Try moving your head 12 inches to the right
I just got my 2013 Passion with Highline radio, microphone in the bottom right corner. Also the first hands free Bluetooth I've had.
After several Bluetooth conversations, everyone complained my voice was jumbled, metallic or distant. I tried adjusting dynamic noise cancellation DNC, volume controls, fan off, windows up, all to no avail.
Am I correct to summarize that DNC should affect the speaker output only AND has no affect on microphone pickup quality???
I read a lengthy thread where an after market bluetooth microphone location is critical and this coincides with what I discovered.
When I leaned my head to the passenger seat to be directly perpendicular to the microphone, the other end observed my voice quality was excellent. Lean back in front of the steering wheel and my voice quality went back to marginal...lean back to the passenger side and my voice was back to excellent. As least I know what the problem is now, solutions can be sought.
I need an audio / Highline radio specialist to advise
Solutions I conjured up:
A.) mounting a tiny curved piece of plastic next to the microphone to redirect sound into the microphone. What shape, size I am not sure.
B.) install an aftermarket microphone middle of the visor as the other thread suggested AND disable the Highline radio installed microphone. Possible?
