Corsair HS1 left turns into right and massive pop when frapsing.
 
So I have had this Corsair HS1 headset for about 3 weeks now and it has been pretty good when it comes to sound quality and all.

But the issues I have are below.


#1: Randomly the sounds seem to believe that left equals right and right equals left, meaning sounds that appear on the left in a movie or a game appear in the right cup. And it gets temporarily fixed by switching between Stereo and 7.1 or whichever mode you were using.
But after a while it gets back to being misplaced again.
And it renders me unable to use this headset, its really really really annoying and ruins gameplay and enjoyment for movies. If a guy appears talking on the left, you hear it from the right, its so misplaced. And sometimes even sounds from the front appear as behind, and behind appears as front.

I have reinstalled the so-called driver and have had no difference, I have also tried uninstalling my motherboards own sound (Realtek) but no luck, but without that I cannot record sounds using fraps.
I also reformatted the PC once, no luck either and wont really try that again.


#2: Massive pop/crackle when using this headset together with fraps recording. There is no crackle or pops in the raw video file recorded though.


#3: Is there no way to be able to change the volume of the headset and Windows individually? Like on a normal 3.5mm Headset?
Its really loud at default and already hits painful noiselevels at only 15/100 Windows volume level.


#4: Balance seem to go +/- 1 on left or right while below 16 in vol level.

The audio switching left to right i think is due to the c-media software, i have a HT Omega Claro+ (uses same software) that does the same thing while playing TF2. I will load into game and notice left and right audio is switched at random.

When it happens try messing with the Effects tab, change the EQ to like soft rock then back to what you used before, also turn on one of the Environment settings and then back off. Wouldn't hurt to disable/enable 7.1 virtual sound too.

The HS1 has it's own software, and is usb and c-media shouldn't have any effect on it.

I have no idea what c-media is but the fixes he mentioned works. But I want a permanent fix, and in some games you cant alt-tab out, like Black Ops.

This being an official forum and all, its pretty dead for an official, even unofficial forums got more activity.

Anyhow, no solution to the left/right swapping?
Happens no matter which output mode you select, Stereo, 4.0, 5.1 or 7.1.
And it pisses me off cause you CANT RMA it because its a Software problem not hardware..

Please connect the Corsair Hs1 USB Headset.

The image says it all.

Just started to bug out completely on me, and I tried reinstalling the software, three times, but nothing changed.

The system clearly tells me the headset is plugged in and working fine, yet the software tells me it isnt plugged in.
And I clearly hear sound from windows while clicking folders or doing other things, but I cant get any sound from anything else. And its now behaving as if it was a normal 3.5mm stereo headset meaning the sounds are as if the sources are standing next to your head and not virtual or anything. Meaning my other headset which is a 20$ headset work better right now which is a shame.

Oh and when I start winamp for example, no sound will play, the LED on the vol control will rapidly flash red/blue or just flash in blue.

Wow, you cant even get rid of the software, its uninstalled and all, yet its shown in the control panel, not even windows add/remove can find it neither can ccleaner.

when using the HS1 dont you have to disable any other sound device first?

No. Nope. Never.

You should probably disable it and try the Corsair HS1. You don't want 2 sound devices operating at the same time. The HS1 has its own sound card/processor.

you may want to try anyway to disable it.

As stated. I have before.
And that is NOT the issue, and how else would one Record WhatUHear/StereoMix when there is no such thing WITHOUT the Onboard sound?
