    Sound quality is worse than the macbook air internal mic according to skype participants. In "intelligent" mode, mic just mutes wh Sound quality is worse than the macbook air internal mic according to skype participants. In "intelligent" mode, mic just mutes when one is speaking. Also, mic is slow to un-mute when one starts speaking. Even when it is unmuted while one is speaking, the sound quality is still poor.
