    Y700 Realtek Microphone Quality

    Hi there,

    I just registered coz it seems like you guys know some things that I do not. Simple as that - my microphone quality (doesnt matter the headphones, hyperx cloud, steelseries, all the same) with realtek drivers on my lenovo y700 with W10 sounds like the old cassettes. Mine sounds like Kingston HyperX Cloud II Microphone Test - YouTube , but it should like a HyperX Cloud Headset Review + Mikro Test! (GERMAN) - YouTube . If I uninstall realtek driver - my mic quality is really fine, but without it I don't have a dolby audio, which is pretty good for sound overall. I tried to turn off all the mic effects, but then it records only left channel or something like that.

    Is there a solution to this?

    Win 10

    There have been other posts with same problem. From what I remember the "fix" was to use a different sound card or USB sound card. I have Realtek on my desktop but no mic so I can't try it or troubleshoot with mine.

    Thanks, you are right. I tried the cheapest one from Alie and guess what, mic sounds good. Not really a fix, but good workaround.
