    Hello,

    I have new 21'5'' iMac. Just tested skype and voice recording quality on my side is horrible - background noise is very bad.

    Is it normal or do i have to enable/disable something to make it working properly?

    Tnx!

    OK I know where is that noise coming from: Its coming from inside - hard drive fan. When I close my ear to the microphone I can hear it...is it something normal??

    It's hard to say because I haven't owned an iMac, in fact I just placed an order for one. On my MacBook Pro I have the same issue as you. The fan noise bleeds into the microphone causing terrible audio quality. Perhaps you could lower your fan speed with a fan controller during skype calls.
