A few common sounds in the game seem to be accompanied by intensely loud crackling. Specifically the Phoenix's laser (every time) and the Rogue's gun (on and off) keep causing this painful noise. There might be other sounds that cause it as well, but I haven't played much yet. I think this might be a problem with my hardware (or a driver), because I was in the beta and the bug wasn't happening, and I have since then gotten a new headset; but I have no way of knowing for sure because my old headset doesn't work any more. Also worth noting: when I first launched the game I played several hours without any problem, even though every subsequent launch has had this bug. I also had that bug that doesn't allow you to adjust the volume of the game on the first launch (both music and effects settings stuck on "0"). Might be they're related?
