Windows 7: Windows detecting headset as generic USB, will not allow use of 5.1

Windows detecting headset as generic USB, will not allow use of 5.1

Hey all.
Recently I have upgraded to windows 7, and purchased a new Headset for gaming (Skullcandy Slyr to be exact). While the manufacturer states it's a 5.1 surround sound headset, windows only gives me the option to use it as basic stereo. Am I doing something wrong, or is it the fact that it's USB that it will not allow me to do so. I've hunted around and have not been able to locate anything helpful, so I hope someone on here can help me out cheers.
