Frequently Asked Questions Why can’t I hear out of the H-531 earpiece? The H-531 is a microphone only. It has no speaker in the earpiece; the cushion is for comfort only. It recorded in Sound Recorder great the first time but not the second, why? When you close out of Sound Recorder and reopen it, Sound Recorder will revert back to Radio Quality. Reset to CD Quality and make a new recording. Do I need to change to CD Quality to use other programs? CD Quality is for the Sound Recorder program. You do not need to open Sound Recorder, change to CD Quality and then open your other program. Keep in mind the program you are using may have special settings you need to adjust. Why do I get an Echo feedback when using Telephony programs? The echo is caused by the output of your speakers becoming an input to your microphone. If your microphone is too close to your speakers or is in a direct path of the output of your speakers you can get the Echo loop. To correct this, move the microphone away from your speakers, change the direction your speakers are facing, or turn down the volume of the microphone. Sometimes you will need to do all three items to correct the problem. Can I use the microphone in a hub? Telex will not guarantee our products performance through third party hardware. For best results, you should plug the microphone into an USB port on the computer.
