I don’t have the solution but you are not alone.

We can be thankful, though. It used to be that enabling the headset AFTER starting a flight would cause an immediate CTD. I just got into the habit of starting VR BEFORE starting the sim.

I have the same issue. ATC is heard in the Reverb G2 but all other noises are in the monitor speakers. Very strange.

Oh ok. No for me its just all the sound not switching, incl. background music, ATC, aircraft noise
