Sound level compression within Teams is now far to aggressive.
When I started using Teams the sound was relaxed and of higher quality than Skype. But now Teams compress the microphone sound to the most extreme, making it very aggressive and unpleasant to listen to. This is regardless of device used. I want the voice nuances back. Today we get smacked in the face with hard compressed voices all day long. It also creates problems for AEC on most devices, generating artifacts and scratching effects. Our Skype Room Systems also suffer from this. Please turn down the compression level again. Please.
Same here- want control over it, as it sometimes hurts in the ears,if the counterpart is using a laptop microphone, and the lower frequencies are resonating so highly that it bumps in my ears.
Sure not a feature for beginners- hide it somewhere deeper in the settings.
It makes streaming any music hopeless. I’m a music teacher, but if I play piano, soft parts get blanked out due to the noise gate & compression. If I use loop back to send audio out through teams (I’m on Mac and have no system audio out yet), for my students to listen to, the audio quality is terrible. Please improve, or add the option to adjust in settings.
i my side it would be great if i could have 192kbit sound quality
I agree. Let us control the amount of compression, all the way to zero.
I agree it sounds horrible and gives me a headache (especially if someone is using their laptop mic). It also massively suppresses audio used in presentations.

I am all about allowing for some settings changes to be able to be made for those of us who have high quality equipment and sufficient network connection.

Adjustable would be nice. We do tool demos and a loud tool will shut the voice level down for a minute or more after the tool is shut off.
For our purposes, I'd rather be able to shut the compression off completely.

How about making the compression level adjustable? Sometimes I have a weak connection and would like more compression to avoid interruptions. Other times everything's fine and I'd be happy with less.
