Tips for Improving Computer Audio Quality

To improve the sound quality when using computer audio:

  • Use a high-quality microphone. When you move the microphone connection wire, you should not hear static or hissing, and the sound should not cut out.
  • Use a speakerphone that includes echo cancellation. The Polycom SoundPoint PC speakerphone is recommended.
  • Do not lay the microphone on the table. (Laying the microphone down amplifies noise.)
  • Do not place the microphone near your speakers.
  • If possible, use a headset that contains a boom microphone. If you are using a boom microphone, do not touch the microphone with your face or hands. Also, do not breathe loudly near the microphone.
  • If you are using a desktop microphone, a unidirectional dynamic microphone with batteries is recommended.
  • Do not use a microphone with an on and off switch unless the microphone is of high quality.

Note Be sure to test your audio and video equipment before participating in a meeting with computer audio and video. You can test your audio and video when you test a meeting. To test a meeting, click Test Meeting in the Meeting Center.
