Acoustic Treatment For Echoes And Reverberation

Check Your Mic & Streaming Setting

Another thing you can try is a microphone that has a built-in noise gate. This will help reduce any background noise and will prevent the audio from echoing. If you are not able to purchase a new microphone, there are some things you can do to try and fix the echo yourself.

One common cause of echo in Twitch streams is incorrect microphone placement. When your microphone is too close to your mouth, it can cause the audio to echo. Try moving your microphone away from your mouth and see if that helps reduce the echo.

Another thing you can try is to adjust the settings on your streaming software. Sometimes, adjusting these settings can help reduce echo in your Twitch stream. Also, make sure you check all your cables and connections.
