These are some of the basic fixes that you can try to fix the above bug. I have placed them first because it could be something minor and easily solved.

  • Check your Audio device: Before we get into more serious fixes this is a basic thing that you can try. Check if the headset or the audio device you use is working. You can do that by playing some other game or connecting it to some other device.
  • Is it connected: Another silly mistake but one which anyone can easily make is forgetting to connect the device. If you have a wired audio device then check if it is properly connected and not loose or disconnected. And as for wireless devices remember to pair them before using them.
  • Check your Volume: It could be that you or someone muted the volume on your PC. If your headset has dedicated volume control buttons then check those as well.

Here are some general fixes that you can try if the above cases weren’t the cause of the problem.

  • Update your Drivers: Audio drivers are equally important as graphics drivers. Most of the time we update the latter but ignore audio drivers. Make sure they are up to date.
  • Avoid using USB or Bluetooth devices: Use a dual I/O headset for microphone and mic or a headset that has a 3.5mm jack. Wireless headphones players are mostly the ones that face this issue. And USB Headsets aren’t as reliable.
  • Disable Windows Sonic: Windows Sonic is already buggy. Using it when playing FH5 is a recipe for disaster. Turn off the Windows sonic and spatial sound. Once it is off try playing the game again to see if it helps.
  • Choose the right Audio device: There is a chance your headset works fine but isn’t set as the audio device and the game is using the default audio output. Open the sound settings and choose your headset as the output device.
  • Deactivate the surround sound: If you have a headset that supports surround sounds then that might also be a cause of this issue. Disable the feature and try playing the game to see if it helps.
