The issue is caused because the microphone being used is able to hear feedback from the speakers. Try the following steps to resolve this issue:
- Use a pair of headphones that are equipped with a microphone to eliminate outside noise feedback. Most earbud style modern headphones will work and computer headphones work great for this.
- Insure that your computer is using the correct and only input for your headset. This can be checked by accessing the sound options on the machine (PC: Settings>Sound / Mac: Preferences>Sound). If the headset is not listed as your default audio device for inputs and outputs, make sure to disable the other device and make the headset your default. Consult with your computer manufacturer with additional questions about this.
- Insure that no other applications are open and using the microphone at the same time. (i.e. Skype, Facetime, etc…)
