MS Teams keeps killing my headset?

    It's a wired USB headset from Sennheiser, nothing special £30 or so but it's a current model bought to replace an older once I'd worn out. Teams client on Mac.

    I'm not aware it HAS any software to update but surely Teams should just be using standard communications API to your selected sound device, like everything else, and this headset appears to work on other apps. I'm sure it used to work, unless it's a Mac OS update issue (Catalina).

    Several people have reported the web version of Teams doesn't have this problem so I might try that. If so this would imply Teams IS doing something 'clever'...

      Teams is just a program built on chromium - it's nothing fancier than a posh customised web browser.
      merely at clientco for the entertainment

        I wonder why the web version lacks many features then... but that's quite interesting, thanks.

        Maybe I'll try it in Safari next.

          Amazon issued a no-quibble refund even though I bought in 2019, so I've just decided to buy something else and test. Gone for something from Jabra this time... they even have the "Teams certified" sticker which presumably means damn-all.

            That wouldn't surprise me given that you are using a Mac - there's probably a get out clause (and a specification saying only tested with Windows 10 1903 edition KB123456).
