Default Choosing your sound output

Hi everyone, I just have a quick question. I use Steam for gaming and I dont know how to tell my comp to put voice through my headset, and other sound through my speakers.

The reason for this is that I use an Xbox wireless mic, and the sound quality is good enough for voice, but makes games sound like crap. The mic uses USB and not the conventional sound plugin.

If there is a way to do this, it would be much appreciated if someone could tell me.

Default Re: Choosing your sound output

Hello,

If you go to your sound settings in your control panel, you can choose the default playback and recording devices.

Make sure to set the volume for it as well. Setting the 20dB boost helps quite a bit too.

Also if you want both devices playing the games sounds you can check the box on the bottom left that says "Only use default devices".
