For all platforms, we recommend setting your system audio to “play through headset” for optimal experience with our in-game settings. In addition, please follow these guidelines for the best audio experience when playing the Destiny Beta:
PlayStation 4: Make sure your system settings set to “Chat Audio,” for optimal use with in-game audio.PlayStation 3: Make sure system output device is set to “USB Headphone,” “Bluetooth Headphone,” or whichever audio device appears, and your in-game settings should apply correctly.Xbox 360: Set your system audio settings to “Headset Only” for the best audio experience with any in-game settings.Xbox One: Since the Xbox One lacks any system settings regarding voice chat and audio, you may choose any in-game settings you wish for the optimal audio experience.
A few other notes regarding audio:
- Using Turtle Beach Headphones (XP Seven) without the Audio Control Unit will make people in front of you quiet. You also won’t hear players when switched over to “radio” mode
- When using XP Seven Turtle Beach headphones without the Audio Control Unit will cause players in front of you to be quiet, nor will you hear players when switched over to “radio” mode (ie. when the speaker is not close to the player)
- Make sure your system audio settings match your physical setup – Using system sound settings that’s set to 5.1 or 7.1 on a sound system that only supports stereo (e.g. Samsung TV UN22F5000) will make players behind you quiet
- Make sure that platform audio output matches your audio system channel configuration – if you’re only using two speakers or your television speakers, set your platform configuration to Stereo
- We are also tracking an issue were players may lose voice functionality in Xbox One Party Chat if the Party app is unsnapped. Please check out our Party Chat page for more information
