We require all of our users to put on a headset with microphone during recording, because doing so will help you eliminate background noise, giving you accurate PitchVantage scores and useful feedback. Any functioning headset with microphone is sufficient. Please see instructions below on how to connect:

  • Headset with jack(s)
  • USB Headset
  • Bluetooth Headset 

Headset with jack(s) 


  • If your laptop has two audio jacks, please use a headset with two jacks. If you only have single jack headset, get an adapter.


USB Headset 

Connect your USB headset (such as Logitech) to a USB port on your laptop. 


Bluetooth Headset

Connect your Bluetooth headset (such as Apple AirPods) to your laptop by following the instructions of your Bluetooth headset brand.

Important: some Bluetooth headsets are NOT optimized for recording and you can hear loud background noise of static and surrounding noises during video playback. If this happens, please switch to a headset with jack or USB headset.

Lastly, Plug in your headset and go back to finish adjusting the settings. 

(Windows users: see below if a window pops up after you plug in the headset)

For Windows users, Realtek HD Audio Manager may pop up on your computer.

Check Headphone/Headset > Click OK.

Click OK.

Go back to finish sound recording adjustment.
