I hate to break it to you, but the built-in microphone in your computer sounds awful. Do you enjoy listening to people talk through a filter of last week’s garbage? That’s what it sounds like. It’s not your fault. All built-in mics sound like that. They’re too small, too close to your keyboard, and too far from your face. This is why if you’re into gaming, live-streaming, or making videos with voiceover, you need an external mic. They’ll even make your next Zoom meeting sound a lot better.
