CSGO Audio problem

Hi HLTV, So lately I've been noticing that my sound quality is very bad and it sometimes sounds very distorted. It affects my FPS alot when the sound fucks up(Happens everytime i see 2-3 enemies who are shooting, it sounds like distorted meme videos or some shit) The thing is i have an external soundcard i use for my headset and mic and drivers are installed for that soundcard correctly. All settings point to the soundcard as the primary, and all other sound devices are disabled. Does anyone know why I'm experiencing this? I'm also hearing small sound "clicks" right before windows sounds are played.

Airpods work better than any other pair with iPhones

One of the few iPhone users with a brain. A rare sight.

Possible it's the headset? How long have you had it and you should also test it by using it on ur phone and listening to music or idk
2019-05-16 09:28
I have used the headset and sound card on my laptop with no problems at all. I don’t think the headset or sound card is the problem
2019-05-16 09:30
Then I have no clue, have you tried lowering volume? Cuz sometimes the louder it is, the more it damages the headset
2019-05-16 09:35
Yeah it's weird, i'm playing with extremely low sound now because its unbearable
2019-05-16 09:41
Wait so the quality is good again with lower volume?
2019-05-16 09:41
No, it's still bad. It it distorts and stutters equally much with low and high volume
2019-05-16 09:51
Icic I have no clue then, but good luck

If you tried to reinstall the audio drivers mabye you should try to format the pc, I don't see another solution :/ .
2019-05-16 09:53
increase snd_mixahead variable to like 0.05 or throw away your trash USB sound card and buy a good one.
2019-05-16 09:57
I got Focusrite Scarlett Solo USB, i assume the sound card is fine, it works perfect for producing on my macbook.
2019-05-16 10:03
yeah im going to repeat my request for you to toss it in the garbage bin and buy some proper equipment.
2019-05-16 10:03
USB sound cards always cause driver issues on windows.
2019-05-16 10:04
Alright, I'll try alternatives then.
2019-05-16 10:17
you can try to disconnect the sound card temporarily and use on board audio. you might need to install realtek drivers if you never did that.
