  1. Hello, I have owned my Corsair Virtuoso SE and have had a problem for quite sometime, but really narrowed it down the other day and was wondering if another person had similar issues, or would be able to test my same setup to see if they have similar results. Below are some of my settings. ICue Settings: EQ: Bass Boosted Surround: OFF Auto Audio Repositioning: OFF Dongle Firmware: v. 0.16.80 Firmware: v. 0.17.149 Software Version: 3.37.140 Windows Settings: Sample/Bit Depth: 2 Channel, 24 bit, 48000Hz (Studio Quality) Exclusive Mode: Allow applications to take control/Priority BOTH ENABLED) Spatial Sound: Off Issue: When using the "Bass Boosted" Profile within the ICue software, certain sounds such as very specific YouTube videos or actions within a video game cause Dramatic Sound reduction. The issue seems to arise the most when i am is listening to bass heavy content or Bassy vocal sounds, more specifically when someone is talking and using Plosives. This issue became most apparent when watching a Youtuber Named "ProtoxxGaming" and strangely when sometimes when he uses plosives my headset Extremely reduces audio to when i cannot hear anything for about 1 second, then it raises the audio backup to normal. Below is a video which this happens on, specifically at 9:47 on the "P" Plosive. Also attached is an Audacity recording using my Blue snowball microphone to record the sound from my headphones during the issue, you can hear the volume reduction. Example: [ame] [/ame] -SEE ATTACHED FOR AUDIO RECORDING- My Troubleshooting: I have tried adjusting all of the windows settings above, along within Icue. I have reinstalled the ICUE software multiple times with no avail. I have 2 gaming computers, so i tried Installing the software on my other PC and ran into the exact same issue. Connecting via USB or the Dongle shows the same results. Connecting via AUX cable works normally and sounds fine, but this bypasses the "Bass profile" in the Icue software so it doesn't sounds nearly as good. I also thought it might be YouTube/chrome issue, so i downloaded that video and played it in VLC and had the same audio issues. I did notice a few things though: -When playing the video and setting the volume to 100% in VLC or YouTube AND windows set to around 30, the effect is Major and almost reduces the volume to 0 for 0.5-1 second when it occurs. -When playing the video and setting the volume to 30% in VLC or YouTube AND windows set to around 100%, the effect is minimal and a lot less noticeable. -If you create another EQ PRESENT within Icue and raise the "32" and "64" to "+12dB", this same issue will occur without using the bass boosted profile. (Makes sense why the other profiles don't have this issue, they don't max out those EQ values.) HOW TO REPRODUCE: -Headphones connected on USB or Wireless, Do not use AUX cable. -Set the "Bass Boosted" EQ within ICue ->> https://ibb.co/87rkXtk -Have windows Volume set to around 30% ->> (https://ibb.co/2WrKbzx) -Click the youtube link above BUT before playing make sure the YouTube Video volume is at Maximum ->> (https://ibb.co/XbPqwkk) - At 9:47 in the video he says a "P" word and it reduces the volume greatly. Please let me know if I've done something wrong or possible troubleshooting tips, hopefully someone can try to reproduce my issue as well. Just wanted to figure out if this was a Corsair Software or hardware issue, or possible windows issue? Thanks! Cosair Virtuoso SE audio issue - Blue Snowball Recording.zip
  2. I have recently picked up a pair of virtuoso xt and I am quite disappointed that it is not able to switch between audio sources seemlessly on pc. On my old virtuoso non-se, I can simply switch the audio output between my speakers and headphones by toggling the (wireless to usb) button. This is such a big QOL feature and why is it not available on the xt? On the xt, I have to bring up the sound tab on windows and set the device as default. It feels like a massive downgrade to me that I have to switch the audio output manually on the xt. There are also posts on forum and reddit which report the same problem, but it remains unsolved.
  3. I have been using iCue to change the color of the logo on my headset and adjusting some of the profiles that I have made fairly recently. When I had changed from my old laptop to my new one, iCue started to cause my headset (Corsair Void RGB Elite Gaming Headset) to stop inputting and outputting audio entirely while I had it installed. I had found out, completely by accident, that when I have it uninstalled I am able to record audio and listen to audio.
  4. Good Evening, My new headset (HS70 Pro) has two issues I cannot resolve. 1 - There is a small amount of static I can hear in the background, even when the mic is muted/unplugged (sidetone is off).. I can almost deal with this 2 - If anyone knows what the main menu sounds are like in Call of Duty Modern Warfare are like, you will know it's a very satisfying click. However I, when moving my cursor over the options only hear the middle 50% of the sound - the first 25% and the latter 25% being cut/glitching out. This indicates to me that the transmission from the dongle is not permanent? This is a highly frustrating thing for me. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Apologies if I have posted in the wrong area; I am new to the forum. Thank you
