Please help: Cant hear Microphone in Headphone (AMD High Definition Audio/OBS)

Hello everybody,

this one is driving me bonkers and I seriously think the solution to this might be a only simply a click away, I would so much appreciate it if anyone if you could help me.

My issue: I´m using OBS Studio and I have connected a Gaming Headset (with a microphone) to the PC. Audio is recording fine, sound is great, but I just can´t hear myself while recording when I turn off monitoring in OBS. When I turn it on, I hear myself double. I´ve already tried these fixes and they have not worked out:

  1. Searching for the microphone in the Windows Settings/Playback-tab. Not found.
  2. Switching off audio monitoring in OBS - can´t hear my voice at all anymore

I´m so frustrated with this, can anyone enlighten me ?

Audio Monitoring is a setting to allow you to check Audio Balance and Playback,. so you're hearing what you (would / are) streaming via OBS. 

So yeah, you'll hear yourself.. albeit with a small delay. 

This is almost identical to the Windows Audio - Sound Control Panel > Properties > Listen > "Listen to this device" setting. 

Nothing is wrong, everything is working "As Intended"
