Default Vengeance 1500 crackling only with driver

Hi,

Problem with my corsair 1500 is crackling, with different levels, when i start a game, firefox....

It only happens when driver 1.1 is installed. With Windows Drivers no problem.

I tried a lot of fixes:

-Switching USB port
-Disabling hardware acceleration
....

On another computer, there is no problem even if the driver is installed.

Seeing as the headset works on another PC, the headset itself is not the problem. Must be a software issue, like driver interfering with something...

I tried the 2.0.7 drivers, the problem dissapears but volume is way too loud, even with a "1" on windows volume control.

Thank you for your attention.

also would be appreciated if you sent me the email, im experiencing crackling on left cup with 1.1 drivers and on both cups with 2.0.19, really annoying, tried on different PC, same thing, crackling is still there, but no crackling without any drivers.

Also having these issues, nothing before I decided to upgrade the software and drivers, bad call I reckon...

Please send me one of that e-mail as well, or just a PM here on site!

The email would have most likely been a beta version of the v2.0.X drivers.

@Visible

Try the headset on another computer as well as the generic Microsoft drivers. Does the headset still crackle?

@Quazer

Were you on v1.1 before you upgraded?

If yes, you can get v1.1 here

Yup, tried on 3 different pc's, Ailienware X51 / Ailienware X15 / and a simple stationary laptop, all experience crackling after installing drivers.

If the headset is under two years old, you can request an RMA to replace the headset.
