That's fine, but mine didn't and I still had the driver problem (booming audio) and didnt want to sit through customer service rigamarole and/or wait weeks for a driver update. Good luck to ya, though.

What can I do to make these sound like the v1's or are the v2's just a lower quality device? I can't even make them sound as good as a pair of earbuds plugged into the onboard audio (which is how I am playing games now).
it's true, v2s are too much bassy

Its not the V2's, it's the drivers, for music I use Razer Surround which gives really good sound quality but seems to glitch in 7.1 surround (glitchy response) for some games, but for music and nonfps gaming its the way to go, im amazed that they released a product without even finishing drivers so they would work properly..

Still, the Razer Surround drivers give superior sound quality over Corsairs drivers
