I've set all my settings back to default so I can use my headset and mic again (after a few months of blissful silence) but I still can't hear people. My mic works fine. If I am in a AL party the little indicator pops up saying my mic is working, but otherwise, nothing. It works if I am an XBox party too but no one can hear me when I am in a party of one.
Occassionally I can hear randoms at the start of the game, but they vanish after three or four seconds. I know they could be muting themselves but it's always the same ... a few seconds then silence.
Sound seems really screwed with this game. A couple of times I have heard brief snatches of game audio while on the main menu screen.
So, why can't I hear randoms anymore when I am solo queueing and not in a party?

@OldAndKnackeredso your teammates are in the chat party with you?
if not then of course they will not hear you and you will not hear them.
once you create a party then sound including voice chat will be prioritized to chat party.
you need to either go to settings and prioritize in-game sound or just leave the party or let your team join your chat party
and if you are not in a party then maybe they are in their own party so the result is same
OK cool....have you actually tested this in a xbox party with somebody else, or was that a solo test? If it was I'd try again with a player I the party.
If you've got normal set of earphones in the house try using them for a game next time you party up in game. That will 100% rule out hardware issues and its just your settings or the game if neither suggestions work.
@OldAndKnackered Right ok, I'm with you now thanks for the clarification.
Then that is indeed kinda weird....let me have coffee and wake up then I'll go have a nosey through the settings and test it out myself.
@Zeelmaekers Have you seen anything similar to this issue mentioned my dude? I know you help a lot of people with troubleshooting.
@OldAndKnackered Hahaha brilliant.
Hmmm....I'll have a search around now then and see if I can find a solution. Will get back to you if I find something.....I'll drop you a club invite if I find something to test it out.
