Ok, quick test and ran with headphones in BFV with no Discord. Same result.

So it's BFV and Windows together, being a twat.

The only other suggestion is can you get borrow an non USB headset and see if it still does it

Can I make a suggestion, uninstall the corsair software and let windows install a generic driver.

To add to this subject, I have been playing this for several weeks with no sound problems at all, but last night I finally got the in-game press to talk button set-up and halfway through the map I lost some of the sounds e.g. I could hear the chat but not the gunfire or what way going around me

@Projectblue
Before you start up Discord and BFV make sure you have the right driver selected in the sound settings with your headphones plugged in, left click the speaker icon bottom right of windows (see pic 1) Your headphones should be the one selected, if not click the little arrow nest to the wording and select the correct one. (See Pic 2)

Thanks for the assist gents. Much appreciated. I have purchased a pair of Steel Series Arctis 7 which came to me used but at a very keen price from someone who has upgraded. They are mint and as new and a lot comfier and amazing sound. I can understand how people hear me coming now. Doh.

So I'm going to test those and see what happens. I've also completely uninstalled the icue software and left that off the audio (just mouse & keyboard).

Surround Sound headsets are the way forward. :-D I hope you have better luck with the new headset.

Problem resolved by these Steel Series Arctis7. Lovely headphones.

Thanks for the help peeps.
