I can't play games and skype at the same time with headphones?

So my friends and I play PC games a lot and use Skype to talk. I can't use my old wireless headset anymore because my brother needs it for PS3. I now use Beats Studios by Dr. Dre, the thing is now whenever I am over Skype with them all other volumes, such as games (Even Youtube and other internet sounds) play out loud instead of through the headset. I've tried multiple things but nothing seems to work, can someone please help me?

 

P.S. I have beats audio on my computer, which I just finished uninstalling, but it still doesn't work.

If you can hear your friends from the headset but all the other sounds for speakers. That probably means you have your headset as your default communication device and the speakers as your default device. What you have to do to hear all the sounds from headset, is to change your headset to be your default device.

 

Right-click speaker icon on your computers right-down-corner next to where time is shown and select playback devices. You should see list that has both your headset and your speakers. Right-click your headsets name and select "default device".
