The voice volume should be above 74 dB, otherwise certain voice applications may filter out played sounds misinterpreting them as background noise. If your measured voice volume is lower than 74 dB, it is recommended to increase the overall microphone volume in Windows.

  2. Disable Echo Cancellation3, Noise Suppression4, Automatic Gain Control5 and select Standard as Audio Subsystem6.
It's best to test the sound quality with a friend in a voice chat, because the mic test (Let's Check Button) doesn't necessarily represent the same quality as the actual voice chat.
The instructions are from 1st November 2022 and may not be up-to-date. If the instructions don't help, try to change other options in Discord, which might have to do with sound filtering.
