Question Audio Difficulties Using Windows 10


Aug 21, 2019
I have a dual monitor setup that I can't seem to get setup right in regards to audio.
Monitor 1) Connected to speakers via 3.5mm jack. I'd like this monitor to play sound only from this monitor, which is usually on Google Chrome. This seems to be functioning properly, Google Chrome audio is coming out of speakers.
Monitor 2) Gaming monitor. I'd like this audio to be played through my headset. The problem I am having is that the game audio is being played through the headset, but the voices from online players is being played through the speakers. Why are the voices of online players being played through the speakers and not my headset while the game audio is being played through my headset?

Soundcard: Creative SoundBlaster Audigy RX
Headset: HyperX Cloud Alpha
Speakers: Creative Inspire T12 2.0 Multimedia Speaker System with Bass Flex Technology

I am unsure why I am having so much difficulty getting this to function properly. I have confirmed that the SoundBlaster soundcard driver is up to date. Do I need to using a 3.5mm splitter from the headset to two separate SoundCard inputs on the Audigy RX? I am currently going from headset to 3.5mm female to 2x 3.5mm male splitter, one male 3.5 (mic) going to port 1 and the other male 3.5 (audio) going to port 4. To use my headset (both mic and audio), what port/s should I be plugging the headset into on the Audigy RX soundcard?

I play games on Monitor 2 (gaming monitor) using my xbox controller which is plugged into my case via USB port on front of case, if that makes any difference. My headset (HyperX Cloud Alpha) is plugged directly into my soundcard as explained above.
Appreciate any help you can provide.
