I have been having problems with my astro's recently. They have been cutting out and not working, causing me to restart my computer often. But then this happened. The headset just cut out and I can't hear anything anymore. When I take a look at my sound tab I can see that the headset is picking up my microphone and playing the sound, I just can't hear it. I tried it in all my usb ports to no avail. Can anyone help me?

usb only connects the mic and power for mixamp actual sound comes trough the spdif connection check to see if it is connected properly and correct playback device is selected on the PC.

heyy, i had the exact same problem as you and came to this link to find help. on one side of your headset (i think right) there are to words, something(maybe voice?) and game, you can push down on these buttons and they shange how much of each you can hear (just push down on the words) and click on the game enough times and you should start hearing your game volume again! Hoped this helped!
