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.

5 Tips to Improve Sound Quality of a Recorded Video

Next, we will give you 5 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 inbuilt 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. Record with EaseUS RecExperts

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. Edit the Recorded Video Afterwards
