Microphone cutting out

I have a few friends that have been having their microphones cutting out and back in, to the point where over half their words are not transmitting. Almost like their microphones are not picking up their voice.

We have adjusted every in game microphone setting but it doesn’t seem to solve the issues. Neither of their microphones cut out like this on discord, so I’m wondering if anyone has encountered this problem or found fixes.

They are both desktop users, if that makes a difference.

Thank you!

Tried adjusting the sample rate in the microphone settings?
Also, if you’re using nahimic, turn it off before starting VRChat (has a blue icon in your tray) it has a tendency to mess with microphones and other audio devices.
