamp could possibly be damaged/malfunctioning. I suggest taking your equipment to a trusted repair shop, or if still under warranty, returning to the manufacturer for repairs or replacement.
Hope this helps

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

How can i eliminate the fuzz and get better quality in using my in built acer aspire 5335 microphone?


When it comes to built in pin mic's, there's nothing much you can do to force better quality out of inadequate hardware. When recording audio, the software you use might offer options to cut out background noise and fuzz. But you can't force better quality out of a pin mic.

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!

Background noise from webcam


I had a similar situation. I have another capture card installed on my computer. I disabled the onboard device through Device Manager and then downloaded and installed the Newest version of the lifecam software, ver. 2.04, and then restarted the system. I also connected a microphone and used that rather than the mic built into the camera. So far, the loud white noise has not returned.

Good luck. I hope this helps and please let me know how it works out.

Cannot find built in microphone on laptop HP Compac no 6120


This model hp compaq nc6120 pc notebook has NO built-in mic. I read it on the manufactures website in the "reviews" section. But it does have a port where you can connect an external mic and it will work "BEAUTIFULLY" The port is on the right side of the laptop next to the dvd/cd drive.

I dont understand how to use an external mic. Use of external mic.


Your external mic needs to have a 1/8" plug. You will need to find the "Mic" input, this is generally found behind a removable or hinged plastic or rubber panel, and usually near the A/V plug connectors. When you plug in an external mic, the camera switches over to use it rather than the built-in mic. On this camcorder, you cannot set the recording level of the external mic. The camera sets the level automatically. So it is simply a plug-and-play, or plug-and-record solution.

Using an external mic allows you to reduce self-noise and handling noise. It is generally recommended for better videos. Different microphones are likely to interact in different ways with your camera and its automatic level-setting, so you should try out different microphones if you have more than one available to you.

Canon optura 500


I believe you need a stereo mic. This will have two black rings around the male input. When you plug it into the camera, it will "disable" the built-in mic. I don't believe it will matter if the attenuation is on or off.
