  • While holding a microphone, make sure you hold it 5-6 inches from your mouth. Just the exact distance, any closer or further away might be too loud or too feeble.

  • Use headphones if you think you want to hear your voice and check if the flow is okay. Using good set headphones is always a good idea.
