So I do not know if that is an Xbox bug or a Fortnite bug, nevertheless it solely began occurring after I modified over to Xbox Collection X and had to make use of USB as a substitute of Optical.
I’ve used each Astro A40 and A50s, each have the identical difficulty. So it could be a problem with xbox and USB headsets.
However seeing as Fortnite is mainly the one recreation I exploit comms on, it is the one recreation I do know of with this difficulty.
The fundamentals of it’s on Xbox, the sport chat voice channel will get combined into the sport audio, and there isn’t any actual separation of them. This implies the one strategy to management the audio of voice chat is through the in recreation slider.
The rationale that is now a problem is as a result of Astro headsets are designed to utilize a Voice channel, and a Sport channel. Which lets you regulate the amount in your Astro headset vs within the recreation itself.
That is additionally a problem in relation to recording movies (with the inbuilt Xbox DVR) as a result of it now captures folks speaking in recreation however not you, as a result of your mic is not within the recreation audio channel (makes for some actually awkward movies).
I did do a take a look at the recognized points for xbox collection x, and considered one of them is near my drawback. Nevertheless it lists 3.5mm headphones and the controller; the place I am utilizing USB.
TL;DR: Participant voices are taking part in on the identical channel as recreation sounds, making sound mixing borked on Astros (And certain different headsets with recreation/voice channels).
