Sad Disapointed


I really like your products. You make a solid line of gaming hardware and is why I continue to dish out my hard earned cash towards purchasing such long lasting, durable, high quality hardware.

Your software development however, is a joke. You need to hire some people that keep up with such times. When I first bought the Vengeance 2000's the C-media driver that was offered (off of your website) was so crappy, it was better to use the default windows 7 driver which also supported virtual 7.1 surround at a superior sound quality. When the 2.0.7 Dolby digital drivers were released, I was so happy as this added such a great aspect to my gaming experience, ESPECIALLY Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4.

Now here's some news for you that you probably don't know. Windows 8.1 is the future for gaming rigs. Why? because future games (such as Battlefield 4) are optimized for Windows 8.1 due to the full support of DX 11.1 and 11.2 which Windows 7 does not fully support. And, Battlefield 4 has been PROVEN to run smoother on Windows 8.1 compared to Windows 7, even on old systems like mine.

I made the switch to Windows 8.1 for Battlefield 4 not knowing your Dolby driers do not work. Now, I am stuck with a default stereo mode driver by windows.

Corsair, you need to step up your game with software development. You have too much competition out there, and it would be a shame that you would become the laughing stock of drivers for gaming software - especially sound.

Please up your game. I'll be waiting patiently for your windows 8.1 Dolby driver.

So the drivers will be out soon? I just bought the headset and realized that 7.1 isn't working.

Default Re: Lack of 8.1 driver for Corsair headphones

I created an account just to contribute to this discussion as I am pretty shocked and disappointed with the lack of 8.1 driver for Corsair headphones.

The continued absence of a driver has forced me not to buy any more Corsair products. I am disappointed because majority of peripheral and software engineers have released drivers prior to the release of Windows 8.1; for example, Nvidia released drivers prior to the 8.1 update. I don't understand why Corsair product managers have not scheduled a driver in time with the release date.

I decided to sell my Corsair headphones (to someone who uses Win7) and then I bought a new Razor headphone set and they work perfectly in windows 8.1 :D Problem solved!
