Linx 8 Microphone, Rather Poor? Any Suggestions?

by loulou » August 5th, 2015, 11:43 am

Does anyone find the microphone on the Linx 8 is rather poor? Boyf sometimes talks to me on it via Skype - the noise it picks up! Sometimes it's like he's in a wind tunnel, or it barely produces audio at all and I have to turn my desktop speakers right up.

Any way around it or is it just the way it is? I have a Linx 10 but haven't tried it - I talk to him on my desktop (I have the business version of the Logitech C920 webcam, the C920-C).

I've been using this as my mic for my Linx 8.

Dumb question maybe, but wouldn't that 3.5mm connector mute the speaker on the Linx 8 (thinking of Skype calls)?

Surely it would be easier, and nuch better quality, to skype from a smartphone?

We do that, he has a Samsung S4 Mini, and alternates between that and the Linx. He's just tried an ancient desktop microphone (the type most PC users had about ten years ago) and it's much, much better - mutes the Linx 8 speaker, though.
