Will changing the settings in the drop down box make it so that the other person on Skype be able to hear me louder? Or does it only apple for clarity when recording? If not, how can I maximize my output in the settings on a Windows 7 computer? thanks.

Changing those settings won't hurt anything. Worst case scenario is that you'll just have to change it back. The settings are for the quality of the input of the mics. Depending on your mic, you might be able to adjust the sensitivity of it, making is so that it picks up your voice easier, thus making it seem louder on the other end. You could also try a different mic, perhaps one that sits closer to your mouth and/or one of a better quality. Cheap mics (to include bluetooth headsets/earpieces etc. etc.) aren't always the best option. Sometimes a direct jack (plugs directly into your CPU with a 2.5mm jack) is a better option, specially if it can get next to your mouth instead of your ear.

Please let us know if this helps or not! :thumbup2:
