Input devices detected, but not doing anything until a reboot

I have two input devices, a controller (a Razer Wolverine Ultimate), and another one that defies terminology (an Azeron Cyborg), and I seem to have an identical problem with the two.

The problem being, when I plug them in, they light up, and I can see them being registered in


but neither of them are sending any input data.

If I try doing

cat /dev/input/by-id/<device filename here>

and press some buttons on the device in question, nothing extra is shown on my terminal. Just to clarify: both devices have multiple relevant files in there, and I've tried this with all of them. My user is also part of the `input` group.

If I reboot with the devices connected, they work perfectly fine, though. That is, until I plug them out and back in again at some point. I also have a regular xbox one controller lying around, and that one doesn't have these issues.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: Just for good measure, some statistics about my machine:

Output of `uname -r`: 6.1.6-arch1-1
CPU: Intel i7-8700k
GPU: AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT
Desktop Environment: Openbox (had the same issues on Plasma, though)

Edit 2: Seems like the Razer Wolverine works just fine if I plug it directly into my computer, rather than into a USB hub. No such luck with the Azeron Cyborg, unfortunately, so some help would still be appreciated.
