Driver Headphone Issues

I installed all of the correct drivers for my motherboard and the only thing that isn't working is audio from my headset. When I attempt to watch youtube videos or game I can hear the background perfectly but everyone talking is muted or slightly making sound. It cant be my headset because I tried using two different headsets with the same result. I am running windows 10 64bit. Another thing to mention is when I open "Playback Devices" my headphones are labeled as speakers. my build https://pcpartpicker.com/list/vKD6LD

  1. Headphones or speakers plugged in with an analog connection (3.5mm jack) do not have a driver.
    The audio device, which has a driver, is the motherboard audio chipset. This output is often called "speakers", but you could plug in speakers, a headset or an amplifier.
    The audio drivers may also come with software which allows audio effects and optimisation for headphones or speakers.

    Try turning the volume down a bit and see if it makes a difference.
    Test the headset on another device.
    Check that there are no funny graphic equaliser settings. Voice is in a specific range of frequencies.
  2. I tried turning the volume down and nothing changed. Tested the headset on my other computer and it worked fine.
    How do I do the last step? Something else to mention is when I plug in my headset on another computer the pc recognizes the headset as astros a40 but when I plug the headset into my new pc the computer recognizes the headset as speakers realtek high definition audio.

    Is this connected to an audio jack on your motherboard or to a USB port?
    If it is a USB headset you will need to download the latest drivers from the Astros website.
