Soundstream devicelist for CONNECTED devices

according to the documentation the soundStream.getDeviceList() function should return a vector of active audio devices. On OSX this works as expected (i.e. when you disconnect e.g. an external soundcard it no longer shows on the list). However, on Windows 10 it seems to show any device that has been connected (or maybe for which a driver is present?).

What is the best way to check if a device is actually connected?
