    Hello Camilo,

    Thanks for reaching out to the community!

    I checked your audio and it does have a noticeable amount of boxiness. In addition, I also found some mouth noises present in the recording. 

    However, since it sounds like you're recording in an enclosed and insulated space, the boxiness issue can be easily addressed with an EQ fix!

    For the sample you sent, I was able to minimize the boxiness in your audio by applying an EQ with the following settings: 

    -Applying -2.2db at 266hz with a Q: 3.7
    -Applying -6db at 481hz with a Q: 2.2
    -Applying -4.8db at 957hz  with a Q: 1.9
    -Applying -2.3db at 1633hz with a Q: 1.8

    Here's an attached audio sample as well as a snapshot of how your cleaned-up audio should sound:
    Please keep in mind that you should only use this EQ as a starting point in fixing boxiness issues in your space since there may be slight differences in each recording session.

    I also found a couple of your samples that have good quality (minimal boxiness and mouth noise). It sounds like you're recording at a much better distance from the mic in these recordings.
    I believe this quality should pass QC's standards.

    Here are the links for future reference:

    Regarding the mouth noise issue, I'd like to suggest drinking some warm tea before recording to make sure that the mouth is properly hydrated. You may also visit the following link for some extra tips:

    I hope this helps and please let me know if there's anything else I can help you with!
