Incoming voice chat hard to hear, much less understand.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been having a problem with the last few games I've played and I'm starting to get worried there might be something wrong on my end.

First of all, my setup:
Sound card: Asus Xonar DX
Speakers: Logitech Z906
Drivers: I use the UNi Xonar drivers.


The problem:
Incoming voice chat is extremely muffled and almost impossible to understand. Especially over the noise of a hectic game.

Weirdly I never really had a problem with this until recently. The past few weeks/months I have had problems with:
Steam voice chat
War Thunder
Payday 2
Battlefield 4 beta

People tell me they hear me just fine when I speak but I can barely hear anything they are saying.
If anyone has any experience with these speakers/drivers I would very much like to read your advice.

Have you tried with other programs? Such as Mumble, Ventrilo, Teamspeak or Skype? I'm interested if those do the same thing as well.

I think the problem is more that the audio from the games is obfuscating or hindering the voices. Like I would need a way to boost the incoming voices without having to turn up the general audio and in-game edits don't seem to be working.
