    just bought Razer Thresher 7.1 [PS4] yesterday to play Fortnite and Overwatch but seems to be a problem here.

    I've done all the setting from the Information Guide

    Setting > Sound and Screen > Audio Output > Primary = Digital Out (OPTICAL) and Audio Format = Linear PCM

    Setting > Devices > Audio Devices > Input and Output = USB Headset (Razer Thresher 7.1) and Output to headphones = Chat audio

    The Problem is it not just Chat audio that come through the headphones but its everything (System Music, Game Audio) The "Chat Audio" look the same as "All Audio" nothin difference.

    Did i did something wrong? i've try check everything about 10 times already still got every audio in "Chat audio" setting. I just want only just "Chat audio" to output not every audio (game, system)

    Any idea please?

    I don't know why you would want only chat audio, as these headsets are really good at keeping all other sounds out.

    I assume the setup you want is to have game audio come out of your TV/Sound system/speakers, then have chat and mic only for the head set.

    Then you want to set in Sound and Audio of PS4 back to HDMI not optical.

    Than in the other sound menu you get from holding in the PS4 button set there chat only input and out put etc...

    The reason for setting to optical is so this passes through the DD bit stream directly to your headphones, but it tells the PS4 you are not really connected using a headset if you like, but still gives u the mic volume, so it outputs everything through the head set as if it was a sound receiver. At least that's what i think it does. Hope this helps.

    I believe I am having a similar Issue in that all the audio goes through the chat control and not the respective game and chat controls. Haven't found a solution but i might play around with the settings so ill update if i figure something out

    Was hoping for some information also playing games with friends is hard now because i cant turn game or chat audio up or down just both at the same time. My old headset (turtle beach elite 800) seem like they are much higher quality and £100 less. I thought i was getting an upgrade but seems like i paid so much more just for a name and with it being my second razer product i dont think i would get a third
