All sound goes through headset, it doesnt seperate chat and game sound.
You don't have to be an elite gamer to get a proper headset, my main gripe about these is you're just going to bug the other people in the chat by providing them with an echo hearing their game and your game audio coming out of your tv
This is fine for most purposes, not everyone is an elite gamer...
Some people eh
1 of my mates has just bought this headset. It is just for when he is in a party with us and not playing a sweaty game. Not everybody takes gaming so serious. Some of us do it just to chill with friends
