The headset is basically a "digital" device to the system and when you use this, the headset becomes the default playback device, rather than your PC's sound device. As you can only have one default playback device, your best option is to use a standard "analog" headset, which does use your PC's sound device (Realtek) for your application rather than the USB type.

A cheap desktop mic plugged into the sound card would do.

What we are telling you is "you can't get there from here" with the USB device.

It's obviously not what you want to hear.
