Compatibility with software is the problem. Some games just don't like the Xear Surround options.

I stumbled over a few games that won't work with the card if you use it's drivers on Windows 8 x64.
They will only work with Microsoft's own drivers.
Just to point out a few:

Defiance - Will not start
Need For Speed HP - No sound
F1 RaceStars - No sound after video, game crashes

Did you disable GX? GX is only for legacy games with eax.

Good point. It took me a while to figure that out.

don't. i replaced my creative card with an asus phoebus solo last week. i have all the problems you can read here. the sound is crystal clear BUT in games the presets are worthless because they all sound like you are in a big stone room. can't change them, can't make one myself. the driver of this thing is BAD.

i'm already thinking of giving my creative card a second lease of life.
