  1. Music Stops If I Use My Microphone


    I'm using a wireless bluetooth headset (HyperX MIX). If I'm listening to music (on Spotify) and I try to use my microphone (e.g. in the browser, Discord, League of Legends) then my music stops entirely. If I go and view the playback devices volume indicator and I turn up the music volume then I see the volume change but I still don't hear any music?


    I've tested on my phone and macbook and the headset functions as expected. I updated Windows, all my bluetooth/audio drivers, removed my bluetooth device and paired it again, disabled "full-control" and "audio enhancements" (restarting my computer several times in between)...but nothing seemed to fix the issue?


    One strange thing I noticed is that it looks as if the microphone is listed as both a playback and recording device (see below)? And when I switch from the playback to recording device tab (in Sound Control Panel) while listening to music it does the same thing (can't hear music). I can listen to music and hear the audio in games at the same time, just not if I try to use voice chat.

  2. Microphone suddenly stopped working

    My microphone is still not working. I even checked the BIOS as someone had suggested but there is no listing for the microphone in there.
