Otherwise when running the current version of CM 11s, you'll need to yell or hold the microphone very close to your face.
After diving into some of the files in the oneplus one, I found some file values that once changed, make the microphone actually strong enough to recognize ok google from an arm's distance away. This is essential for using speakerphone, skype, any recording application, as well as google now. I was tired of having people go WAT ARE YOU SAYING repeatedly.
You will need a rooted Oneplus One with some sort of root explorer.
I used Root Explorer (File Manager) by Speed Software
1. Go to system/etc/mixer_paths.xml
2. Mount system as R/W
3. Open up mixer_paths.xml with Text Editor
4. Scroll close to the bottom of the text, your little scroll position indicator should be about an inch up from the bottom of your screen(no on screen buttons)
5. You will see <!-- Analog input devices --> and a bunch of text underneath.
6. I wasn't entirely sure which mic would make this work so I changed the <path name+"main-mic"> value from 84 to 100. (Play around with the value until you find a sweet spot.) IF YOU GET ENVIRONMENTAL MICROPHONE INTERFERENCE, TRY TURNING THE VALUES BACK DOWN A BIT.
7. Save the changed mixer_paths.xml and reboot your device for good measure
Enjoy your actually functional microphone! I hope that CM11s fixes this in an update shortly. It is not fixed as of July 4, 2014

If you want my original Oneplus One forum post, search it up under the CM11s section of their forum. I am not able to link it here because I just joined XDA.
