There is an actual client for PC that works with Windows 7-10, then you will be able to use any wired/wireless headset & control all sound volumes through the pc.

 

I am currently using this headset https://www.amazon.c...,aps,192&sr=8-6 which has a mute button on the left side, I have no complaints with them.


Does Windows 10 let you direct sound from different apps to different outputs?  I'd prefer to keep the game audio going to my receiver and the discord to the headset so my kids can't hear those conversations if they're in the room.  Otherwise I may still end up using my phone for discord.

 

It's a slow day at work, so I finally have some time to do a little deeper digging.  I think I'm going to go with this headset: https://www.amazon.com/Bluetooth-Earpiece-Cancelling-Wireless-Earphones/dp/B081N78GZ8/ref=sr_1_22?keywords=bluetooth%2Bheadset%2Bwith%2Bmute&qid=1576768804&s=electronics&sr=1-22&th=1

From the reviews and questions it sounds like it has a muted reminder prompt every minute or two.  The button is easily accessible and can be worn on the left.

Hey.. Perky and I may have had some huge disagreements over time. But I'll give credit where it's due. He's being genuinely helpful and kind and I actually appreciate that. I hope he keeps up with this track. THIS lion I can like and appreciate :P

Not sure, I would have to test it. I have only ever used speakers or headset not both but I think it's possible.

 

edit: yes you can

 

under windows settings>system>sound>other sound options(app volume & device preferences)

there you can set  input/output & level for each app

Nice!  I'll have to play with that.  It will be useful elsewhere too.

There's also a free Windows app called EarTrumpet that allows you to send output from different applications to different speakers.  Works very well when I play the game on my headset yet want to listen to the Bears lose yet another game on a radio app.

Da Bearsss!

 

never tried a wireless headset before.    I'll try the MPOW 059, now on sale for $32 on amaz

 

I pulled too sharply on the wires on my Sennheisers and now I have to wiggle it a bit     

if I could get inside it... but I don't see any screws
