HS60 Pro Surround - Audio Dampening

Recommended Posts

Just picked up a HS60 Pro Surround after using my Void Pro for 4+ years. I loved them and never experienced this issue with them.


The issue: Audio keeping fluctuating when there's some sort of voice chat. For instance, I usually run Pandora + Twitch.


I've noticed since using my HS60's that when a streamer talks, my music, or even theirs, will dampen. As soon as the dialog ends, the music reverts to the normal volume. I'd say the music volume reduces about 5-10%. It doesn't happen with the jack, and only with the 7.1 dongle. This even occurs with in-game voice dialog. It's incredibly distracting and frustrating.


I've turned surround/audio repositioning off and on, I've reinstalled drivers, and tried the default EQ's. Nothing has fixed the issue.


Ideally, I'd like to use the 7.1 dongle so I can use my EQ profile that I used with my Void Pro.


What am I missing?

How do you have it connected?


Does this issue happen when iCUE is not running?


It sounds like audio repositioning, try a repair of iCUE and see if that resolves the issue.
