Picked up the Mic from local Ford dealership today. Looks pretty much the same with a slight few differences. Mine had a black cloth like woven sleeve over the main wire. This one just has a piece of gray foam wrapped around it. There's some writting on the top of the Mic as well that I don't recall seeing on mine. It has an arrow that points one way and says. TO SPEAKER. Odd.

Anyhow, I can't wait to install it and test it. I'd do it now but would look pretty funny with my head sticking out of my sun roof (the easiest way to R&R it through the sunroof) at work while Co-workers are heading to their car wondering what in the hell I"m doing. LOL. YOu can't DRIVE LIKE THAT DUDE!.

When I get home tonight I'll install it and report back tomorrow on my drive into work if there's nary a difference.

Got the new mic installed. Made a test call sitting with the car off in the driveway. I don't think this is going to make one bit of difference. Playback sounded crappy compressed like it usually does. Im about 90+% sure on the road tomorrow it will be the same BS.
At least I know it wasn't as simple as a Mic.

dear friends Hi!

im having the exact same mic issue as you Dysan and i wonder if you have found out a solution. i really like my car but these little things drive me crazy. i have updated bluetooth firmware but no fix. is it worth of spending more than 50 $ to buy a new mic and try if it fixes the problem or you can suggest me a different approach?

thank you in advance

The car has a lot of noise at high speeds. between the loud engine and the heavy road noise, the calls or sync commands are hard to hear. I recently did dynamat in my doors and rear hatch and noticed a difference in my commands. My wife has not complained about the phone being bad but I know its hard to hear when i have to scream at it to get the commands to work.

I find my Focus amazingly quiet at highway speeds, unless the winds outside are already howling....

I know this is a little bit old...

Can you give any details on the part and process?

Just bought my fiancÚ a 2014 Focus and it's great, except that there is a lot of echo heard by the person on the other end when she has a call in the Focus through Sync (basic, non touch).

She'll have this car for a decade probably, heh... Would love to get the concern worked out.

Obviously turning the volume down helps, but in order to be effective it has to be turned down to the point where she can't hear it either.

Thanks.
