    Microphone strongly distorted except from realtek playback


    Basically when I try to record my voice all I hear is very strongly distorted sound, no speech is recognizable. I tried updating drivers, all mic settings I can think of but with no success.

    When I open the Realtek manager and click the icon for playback on my mic settings the audio is crystal clear, and if possible I would like to have this instead of what is actually outputted. I dont know how to set that working

    I clicked to "Listen to this device" and all I hear is VERY distorted sound, no speech is recognizable.

    So from what I understand the mic is perfectly fine, the drivers should be fine but the quality that is outputted is terrible. Is there anyway to output what I hear from the playback on realtek?

    Im attaching quick screenshot with some more explanation:

    I'm having exactly the same problem! At first it seemed like the mic wasn't working at all, but I then discovered that the sound was hardly being picked up. I increased the microphone boost to +10dB, but the quality is still terrible.

    Bad Audio Conexant Drivers


    Yes I have the same problem with the Mic but Speakers are fine.

    If I let Microsoft put their Drivers in all works fine...

    Same problem here.

    My microphone is really old and it was doing some distorted sounds until I was moving the cable and it was fine. So when I upgraded to Windows 10 I had a call on Skype and a friend told me it's distorted so as usual I tried to move the microphone cable around until it's fine but that didn't fix. So I basically tried to listen to my mic myself and the distortion wasn't the same. Basically the distortion my friends were hearing by the cable was small and could be fixed while moving the cable but this is just a mess.

    I never used Realtek drivers as I hate them and today I saw that Windows had a realtek update via Windows Update itself which I never had before so I assumed that would be a fix or something and I installed. I listened the mic via Realtek playback and it was crystal clear as you say but via recording devices is still distorted. And on Skype they hear me distorted.

    Another pathetic bug from Windows 10.
