Barracuda X 2022 disconnecting from dongle

Have the same problem since the first minute.

 

Firmware is up to date. The automatic shutdown is set to “Never” in the mobile app.

 

The headset keeps switching off 20 secs after there is anything played in it without hearing the female voice that says “Power off”. It also switches off when I quit a game (close the app) and go to Chrome for example. 

 

The headset is connected to the PC via the extender cable that came with it to a USB 3.0 port. I have no external hdd connected to the PC.

 

I use Windows 11 Pro. Also I had to disable all my output sound devices, because every time the headset switches off by itself the default output device goes to the next one in the list.

Anyone found a solution to this? Mine only has a disconnection issue when playing PUBG. All other games and applications are fine. 

 

I applied the recent update to the headset but still same issue.

same issue it shutoff the headset if they not playing any sound on the headset.

Tried with Razer Support, but they kept sending me templated emails and ofc didn’t help at all. Obviously they also have no idea how to fix that problem, which is kinda idiotic. I’m so sad that they make such a nice headset but can’t make it work properly. Hope they will release a firmware update with a fix ASAP!

I am using now on a bluetooth connection, i dont see any issue now on a headset automatically shutting off when no sounds detected. Running on windows 11 pro.

guys,

 

my headset was shutting off while playing pubg.. i bought a new computer and its not happening anymore (really weird)  

try updating your bios and audio drivers on intell.

 

Same problem here 2024

I have not been able to find a solution, the only thing that prevents it from turning off/disconnecting in my case is to keep something always playing, for example music. 

Dear gaming geeks the issue with the infamous pair of razer barracuda 2022, is likewise nonother than the renowned frequency ,you know ,it says right on the box about it (2.4hz) ,your pc might spit some frequencies here and there that will cause either stutters and crackling in your headphones wich might be unpleasant but ,something interesting about frequencies is the heat, kinda weird to hear but yeah its true basically when the temperature increases, the wavelength of the electromagnetic radiation emitted by the electron decreases, on short when the higer the temperature the higher the frequency. As a problem solver I suggest keep your pc well cooled and keep the dongle away from heat and frequencies as i may say here as always im pleased to help you all ,if the problem persists i suggest updating the bios and maybe update your drivers and check of any other outdated apps in the background that might eat up your pc in time , farewell geeks hope the solution fixed your problem if not dont blame me :).

with all due respect,

Zara.

same problem with dongle!

I found three different type of issue:

1- randomly when I turn on the headset i can hear a cracking noise and i can’t hear PC audio. I can solve this switching Windows spatial audio on\off. This somethimes it works for all my game session (or wathever I’m doing) somtehtimes not, i.e. after i finish to whach a video the cracking starts again  and i need to switch on\off spatial audio to continue to hear.

2- headset lost connection with dongle and I can hear the voice “pairing” but never pair till i plug off and plug in the dongle

3- headset turns off

more in general issues 2 and 3 are more rare and usually happens after issue 1.

Till now never happen that these issues coming when there is audio on headphone. 

As workaround I start a music and after that turn on the headset… seems to work since now...

I hope that these info helps to solve the problem in the next fw update!

 

Note: my headset is barracuda x 2022 fw v1.6.0_r1 stock

I never use bluethot mode

I am coming back to comment on something that seems to have solved my problem.

I actually did several things:

1- Delete completly sorround sound on my pc.

2- I deleted the barracuda drivers in the device manager.

3- I re-installed the barracuda drivers (they are the automatic ones when you connect the dongle).

4- I reinstalled sorround sound

5- Do not change any of the devices that are installed, do not disable microphones or anything else, leave them there and just do not use them.

6- I changed the usb port of the dongle.

3- I put the emitter literally in front of me next to the keyboard using the extension cable.

This partially solved my problem

Now it keeps turning off but when I put something to play it turns on after a second.

(sometimes it stays on low volume and I have to turn the volume up and down in Windows and it fixes it).

I hope this helps.

What If NVIDIA Audio Has SomeThing To Do With That Issue 🤔 I Changed Now In 7.1 SurRound Sound My HeadSet To Speakers And The HeadSet Just DisAppeared lol. ReInstall Changed Nothing, AlThough Windows Audio Service Was ReStarted On New Installation. I UnPlugged The Dongle And Plugged It Again, But Now HeadSet Think That It’s Connected To PC 🤣Even HUD Comes Up, But No Audio 🤷‍♂️ WTF

I followed steps 1, 2, 3, and 4, and the problem seems to have disappeared. I think that the drivers for surround sound may be causing some interference with the proper functionality.

 

Updating the chipset driver was the solution for me.
