Audio effects / equalizer not working

Hello,
I'm using default drivers found in my motherboard's driver page ( http://www.msi.com/product/mb/790GX-G65.html#/?div=Driv... ). I have installed last Realtek HD audio driver (w8-64bit). Back in Windows 7, audio effects, enchants worked perfectly and I were able to set equalizer in Realtek HD Audio Manager.. But now, in Windows 8, after I apply sound effects, there are no change, no effects are being applied to the audio after I click on Pop/Live/Club or any other preset (or make my own one).

I have high-bass headphones (Sony MDR-XB700) and I want to use equalizer to boost the bass output.

Any fix for this? Maybe alternative drivers?

Thanks.

Note: I'm not using release preview/beta, I'm using legal copy of a ready version of Windows 8, the one to be sold soon. This might be the actual problem, cause drivers were made for beta/release preview.

Hey, I did not found a solution, but I found a better equalizer (not actually an equalizer..) - SRS Audio Sandbox
It's an application which installs a driver in your computer which will make your sound play with SRS effects/tech, which will increase your music's quality and bass much more than equalizer.
Love it :)  No equalizer needed anymore. SRS Works perfect on W8.
