Vengeance® 2100 Dolby 7.1 Wireless Gaming Headset - 7.1 audio not working


Recommended Posts



I have a problem, the 7.1 audio on my headset is not working as intended.

When i play audio it only plays through the left and right channel (2.0).

But when i test the audio other channels with the windows 7's speaker setup, the channels do work.


In the manual it said to disable bypass mode in the software utility i got from the drivers. That does fix the problem.


Also the the playback devices it lists my headset as speakers instead, is that a problem, too?


I already tested it on another computer and when i played audio it did work there, albeit very loud. Tried both drivers available.


This is my first time asking help in a forum, so if you need anymore info i will provide it for you.


Thank you for your time.

The audio file is most likely a Stereo format, which is why it is playing it at 2.0.


You can enable "virtual" surround for it by enabling speaker fill.

Playback Devcies>Headset>Properties>Enhancements>Tick Speaker fill.


Is Surround working when you are playing a game, watching a movie, etc?
