Seriously need help, Sirus cm Storm 5.1 issues

Recommended Posts

Hello all

 

I really really need help, i have the sirus cm storm 5.1 usb headset and i have encountered quite a frustrating problem and would really like some help in getting it fixed. To start off with, all the components are fine, and work. the speakers work well, and the microphone works fine as well as all the mechanical parts that go along with it. my problem is that my mic and headphones love to alternate. Meaning that when my headphones are working correctly. then my microphone wont work. and vice versa... i game alot and use teamspeak alot so as you can imagine this is quite a problem. i have tried downloading both the latest drivers for the headset and for the motherboard sound. none have yet to fix the problem.

 

please please i really need help or this may result in me having to waste good money on another headset :(.

 

I run the latest Windows 8.1

Msi military class 3 i5

Nvidia gtx 660

8gig ram 

etc etc i dont think this will have to do with my pc specs...

 

anyway all help is greatly appreciated and i hope to hear from people soon :P

Is the headset connected to the front USB port or on the back I/O (Directly to the M/B).

USB 2 or USB 3 port? Make sure to use USB 2 ports if possible.

If you have installed any CM Storm software - please remove that first - reboot - and try it again.

Indeed, remove the drivers (unplug the Sirus) after that reboot, download the latest and reinstall.

 

Edit: have you tried connecting it with the Jack cables? Can you check this option please?

 

Cheers, Pim
