Lazarix Posted December 23, 2013 Share Posted December 23, 2013 I have a fix for the bass issue, confirmed as working on Windows 8.1 After a lot of perseverence, trial and error, I can fix the bass issue. But it's not without compromises. A fair few. Download the 1.1 driver (http://www.corsair.com/gaming-audio-series-hs1-usb-gaming-headset.html#tab8) Don't install it, as you won't be able to. Extract it with something like winrar. Show hidden files and folders in windows Go into: v1500driver_1-1_1 \USB112-110929-8.2150(W7-ER)WHQL\SoftwareDriver\Driver copy the path. Go into device manager and find your corsair headset. Update the driver. Manual selection Browse for driver Enter the above copied path Choose Corsair headset. Restart (Yes, you must). Automagically, the windows Bass options are now restored and you can choose all the things that you previously couldn't. Brings back the bass that was missing from the new drivers. http://imgur.com/g9OxM0Q Caveat: This does however cause the Corsair software to stop working. You'll find you can't launch it, and when it is in your systray, it won't maximise. This is normal. However, by pressing configure (as seen in the screenshot above), you can set the headset to 5.1 or 7.1 through windows. Basically, the way I see it, the corsair software stops the underlying windows features from working properly, and you can't even manually configure an profile with the frequency ranges as before so it sucks ***. At least there is a workaround as above. P.S. for all of you classics out there, this also removes the bloody annoying red/blue flashing mute crap they introduced. It is now back to the classic Red for mute. Yours, Ian. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
