How to test your mic?

Testing your microphone with our online tool is pretty simple: just wait until all your multimedia devices are detected and then click the “Test my mic” button. If this button doesn’t appear and you haven’t received any notifications, it’s likely that there’s been an error with your browser. To help you, please contact us at info@mictests.com



How is the microphone being tested?

  1. First of all, it is determined if the browser supports functions for accessing multimedia devices. If so, a list of detected microphones and necessary controls are displayed.
  2. When you click the “Test my mic” button, your browser will ask permission to start the microphone on this site.
  3. Once access is granted, the microphone will start up and you will see the visualizer of sounds captured by your mic.
  4. The tester starts to record your voice and any noise captured by your mic.
  5. Now it’s time to determine supported features and make some some measurements.
  6. Finally are displayed the testing results, hints and additional controls (including the playback).


Why do you have to leave a review?

Once the mic test is complete, you can leave a review about your microphone. This is not necessary, but we recommend that you do this to help others buy a good microphone and bypass the bad ones. Also, after your review is published, you will see how good your microphone is (i.e., you will find out how good it is in the best microphone rating).



System Requirements

To test the microphone, you only need a modern browser (unfortunately, Internet Explorer is not a such browser) that supports functions for accessing multimedia devices. As you have noticed, our microphone test tool does not require any additional software such as Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight or browser plug-ins. There are no restrictions on the type of device, so your microphone can be integrated (into headphones, mobile device, laptop), wireless (WiFi, bluetooth) or connected via cord (USB, TRL, XLR).
