I'm looking for a way to cancel out the noise of my mechanical keyboard in skype chat. After looking through skype settings and the sound settings gui, I did not find a setting for noise cancelation. I did however find an option for echo reduction, which is not what I need. Does anyone know of a way I can filter out this annoying keyboard noise?

  • You could look into getting a better mic, maybe something unidirectional/cardioid and closer to your face. Or a mic that includes noise cancellation. – wjandrea Sep 27 '16 at 3:28

    There isn't even keyclick noise cancelling software for Windows and gaming, possibly because it's in the same frequency range as human voice ie 80 to 250 hz. I still don't think this is a Ubuntu question and off-topic. That said there are lots of tips on google for reducing keyboard click sounds via mic positioning, placing towel under keyboard, reducing mic gain, putting mic closer to mouth, etc. – WinEunuuchs2Unix Sep 27 '16 at 4:51
  • Jawbone Bluetooth headsets can cancel out all background noise. Just something to look into: ehow.com/how-does_4673191_jawbone-bluetooth-headset-work.html – Terrance Sep 27 '16 at 18:55
