DVカメラに内蔵されているマイクを使用しても問題ありませんが、広い会場では発表者の音声以外の雑音まで録音してしまうため、聞きやすい音質にならない場合があります。

English translation:clear sound quality, (sound quality which is pleasing to the ear)
Explanation:
聞きやすい音質 is literally "sound/audio quality which is pleasing to the ear" or "pleasing-to-the-ear sound quality". I have seen "listenable" somewhere. They are all subjective judgements.

But, from the context you are in, which is about recording someone's speech with less noise in, I would use "clear(er) sound quality" or "clean sound quality".

By the way, not directly related, but the following page lists many adjectives to describe voice qualities. Enjoy reading in your spare time!
