Corsair Vengeance 1500 Odd Cracking/Popping sound


Recommended Posts



My set of 1500s have this weird issue, where they will randomly start making cracking/popping noises. I'm using Windows 7 64 bit, and ive already tried most of the suggested methods i've seen for similar problems on this forum.


I've tried:


Setting to studio quality sound (99600hz, 24 bit)


Disabling HDMI audio output


Changing the usb port to every single possible port, including 3.0 ports.


My results have been fruitless. The audio quality setting actually makes it FAR FAR WORSE. Disabling HDMI audio did nothing, and changing the usb port is the interesting part.


First off, the usb 3.0 ports wont even recognize the device.


More interestingly though, is the fact that the problem fixes itself upon unplugging/re plugging the headset in. Does not matter which port, as soon as you unplug it and then re plug it, the popping goes away... For awhile. It invariably returns in a range of 5 to 25 minutes. It seems to be very random.


Has anyone had this problem? Obviously it is not a physical issue with the speakers, or re plugging it in would make no effect.. I'm using the latest 1.1 drivers.
