my mic sounds awful to others
no matter whether i use my built in mic or my plug in onepeople keep telling me that my mic sounds like its in my mouth and is way too loud. I tried lowering the mic volume from the mic setup area but it doesnt seem to have helped. How do i fix this issue?

Make sure the output volume isn't maxed out on Steam. For some reason it defaults to being maxed out for me and I have to lower it every time I start Steam.

i tried that, i set it low and its still happening
Along with what WaR said, I'd try right clicking that little speaker icon at the bottom right of your desktop. (Where the date and time is located)
Once you right click that, select 'Recording devices.' At that menu, right click the microphone that has a green check beside it, then click 'Properties'. From there, click the 'levels' tab, then proceed to adjust the output of your microphone.

Hopefully the guy above me has already fixed your problem, but if not, just give what I said a try.

Hope it helps.

And if it's not solved, use grounded outlet or touch the computer with your empty leg to use it as a ground to eliminate distorsions.

orrr.... you could buy an actual microphone instead of trying to use a crappy built in one.
