I just got the feedback from several people that they hear me very muffled/bassy via Telegram/WhatsApp Video Call. I used the recorder and took a sample to verify the issue. I think compared to my OnePlus 6 the microphone quality is very bad. I already had issues on my OnePlus 6 that used the wrong (rear) Microphone in Teams for conferences and I'm kind of disappointed there is an issue with the mic again. Did you test your mic and what is your experience so far?

The only app that interacts with the Mic is Spectroid but it does not run as service. I don't think any software is causing it. Telegram, Whatsapp, Calling App also use the Mic of course. I reinstalled also Telegram.

A friend thinks that on whatsapp the sound is better than on telegram. But I don't know if it is subjective opinion.

    Your losing the higher frequencies which need a direct audio pathway more than the lower ones.
    A blocked or partially blocked mic port.
