Does the X10 Video Calling System have audio?
Because there's no condenser microphone available that matches our high-quality optics, your X10 Video Calling System's camera doesn't include one. No need to worry, you most likely have at least one option for transmitting audio already. Whether you prefer to use your computer's built-in microphone, a Bluetooth headset, or your telephone's speakerphone option, you don't have to be tied to a low-quality condenser microphone built into the camera.
Incidentally, speakers are microphones, and also if you fancy a really good quality microphone, you can get them from the vocals department of musical instrument shops!
