# Ubuntu – Distorted headphone sound when using Skype for Linux

Recently, i installed on my Ubuntu 16.04LTS, Skype for Linux 8.11.0.4.

The problem is when i call someone, his/hers voice is about 40-50% (approximation) distorted. Really annoying. Searched for a solution, but didn't find anything and many seem to have the same problem.

Is there any solution to this? Or maybe a reference to an official Skype thread with discussion or something?

Skype for Linux seems to be relatively new skype edition. Looks likes the windows 10 internal version.

This fix worked for me:

sudoedit /etc/pulse/daemon.conf


and insert:

default-fragment-size-msec = 5
