My Listeners complain they do not hear my voice properly

Many listeners have complained that they do not hear my voice properly.  I did the skype call test and found that I do hear lot of static along with my voice.  How to I find out if it is the Skype service or my microphone that I purchase is not of good quality before swapping out for a better microphone and headset on my Ubuntu 12.04 desktop

Turn off Options / Sound Devices / Allow Skype automatically adjust my mixer levels and click above Make a test call... Use Desktop volume control to adjust microphone level.

and if that does not work you will need to get a new mixer (alsa mixer) is a good one it gives the audio a nice boost and has none of the gui problems that the standard mixers seem to have
