New noise-reduction tools are being introduced by tech companies to eliminate noise disturbance during phone calls. However, it is essential to be aware of how to locate and utilize these tools effectively.
Here’s how to get it done on iPhone but I’m sorry it has to be on iOS 16.4 or try updating 🙂
Let’s go straight to it:
While on the phone call, pull down the Control Center from the upper right corner and click on the Mic Mode button; select the Voice Isolation option. The feature will continue to stay enabled after activation.
What is the iPhone Voice Isolation Feature?
The iPhone Voice Isolation feature is a special setting that can be enabled in Settings to improve the quality of your calls. It uses a combination of hardware and software to filter out ambient noise, so you can hear your caller clearly even when they’re talking in noisy environments like bars or busy streets.
The Benefits of Using the iPhone Voice Isolation Feature
The iPhone Voice Isolation feature can be used to reduce background noise and improve the sound quality of your calls. The most obvious benefit is enhanced privacy, but there are other advantages as well:
- You’ll be able to hear more clearly when you’re in noisy environments such as busy streets or restaurants
- You’ll also enjoy better call clarity at home or in the office if you’re surrounded by background noises such as air conditioning units or nearby conversations!
The Different Modes of the iPhone Voice Isolation Feature
The iPhone Voice Isolation feature has three different modes: adaptive, voice-only and voice and music.
- Adaptive mode is the default setting of the iPhone’s Voice Isolation feature. It uses both the earpiece speaker and external microphone to filter out background noise, so that you can hear your conversation clearly even in noisy environments
- In voice-only mode, only your voice will be picked up by the internal mic while background sounds are muted (and vice versa). This mode is useful if you want to use FaceTime without disturbing anyone around you or if there are other people in your house who don’t want their conversations recorded by FaceTime’s built-in camera
- Finally, there’s also an option called “Voice & Music” which allows both music playback through headphones as well as phone calls through speakers at once!
Alternatives to the iPhone Voice Isolation Feature
If you’re not interested in the iPhone Voice Isolation feature, there are other options for reducing background noise.
Using a separate microphone is the most obvious choice, but it’s also probably the most expensive option. You can get a small clip-on microphone that attaches to your shirt and picks up only your voice while filtering out other sounds around you. These microphones aren’t cheap though–they typically range from $30-$100 depending on how many features they have and how well they work (the more expensive ones tend to be better).
If using an external microphone isn’t an option for whatever reason, then using noise-cancelling headphones might be what works best for you! They’re similar enough in concept as far as isolating voices goes; however there are some key differences between these two options:
- Noise cancelling headphones don’t require any additional hardware
- Noise cancelling headphones are generally less effective at isolating voices than their standalone counterparts due to their inability (or lack thereof) of filtering out high frequency noises such as bird chirps or car horns
- Noise cancelling headphones require batteries which means they won’t last forever unless recharged regularly through USB ports (which may not always be available)
