When you are watching a video with poor audio quality, will you feel difficult to focus on the content? Most people will. Let's picture if that is your video presentation, will people get what you are trying to pass? When recording a video presentation, many of us spend a lot of time and effort to make sure the content is perfect. However, if your audience can't hear you, it will cut down the information pass, or even cause misunderstandings.

If you have recorded the video and found the audio quality is low, you can use a video editing tool to enhance the audio in your video. But we recommend you record the video with a tool that can cancel noise and enhance audio. This way, you don't need to edit the video after recording, which could save a lot of time.

10 Tips to Improve Sound Quality of a Recorded Video

Next, we will give you ten tips to improve the sound quality of a recorded video. Just read them one by one and choose a solution.

1. Remove as Much Noise as Possible

Minimizing any noise in the room can help you get the best sound quality out of your microphone. The sound of people talking, music playing, car whistling, children laughing, etc., can all lower the audio quality of your videos. Therefore, you'd better remove them from your video. Also, before you start recording, make sure that any machines, such as a fax machine or printer, are turned off.

2. Choose the Right Audio Recording Equipment

Normally, your laptop's built-in microphone or the microphone on your webcam will be sufficient. However, if you're in a conference room or what, you may want to consider using a uni-directional microphone, which could make sure that only the sound from one direction will be picked up.

Depending on the situation, you may choose:

Hand-held microphones: This type of microphone is exceptional at eliminating background noise and distortion; however, it could be a distraction since you have to hold it all the time.

Lavalier Microphones: This is the least noticeable microphone. Properly secured to a collar or lapel, this type of microphone can also eliminate noise and distortion.

Headset Microphones: If you need to keep your hands free, you may use a headset microphone; but note this type of microphone is still noticeable.

3. Choose A Proper Recording Program

If you don't want to spend a lot of money to buy a high-quality microphone, you may use a Windows screen recorder that can cancel noise during recording and enhance the audio quality of your video. EaseUS RecExperts is such an application.

With this tool, you may record a video on the full screen, record a video of fantastic gameplay, record the screen of a Zoom meeting, record Google Meet, etc, all with the audio enhancing function. See the main features of EaseUS RecExperts below.

4. Keep an Eye on Your Input Volume

Many recorders will show you the microphone input volume meter so that you can see how high the sound wave is when the sound is loud enough. When you are recording, you need to keep an eye on the volume meter. If your voice is too loud or too low, you need to make adjustments in time.

5. Use A Pop Filter

A good pop filter reduces the difficulties of your recording. You can buy a good one from online and offline stores. It does not necessarily have to be expensive. Sometimes, a $10 pop filter can do the work.

6. Wear Headphones

Headphones are helpful when you want to make a clear recording. It doesn't mean that your recording is bound to be good when you are in a silent environment. Multiple insurance is what you need. Just put your headphones on when you speaking.

7. Test All Your Equipment Beforehand

You can never what will happen until you test it. It is also workable for audio recording. Remember to test your equipment every time before starting. Just simulate real recording situations and environments before the real recording. You must also play the recording and check if all your equipment works perfectly.

8. Stay Confident and Calm

Sometimes, the audio quality is not satisfying because the speaker is not calm or confident. This is not about the equipment or environment. So you can only solve it by adjusting your mood. Just tell yourself: It's not a big deal!

9. Practice Repeatedly

Practice is always the key to a good recording or presentation. When you are familiar with the content you are going to record, you will do it much better than when you never practice.

10. Edit the Recorded Video Afterwards

If you have a recorded video that is poor in audio quality and you are reluctant to record it again, you may edit the recorded video with a video editing tool. There are many videos editors on the market, here we recommend you to use EaseUS Video Editor.

Designed for novices, this tool is quite easy to use as it has a simple and clear interface. With this software, you can improve the audio by adding a loud and clear audio track, or you can directly volume up the audio if you feel it is not loud enough. Of course, you need to make sure there is no noise in the background. Otherwise, the noise will be enhanced too.
