Microphone Volume Fluctuations While Using Zoom

Updated by Kamika Royal on Feb 7, 2024

Sometimes you can experience drops in microphone volume while using Zoom, and if you have already checked the basics (sound settings, etc.), then here is something else you can try:

Changing Zoom Sound Settings
  1. Click on the profile picture then click on "Settings"
  2. Select "Audio" from the tab on the left
  3. Make sure the correct headset is set as speaker and microphone
  4. Make sure "Automatically adjust volume" is NOT checked
    Microsoft Teams audio settings to stop mic fluctuations

This will keep the microphone at a steady volume, not allowing Zoom to try to automatically adjust the the audio (which is what causes the mic audio to drop in and out).

Time for a new headset?

Many Zoom users have made the switch to the Leitner LH670!
