I use my Mac Mini to chat on Skype and Google Hangouts.  I have a USB mic that used to work great for both occassions, however over the past 6 months I have been experiencing sound quality issues.  The main problem is that, while I am able to hear the people I call perfecly well, they tell me that they only hear a garbled/static sound.  A few times this was remedied by simply unplugging the mic and then plugging it back in, however for certain calls this did not work at all.


I'm looking for a longer-term solution (something that doesn't cut out half-way through a 30 min call) that eliminates the garbled sound entirely.


Thanks for your suggestions!


Ps. let me know if you need any hardware specifics

Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.6.8), USB Mic Poor Sound Quality
