I am using some no name microphone (Ikedon USB Condenser Microphone on Amazon) w/Audacity on a Windows Computer.

I have no idea what I am doing from technical standpoint, so any help is awesome.

All of your tech specs are fine but your volume is a lot too low. Move closer to the microphone, turn up the gain and things like that to increase the volume going into the mic. Your recording is at 69 dB and we aim at 89 dB, quite a difference. On the other hand your voice is great!
Please make another test, call it test 2 or something, upload and paste in this thread and I promise to get to it qujickly.
