There is the most awful noise playing on Deep Space Nine. The only ways to get away from it are to either turn your sound off, beam out, go to the exchange area, or go to the shipyard. This has been going on since your patch 2 days ago and the frequency of the sound has actually induced nausea and vertigo in me. I don't know if its affected anyone else in this way but I have been told other people have been hearing it. It should have been fixed the moment it was discovered as it is a potential health hazard for some people because it is a well known fact that certain frequencies of sound can induce my symptoms and even seizures in some people. Please fix this quickly! Thank you.
yes i have this same problem turning off game sound doesnt work either i have to take my headset off before beaming down. to help with any potential diagnostics i use a g930 logitech headset with 7.1 surround in surround mode it also produces the noise in stereo.
Having the same problem here on a Logitech G35 headset. The grinding/buzzing sound only plays on the promenade. It doesn't happen in Ops or in the areas off the promenade, like the bank/exchange or the shipyard. Adjusting all of the seperate volume sliders had no effect on the sound, and I have not heard it in any other area of the game.
EDIT: I can also confirm that the sound only seems to happen on my aforementioned USB headphones, and not when I'm playing on speakers run off my onboard sound card.
