I'm using these drivers, the mic does not have "mic boost" and it's also missing from the windows microphone control panel settings (boost +10 dB) etc. The mic is really really low even at 100 volume, no one can hear me in games or skype or anything, they only hear me slightly WHEN I YELL. I have the mic positioned very close to my mouth too, even closer than previous mics i've used.

Ah, I tried Equalizer APO for the mic, it has sound conflicts with Valve's Steam voice chat, everyone says my voice sounds robotic/demonic/distorted/crackled, also verified myself when i tested the mic in Steam Settings.

Ugh... 2.0.25 Beta driver fixed the mute lights on the cable to be steady blue when on and steady red when muted... 2.0.26 regressed back to obnoxious red/blue blinking when muted. :(

Aaand still no mic boost.

Seems like you would like an option to choose within the control panel, wonder if they would allow that.

Hello Corsair forums,
Okay I really need some help here. I don't know what's is going on but I've been stuck v2.0.19 for a while and I come back to check for latest driver releases etc.. It won't allow me to install this driver or any other for that matter. Because at the end of the setup wizard it says "Software has ended prematurely because of an error. Your system has not been modified..." I honestly don't know any way around this.

I can't even uninstall the Corsair software from my PC, programs and features...I mean it's not rocket science to remove something, I click uninstall and everything seems to go normal during the uninstall process but at the end it doesn't get removed... I've restarted my PC various times to do a fresh uninstall and that doesn't work either.

Any ideas please? I really wan't to get these headsets working properly.

Thanks~

*EDIT* Forgot to add, I have Vengeance 1500's

Check Event viewer and see if there is any entries that is related to the installer.

Have you tried reinstalling the v2.0.19 drivers?

The microphone won't mute with these drivers as far as playback is concerned. Like when I tap or speak into the mic I can hear the sound playback through the headphones no matter whether the mic is muted or not. Muting the mic does work for recording/voice chat purposes though. Trying to toggle the "Microphone Check" box in the Corsair CP causes it to hang intermittently and I have to force quit it. Also, when "Mic Check" is enabled, there is an audible buzzing/humming from the headset. It is a clean driver install. I'm using Vengeance 1500 V1.

Edit: I'm also getting intermittent static with these drivers too. Never had that before either. Back to the Windows default drivers.
