I agree. (Gaming)

The mix in general is just bad.

I’m surprised you didn’t notice. I thought the same thing, in that maybe it just didn’t sound great coming through my Vizio sound bar. Tonight I hooked my headphones, and I honestly think it sounds worse. The music is about three times as loud as it should be (which has always been a problem with Halo), the voices are all muffled, the gun sounds are all over the place in terms of volume, the Warthog sounds like a lawnmower from two blocks away.

Bungie’s my-way-or-the-highway attitude to audio has always bugged me, but whatever is happening here is awful and I hope it gets fixed. I wish they would just give us audio sliders for different elements like most modern games have.
