From what I understand, this seems to be related to surround sound. I can hear things louder in one ear than the other to show where it is. The problem is that when the sound's source is perfectly centre, the sounds becomes extremely quiet in both ears making it hard to hear. I feel like there might be some easy fix that I'm missing.
If it's any help; I'm using Steelseries Arctis 7 headset. 7.1 Surround seems to not affect it.
