Rated 5 out of 5 by from I brought this as an alternative to using the in built mic on my Sony Vaio laptop for Skype (other parties were receiving feedback and static interference). To be honest was sceptical that such a small device placed so close to the laptop would be any better. Plugging it into my laptop this mic initially didn't register much movement in the volume input meter under the recording devices tab in windows (even with volume control set to 100 and microphone boost on +10dB) unless you went right next to it. However once Skype was loaded up I was pleasantly surprised that my voice transmitted through loud and clear with zero feedback/static/interference and I am now able to sit a comfortable distance away from the laptop and speak freely at normal volume. All in all, despite initial concerns completely satisfied with this little gem of a device and would recommend for those using Skype.

Hi, I have a HP x2 Pavilion tablet with Windows 10 software and Skype volume is low - I've tried the various suggestions and I'm now looking for a suitable small microphone. Would this item work? Presumably it would go in the headphone jack.

Asked by: Herdwick
Yes this will work fine in your intended application.
