It may pay to follow the Skype advice regarding sound quality:

For instance, not many people realise you have to Mute the Mike both in Playback and Record from the Volume icon's menu panel.

Incidentally, I have a similar problem in that all my Skype calls are excellent sound wise, apart from one contact in the Caymans which brings considerable sound interference.

Just wonder if your contact is using speakers instead of a headset?

the other talker on speakers.sorry for not saying. but an add on question.i dont seem have play back and record in my Menu.

Menu for what?

If you mean the Volume icon, double click on it>Options>Properties>panel with Playback and Record listed.

Do each in turn and add the sound features required (Mike, CD, Wave etc).

To prevent speakers interfering with headset use, I have both connected via a 3.5mm stereo output adapter.

When the speakers are in use, I turn the headset's volume control down to minimum and, when using the headset, I turned the speakers off. See:

About £1.50 from a local audio dealer.

On occasions when I get echo back if phoning landlines I ask the other end to replace the hand set and I call them back this will often solve the problem.
This by the way is with Voipdiscount which seems better to me that Skype which I use occasionally.
