FaceTime echo? I can hear EVERYTHING I do. So annoying.

    I facetime my girlfriend a lot and we both use our Macbooks. I have a retina MBP 15" and she uses a year old macbook air. When I facetime her I can hear every single thing I do echo back to me. Every word I say and even really light sounds like my roommate opening the door or something across the apartment. It's extremely sensitive and extremely annoying.

    Does anyone else experience this or have a fix?? At first I thought it was just her volume but it even happens when she has it on extremely low volume.

    Try using EarPods on both sides (you and your girlfriend).

    Have you got a case blocking one of the mic's or is one gummed up?

    Check your settings for the microphone in Audio MIDI Setup app. Mine was set to 96 kHz. When I changed it back to 44.1 kHz, the echo problems disappeared.
    I think it's a bug with noise canceling not working correctly with all sample rates.
