    Headset Communcations - In Game Audio Does Not Dampen For Comms

    Hi Guys,

    Would really appreciate some help with this as it's starting to drive me batty! Whilst gaming (or listening to music, watching films) the audio feed does not dampen when someone I'm in a party/conversation with starts to talk.

    If I'm using more than one source (Steam for gaming and Skype for chat) I can set the comms much louder in the volume mixer than the gaming audio, this alleviates the issue to some extent (besides it being like I'm constantly being shouted at) but if I'm using a single source it all comes in as one, meaning the person talking just gets drowned out to the point that I have to stop playing the game to hear WTF they're saying.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? The headset in question is a Logitech G933 wireless.

    Thanks in advance for any replies

    not really , some games have a setting to turn down volume when using that specific games voip but its sketchy at best , the only real solution is the one your already using , turn chat up and game down (via the games own volume setting in audio settings) till they are both at an acceptable level. We use teamspeak and ive found that to be the most effective and easiest method. then of course you'll get issues with peoples recording levels set too low so you cant hear them and others who put their mic boost up to 30% and wreck your eardrums , its a nightmare
