Re: Lion upgrade breaks sound quality

Have you had any chance to see if it was working now?

Re: Lion upgrade breaks sound quality

This is an old post, however for what its worth, yes it is a OSX USB problem (Lion), it can be fixed though by configuring your USB headset in Utilities/Audio MIDI Setup.  You should find your headset listed in the left column. Select the Output tab and change the sound Hz from 32 down to 16. Yes this will slightly downgrade the sound quality, but for voice/Skype its hardly noticable.

LOL!!!! It's 2013 and it's still broken. "We're working on a fix" in 2011.

 

At least it's reliable... I can make this problem occur on command on any Mac. All you need to do is patch at least one phone number into the conference call. Multiple Skype users are ok, but a phone number destroys the connection instantly.

Re: Lion upgrade breaks sound quality

Just bought a new Plantronics Marque2 solely for Skype use on Macbook Pro with Mountain Lion and yeah seeing same issue; intermittent but precise pauses in the audio. 

 

Makes it impossible to hold a conversation.

 

So basically have bought a $30 paperweight due to a Skype bug; thanks Skype! :X

Re: Lion upgrade breaks sound quality

That solved the problem for me. Having said this, it shouldn't be the solution but merely a workaround till the issue is actually solved by SKype.
