Does K053 USB lapel mic work on Linux or raspberry pi ?


November 18, 2019

Hi @Aria most of the Linux have USB plug and play feature built-in, then this K053 will work. But we are not sure if that’s the case in yours. Though if you have the external keyboard or mouse work properly, then this mic also will.

Trying to gte K053 to work with Android Kiosk screen with regular USB . Not working. Please can you help set it up


February 11, 2020

Hi @joel benatar current Android uses either type C or micro-USB jack, therefore, you got to have adapter to make the USB type A of K053 to be compabile with your smartphone. A type C (or micro-USB) male to USB type A female adapter will help.

I’m on a Windows laptop; the K053 is recognized and working; however when I tried to record with it on Zoom, there was no sound. I appreciate any help as I need to make some videos today.

Thank you!


April 06, 2020

Hi Kelly.
As for the Zoom platform. Here are some tips for you.
1. Plug the mic into your computer first, then open the Zoom.
2. Set the mic “USB PnP audio device” as default input device BOTH in the computer sound setting and the Zoom. Besides, set USB PnP audio device as the default output device when you have an external speaker connecting to the K053 earphone jack. If dont have the external speaker or the speaker is connecting to the computer, please set the built
-in speaker as the default output device.

Does this work without using the headphones?


April 14, 2020

Hi S Rolling,
Yes. The headphone jack is needed if you wanna monitor your sound.
But it does work without using the headphone.

I am trying to use the K053 on a HP Chromebook. Will this mic work on it?


April 23, 2020

Hi @Robert, it depends on the variation of your Chrome system, but as long as keyboard or mouse works, then the USB PnP driver has been pre-installed on the system. And that means the K053 USB lapel mic is plug and play as well.

Does the KO53 work with Teams? is there a specific configuration that i need to do. I am using a Windows 10 PC.


May 07, 2020

Hi @Brian Davey yes it works with Teams, just need to make sure the defualt input is USB PnP Audio Device, which is K053. As for output, it depends on what output device you use and where you connect it. If it’s internal speaker or headphone is plugged into computer, then choose built-in speaker as default out. If headphone is hooked up to the mic 3.5mm jack, then choose USB PnP Audio Device as default out.

I have a Huawei P30 Pro and would like to know if the K053 USB Lapel would work on this phone if I use a USB Type C to USB adapter ? Thank you


May 08, 2020

Hi @Madi yes, no problem using it with P30 through a proper USB adapter.

Just got this mic. It seems to work fine on my Windows 10 laptop, but it shuts off audio so I can’t hear the other person. What to do?


May 12, 2020

Hi @Lance Weinberg sorry about the confusion, but it’s just the issue of output config. Since K053 it’s seen as both input and output device, if you want to hear computer audio through computer speaker, you need to change output to built-in microphone. Or if there’s any external speaker or headphone plugged into your computer, then just plugging them into K053 headphone jack will fix this problem.


June 06, 2020

I connect this mic to my Oppo A5 2020 using USB-A TO USB-C converter. But it desn’t seem to work. What can I do?


June 08, 2020

Hi Andy,

Sorry, it is kind of weird. Cuz a lot of clients can use the microphone on Android phone through the suitable adapter successfully.
Could you plz try to plug the mic into computer, and check whether it works?
If yes, then it could be the problem of your adapter, plz change another adapter and try it again.
If no, plz send your order number to, then our after-sale team will help fix it up.

Ever since I bought this lapel mic, whenever I insert the headphone or the earphones, the sound doesn’t come. Only if I hold the earphone jack pin tightly into the 3.5mm jack… Then only it works..


June 28, 2020

Hi @Soumya Prakash Pothal. Sorry about the issue, since you have contacted our support email, our after-sales staff should take care of your case. Hope it will be fixed soon!


June 30, 2020

Hi Soumya,
Sorry for the issue.
Could you test it on another computer to eliminate the possibility of poor microphone port?
Could you use your smartphone to record a 1-minute video describing the problem, including 30s for holding tightly and speaking, 30s for only speaking?
Then send the file to with the order number, then our after-sales team will help fix it up.

Bom dia, depois a ultima atualização do Windows 10 no dia 17/07/2020 o meu microfone: MICROFONE DE LAPELA FIFINE USB COM MONITORAÇÃO DE FONE DE OUVIDO PARA CHAMADAS DO SKYPE, CONFERÊNCIA, DITAR-K053, esta cortando a voz em vários app do próprio Windows e também no Whereby….como solucione esse problema… Obrigado


July 22, 2020

Hi @Donizete,
If you are using the Windows 10, you may need to pay more attention to the private setting after updating and allow the software access to your mic.

Donizete Luiz Graça

July 22, 2020

Olá @microfone, eu olhei nas privacidades e está tudo ok…. mas continua com o problema de falha de áudio no microfone…


July 23, 2020

Hi @Donizete,
That’s quite weird. In this case, we recommend that you ask for the after-sales team from where you purchase.


July 28, 2020

Left and right audio is reversed.


July 29, 2020

Hi Caden. Plz contact with the order number, then our after-sales team will help you out.


August 15, 2020

hello, I recently bought my K053. It’s detected but there is so much background static and any voice sounds garbled. I adjust everything from volumes in discord, skype etc. Still sound so bad.


August 15, 2020

Hi rap, First off, try testing the mic on a laptop without charging cord plugged in to see if it's the grounding issue. If laptop is not available, could you bother to have your PC powered by another wall outlet? Next, to eliminate the possibility of a broken USB, just test with another one. If above suggestions don't help, plz record a 1-min video, including 30s for speaking and 30s for keeping silent. Then send the file to with your order number, our after-sales team will help fix it up.


September 20, 2020

I just purchase the K053. The mic work fine but the headphone output left/right channel is wrong. I tested with a few headphones, all show the left/right is opposite. Any way to correct?


September 21, 2020

Hi Mike, There is the problem that we can't find your order through your name or email. Plz send your shipping address and your order number to then we will help you out.

I am trying to use a set of earbuds for monitoring during zoom calls using the headphone jack in the K053. The earbuds do not have an inline mic- just earbuds. I can hear all other audio, but no monitoring. I am connected to a windows 10 computer.


September 24, 2020

Hi @Adam,
If you are using the Windows 10, plz right click the speaker icon on the right corner of the computer, select Recording device, right click USB PnP Audio device, select properties, Listening, check “Listen to this device”.


September 25, 2020

@fifine microphone- when I right-click the volume control in the task tray, I do not have the option you described- I did, however, find the setting, but I am having noticeable latency in the monitoring. Is this expected, or is this indicating a malfunction?

Just bought the KO53. Want to record my videos on ZOOM. However, I can’t hear myself unless I use a headset! Is that the only way? I am on MAC OS

Eileen McDargh

September 26, 2020

I wanted too use K053 to record via zoom. However, when I record, I can hear myself at all. It appears that the only way I can record is to wear a headset? If that is true, then I must return this device. Not doin videos with me wearing a head set


September 28, 2020

Hi @Adam,
That’s kind of weird. Could you let us know your connection and the software you’re using? If you plug the headphone into the monitor jack, it’s not supposed to be any latency, unless that’s the latency coming from the software.
