Microphone amplifies background noise

Hello all,

 

I love the noice cancelling and listening audio quality for these but when I use for conference calls, etc., I get complaints that the background noise is too loud.  I have to mute when not speaking.  Is there a fix for this?

Re: Microphone amplifies background noise

I am having the same problem with the QC20 microphone. Picks up too much background noise so the other end can't hear me well. Any fix at all for this? Besides 'microphone not working' because it is working. Too well!

 

Thanks
