In game voice chat volume

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I have a problem with in-game voice chat volume. I got Sony PS4 Gold Wireless Headset and I simply don´t know how to tune volume to hear people loudly. The only time I hear people talking is when I decrease all other sound effects in game to minimum (1) and increase volume on headset to full. But even then when there is shooting I simply don´t hear people properly.

Any tips? Thanks in advance :)

I have the same problem with the PS4 in general using the provided POS mono headset. $435 for a console that came with the absolute lowest grade quality headset I have ever owned. I can't even use this thing on Overwatch on PC.
Not using the headset I can hear everyone just fine, but as soon as I plug it into the controller the sound goes to complete crap.

I have the PS4 Gold Wireless Headset. It's great!

It has a really neat feature that allows you to balance the chat voice in relation to the game sound. I use this all the time. You do this by pressing on either the SOUND or CHAT button. I use my left hand, to access the left side of the headset on my head. Hitting the CHAT button increase's the voice chat volume in relation to the rest of your game's sound. Hitting the SOUND button increases your game's volume in relation to voice chat. It will actively raise one volume while lowering the other. This is independent of what you have the volumes set to in your game's setting. It's just affecting the volume coming out of your headset.  If you repeatedly press the CHAT volume, it will eventually make it so you can only hear voice chat, and not hear any game sound. Likewise, if you repeatedly hit the SOUND button, it will make it so you can only hear game sound, and can't hear any voice chat.

So in your example above, try hitting the CHAT button a few times to make voice chat louder in relation to your game sound. If it decreases game sound too much, then hit the SOUND button until it's balanced to your liking. During my playtime, I may have to make additional adjustments as other people join the game's voice chat. They are talking too loud, or too quiet, or have a bad setup, etc.

This is really handy to use on the fly, especially if someone is too loud in voice chat. But I don't want to mute them. And I can't pause the action. Like during a multiplayer game.

One caveat: This works for games where you are using it's in game voice chat. I can't recall if I used this during a PS4's party chat function. PS4's party chat function is where you set up a chat lobby outside of a game. Like you turn your PS4 on, start a Party Chat, before you are playing any game. I would assume the SOUND/CHAT buttons work as described above in a PARTY CHAT. But I don't know for sure.

That thing is terrible. I gave up on it after using it for day.
