Lenovo Y Gaming headset driver/software

2015-11-05, 15:09 PM

Hi guys,

 

I bought the new headset but I can't find the driver/software for it. I found a link (lenovo.com/gamingheadset) in the users manuel/quick guide, but it's not working. It's redirected to the main page 

 

Without that software acts just like a regular boring headset... There is no 7.1 surround sound no fine tuning, nada.

I know it's a new, but c'mon...

 

Btw, the mic's mute function works for USB 3.0 connector only. This wasn't mentioned anywhere, so think twice if you have only 2.0 ports!

 

There's anyone with the same issue? Any help greatly appriciated! Like a functional soft for win 10...

 

Thanks!

Hi, I just got the headset and ran into the same issue at first. If you are still looking for it, type in the entire URL, it actually needs the http and stuff to work, so typing just lenovo.com/gamingheadset bounced me to the lenovo homepage but http://lenovo.com/gamingheadset took me to the page for the driver. If that doesn't work this should be a link that works https://support.lenovo.com/en/documents/ht103097

Hi, thanks! I got it now and it's pretty OK for now. A bit too bass heavy sometimes, but in general this is the best headset I had in the last 3 years. And the first one I bough without any research.
Are you happy with it? Any issues?

Actually my set appeared to be faulty, the sound was good and I really like the headset, but I was having major problems with the mic. It was constantly giving an unbearable amount noise to anyone I was talking to.

It was a fairly constant high pitch sound, akin to a bunch of very angry bees. I had purchased at Best Buy and I went back and ended out swapping to a different headset just in case the mic defect wasn't just my unit.

Also, when I attempted to uninstall the driver, it froze my comp, and didnt uninstall, I tried it three times, kept freezing. Had to revert my comp to a time prior to installing the driver to be rid of it. Hopefully that is just some error with my system though.

I really like lenovo as a brand, and I usually don't have any problems with them, so I wouldn't be worried. Hopefully they keep working well for you!

By the way, the bass can be adjusted in the headset's program, i found that enabling the bass boost then turning down the power and decreasing the threshold it picks up seemed to help me. Overall I liked the customization possibilities in the app.

Hi, i'm sorry to hear that. I didn't tried the mic just yet (a couple of secods in skype is not a test), but I have to try it now in other programs as well.  Hopefully mine is still good as I really like that headset. I set the bass lower, so it's fine now. At least for metal and movies is excellent.

Thanks for the help and take care!

 So when I download the driver for Windows 10 (the OS I'm currently using) it extracts everything into the temp files, but before it opens the installer an error window pops up that says "Don't support this platform". How do I fix this?
