A friend and I both pre-ordered the new Xbox Wireless Headset (released 16 Mar '21) to use it with Gears 5 on PC (via Xbox Wireless Adapter). Audio constantly cuts out / stutters - unplayable. Both of us have the same issue (all updates installed).
Sounds very similar to the issue reported on other wireless headsets (Turtle Beach etc) since Sep '19.
Looking into it - the solution to the previous issue was:
Unfortunately the new Xbox Wireless Headset is already locked at 48 kHz, So this isn’t an option.
Would love to know if this is going to be looked at anytime soon,
YES!!! I have exactly the same issue.
New headset works perfectly for everything else except Gears 5.
Gears 5 is basically the only game I play, so the headset is back in the box and will probably be returned to Microsoft if no fix is on the horizon soon.
Finally a thread on this , Same issue, connected via wireless adapter to PC. The audio stuttering makes the game unplayable and no suggested solution seems to work. If I use my wireless HyperX cloud flight headset there’s no issues, but I want to be able to experience the Dolby Atmos that the game prominently displays at startup.
