Default Will we get New Drivers?

Hello I have the 1500 Headset while it is a superb Headset and mic no issue apart from odd Latency spikes think this down to the Windows 7 drivers on Windows 8

What I would like to know is the plans for more drivers and added features?

Thanks

It is something we're working on (for Windows 8 compatibility) but I don't have a time frame for you unfortunately.

Corsair is likely to update drivers extremely soon. They just showed off 1500/2000 headsets with driver updates at CES 2013.

If they are updating the drivers to add a new feature, it is likely that they will fix a couple of bugs in that driver update as well. It really isn't guaranteed, but it's an assumption of something that is very likely.

Am more looking forward to Windows 8 support and fix the Dobly 7.1 audio

Will the static noise, when the mic is activated, be fixed with the new drivers on the 1500?

That's highly unlikely, as that is a product manufacturing defect, and is unrelated to drivers.

To reduce the Mic echo you should just lower the mic level to about 80% this also depends on your Room setup, do you play close to fans etc

I see on LinusTech Youtube video 1500 next to 2000 but my question is the 1500 already has Dolby so will the new drivers just included fixes or new features also?

It isn't echo... It's the static sound that the headset does when you are using mic for ventrillo, teamspeak, etc.
