    Almost bought the sennheiser again, cause one good thing about it is it is very noiselss. never a crackled, clicked or popped, like my onboard does sometimes.

    Usually though, its just a matter of cleaning and reinstalling vid and audio drivers and enhancement programs.... Especially in windows 10. Its like windows 10 messes up the audio on purpose, that would be my first suggestion. It was a real downgrade in terms of audio support from windows 7.

    I have strictly no sound from the audio out with my Asus VG248QE monitor... and very very very low sound with external speakers.
    Do you have the same experience ?

    So, did anyone get an answer from sennheiser about the config reset bug? I got nothing... It appears that microsoft has updated their usb 2 driver and it does not play nice with the GSX.

    Jessus, no one can answer on this question ,, really ?

    I'm trying to ask everywhere , I mean someone must know about it.

    Is there a difference between using WASAPI and DirectSound with GSX 1000 with movies 7.1 and 5.1 ? does WASAPI still enable surround or convert it to STEREO ? because only DirectSound can transfer the virtual surround ? does a single person knows ? I tested WASAPI on DTS 7.1 test and all the speakers worked properly .. but I want the technical idea why it works.

    It'll make your experience better, it just won't make you better.

    CSGO already had a software HRFT mode thats similar to Gsx1000. It might be even better because it also simulate top and down position which gsx1000 can't do. For all other shooting games right now, yes that surround will help you hear enemies behind you.

    Sorry but this new audio added into Csgo sounds bloody awful. Way, way to much echo and it doesn't sound normal at all.

    The GSX is 10x better than HRFT in Csgo. That's my opinion anyway.
     
  10. happycamperjack
    I didn't say in game hrft sound better, but it simulate more directions(up and down) that give players a competitive edge as that's seem to be what the OP was asking for. So no GSX 1000 will not give you an competitive advantage for CSGO compared to the in game HRFT.

    I've found the issue !!! with Sound Reset

    Disable this ! and the issue will be fixed

    That's Quote

    "Its too buggy, sometimes it loads ok sometime it just hangs and onedrive loads longer then expected, even after logging in.. also this new feature can break audio startup service.. apparently my sb doesn't get set to correct audio format."
    "Same thing by logoff, sometimes taskmanager or explorer hangs."

    EVERYONE !

    Uninstall HEVC VIDEO EXTENSION from APP/REMOVE from Windows 1709 !! it screws the DPC Latency like tons if you have many video files around the computer ! it keeps loading the HEVCDLL file non stop takes SSD USAGE and CPU and SOUND and causing heavy DPC Latency

    It it something you installed yourself or what?
    From what I gather it's a ****ty windows store app thats enables smart apps to play h.265.
    Sound exactly like the kind of garbage Win10 sneakily installs.
     
  15. x7007
    something that came with Windows 1709 update I use Update/Upgrade , not fresh install . some computers I fresh installed I didn't see it installed. but they are just non gaming computers with no HVEC or HDR hardware acceleration support, so windows must find compatible devices to install it on.
