    Hi,

    I tried using ears with built in mics for skyping, but it uses the mic from my acer iconia a500. The internal mic has poor sound for skyping, so I searched for an option to use the external mic, which I can't find?

    On windows there is the option to choose which mic is used, but i seems it isn't in the honeycomb version.

    Am I the only one with this problem, or does anyone know a solution?

    Thnx

    Not sure why headset/mic you are using but I use the iPhone set and a set from blackberry both seem to work OK.

    Apparently after the dual update the external and internal mic both work great.

    The internal mic is indeed not that good, but since the update I dont't need to yell anymore. Just something i noticed, im not sure that its because of the updates.
