    I just don't get it. This isn't the only device issue reported on the bug tracker where people are saying their device works with every other game including Minecraft:Java Edition. There are reports saying that about other audio brands and setups, about keyboards, mouses and controllers, and about connectivity issues, and now with RenderDragon about GPUs/chipsets as well. Bedrock is supposed to be the cross-platform version. Supporting all hardware and setups that Java Edition supports should be a baseline.

    Here in 2022—this is still a problem. It infuriates me that this bug still persists as an issue 6 years after it had been reported. A severe bug like this—that makes the game unplayable for those who get easily nauseous—should be fixed immediately. No if's, and's, or but's.

    The Bedrock Team needs to be aware that this is a severe issue and at least make an attempt to fixing it. I dislike that I have to play the game muted/with my PC speakers rather than with my headphones that have worked for every game that I've played (along with Minecraft: Java Editon).

    I know there are a lot of posts out there, including in the official bug tracker, that say to use your speakers instead of your headset but that isn't a viable option for everyone. Personally, I can't do it because I'm a streamer, and game audio coming out of my speakers is picked up by my microphone causing audio issues on stream. For me it's an inconvenience, however, some people are hard of hearing and cannot hear the game sounds correctly without a headset. For them it's an accessibility issue and as such should not have been allowed to go uncorrected for so long.

    It is unreasonable for Microsoft or Mojang to just brush this issue aside the way they have for so long. As others have said previously, Bedrock is supposed to be the cross-platform version and as such should have a greater level of compatibility than Java. When the issue has been reported across so wide a range of hardware and software with the only common factor being Minecraft Bedrock edition, it becomes clear where the issue lies. No one should be expected to uninstall and reinstall their audio programs just to play the Bedrock version.

    4 years later this is still a problem. No real way I've been able to find that fixes this. So for now we stay using java edition.
