    i got surface pro on the first day morning. and I found this microphone problem hours ago when I first make a Skype phone call with my friend.
    My friend told me that there is very loud background noise. So I make some tests with several recorder app. The background noise is big enough to be noticed (very big in some sense) and sound like electronic noise. Like electromagnetic interference.

    So I wonder if you guys have the same problem? or I guess I need to replace for a new one.... I always get bad luck on electronic stuff...

    Could anyone try it out? thank you!
