Corsair 1500 mic problems


Recommended Posts

Hey! I recently purchased a corsair 1500 headset and have been confronted with a few problems these being the static noise and my microphone not working. I have been fiddling around with the corsair headset control panel and windows control panels, with this i have been able to reduce the static noise to a bearable amount but my microphone is not working, (i have tested it with skype and audacity)


I really dont know how to insert pictures, so here are some gyazo links:

First of all:

You need to set 0 and mute in your playback devices line and microphone (open sound control->press properties on your corsairs->playback->levels->and there you can mute them). After that in the same sound control panel open enhancements and check the speaker fill (open sound control->press properties on your corsairs->playback->enhancements->there check those options and apply. Here's your surround :)


You need to download Equalizer APO (http://sourceforge.net/projects/equalizerapo/) and instal it, in instalisation you need to choose your headset and then headsets microphone. After instalisation reboot your computer. Then go to your Equalizer APO folder and open config.txt file (C:\Program Files\EqualizerAPO\config\config.txt), delete there everything what is written and put this:

Device: Corsair Vengeance 1500 Headset Speakers

Preamp: -30db

Device: Corsair Vengeance 1500 Headset Microphone

Preamp: +25db

You can change the decibels. :)


I hope that will help you!
