I was just wondering if there's something wrong with my newest drivers, since not many people say that they hear what I describe. So I decided to record it for ye. I chose factory since it has the most echoing. Other maps ain't that bad. And on Warehouse the surround sound is so loud that spies actually have a chance(AND I've stopped hearing most stuff from across the map). Actually that's the reason for me to think that this is how the game is supposed to sound.
