    Hello all!

    I'm not audio whizz, but I do know a few things about getting better mic and sound quality in desktops. Usually this involves XLR connectivity and better soundcards, but with a laptop those sorts of options aren't a thing.

    Recently I bought a Razer Laptop and have since been looking for the best option to upgrade better sound and microphone quality. Should I buy an external soundcard, or is there another work-around? I'm also wondering if anyone is or has been in the same boat.

    Thank you all!

    You will want to indicate if you're going to run with it as a mobile setup or if it's a static desktop type of thing. Either way, external DACs are the way to go. I'm sure some of our system and audio enthusiasts can point you in the right direction.

    Moving this to our Audio section.

    Hey Synari, what kind of improvement are you after?
    If you just want to sound better on your Zoom call, any headset with a boom mic will likely sound better than your laptop mic and using headphones instead of your speakers makes a big improvement for those listening to you, a lot of folks aren't aware of that.
    Bluetooth earbuds are great for listening to music but I don't like the microphones on these as much for Zoom calls unless they're a high-end model, I don't know if it's the bluetooth or noise cancellation but they can be hard to understand.
    Any USB external sound card is going to work, it would compromise portability of course but it's the ultimate in audio flexibility. You can plug in anything you want with one of these but it's probably the priciest option too.
