People might view this suggestion in different ways but here goes.
I have adequate hearing. I have tried alternately:
- a high quality sound bar and speakers (Optical)
- a hi-fi grade set of Beyerdynamic headphones (oooh, get me!) with standard 3.5mm jack, and
- I’ve also got a run of the mill work Jabra set paired with a mic (USB) from work at £120 or so
I’ve tested this with all three.
On none of these can I hear people clearly when they talk in game on the voice chat.
I have audio level on 100%. It’s unintelligible.
I can touch type pretty quickly to send messages in game, but I know some don’t. It’s so frustrating when people talk and I’ve just no idea what they want. It kills any semblance of a pug group working together across different 1st languages and/or typing speed.
Can we PLEASE have a tick box ducking option?
Sure if someone wants to start singing then I’ll mute them, maybe - unless they’re good - but as it stands it’s just a void of frustration where they think I can hear them but I just can’t.
PS: this isn’t a “tech” issue, or a bug as such, so I’ve stuck it here.
