Aukey MI-U2 too quiet

My Aukey mic is normally at an arms-length reach sitting upright, when I use it in any kind of communication app, let it be Skype, Teams, Discord or a game that includes voice-chat everyone complains that they hear me far and quiet. Is this normal and I should be putting the mic even closer or is the audio actually too low? If so, how do I fix it?

Where I attach screenshots of me talking at the same volume while taking the mic and approaching it to me in both linear scale and DB. It starts to increase as soon as my lips are right next to it.


I’d check your settings in the software you’re using for communications. That way, you can be sure that it’s picking up your voice correctly without you having to move too close to it.
