Handy Tip for Conference Calls

I was sitting at my desk the other day and had a conference call coming up. Attended by my co-workers, a few of them are really soft spoken and with my lousy hearing, i am always saying the usual:

  • “what”
  • " pardon me"
  • “excuse me”
    etc etc

So here is a cool tip with you cell phone.

Put it on speaker
Place in a mug or large glass (note: make sure said glass is empty)

My iphone goes into a Pint Beer glass and it increases the sound level 2X!

If you can get the microphone of the phone to be on top, you won’t sound so muffled to the others…
