All is good, except your volume is a touch high. Try knocking down your mic slider 1/4 to 1/2 notch.

There's a small program the spouse of a LibriVoxer developed to check the tech settings. If you're game, you can download it and use it to check the volume and other settings. It's here: https://cgjennings.ca/projects/checker/
The volume information is in the Information tab. We aim for 89 dB, but anything between about 86 and 92 is good.

Are you comfortable with this, or do you want to post another test to double check? :)
