Default Corsair Vengeance 1500 volume drops on its own

Hi all -

I'm a Mac guy posting on behalf of my son, so forgive me for not having all the system specs on hand. Windows 10, all the most recent updates, drivers, and control panel.

The Corsair Vengeance 1500 USB headset seems to work fine for a while, and then it's like a poltergeist is holding down the volume key on the keyboard. The volume drops to nothing, and as soon as we click the keyboard shortcut to turn the volume back up, the ghost takes over and holds the volume down key until there's no sound.

After some research we thought it might be Skype taking over, but it happens even without Skype running. It happens using any software, although most often it's running Steam or Overwatch.

We've also fooled with the exclusivity options in the audio properties, but that hasn't helped. I have a machine running Windows 7 Pro on which we've tested the Vengeance and it seems to work OK, but again, sometimes it takes a while for the problem to occur.

I can't seem to find anyone else who has this same problem. Any ideas?
