i really felt this problem should be given some attention after a decade of persistence. it's a problem since operation flashpoint and still have not been fixed yet :(

i realize it's a low priority item on the to do list, but i think a decade is a long enough time to stay on that list.

sometimes i need to use speakers so i can hear other people talking to me of knocking on the door but sometimes i can use headphones for more immersion. not having the ability to do this on the fly really hampers my ability to enjoy the game fully.

please push this up the priority list
