Well, its a lot better than it used to be. But there are still problems.

Its not as bad, but some effect sounds will stop when a turret goes off, for example. And I still can't turn off the comm chatter from NPCs on gates.

I'll jump in on this one and agree that the sound isn't very good in this game. I find most of the sounds annoying. The only sound I should find annoying is the low shields sound. The other sounds should be cool.

When my autocannons fire, I want the explosion to reverberate down through the inside of my ship.

But regardless, the sound isn't why I play eve... And I'm not all that worked up about it.

Only sound I like is the Tachyon beam Lasers with sound cranked way down. that and the warping tunnel sound . The rest are annoying as f**k

I would also love to see the sound-engine fixed.

Looping sounds on a non-focused client is annoying, but the single most annoying thing for me, is that exiting Sisi or Duality (or even logging out to change character) puts my soundcard into a seriously rapid stutter-error of some kind that won't go away unless I reboot my machine.

It's done it on two different cards for a while now :( - but never happens on TQ.

Going into Task Manager and cancelling the Eve process doesn't crash the sound though, so that's my workaround for now...

I also hate how the stargate sound gets stuck so you hear it wherever you go.

THIS. Incredibly annoying; have to disable/enable sound to get rid of it.

You do know there is no sound in space?

You know that EVE space is filled with a high viscosity fluid, right?

You should be, though. Everyone should be.

Sound is so important for a good game. It's the essential tool to use when you're trying to deliver the athmosphere and make certain events really stand out and become something special.

Don't believe me? Just play one hour of Homeworld 1/2 and you'll instantly hear what I mean. And as soon as you go back to play Eve you'll notice something very very important is missing. Cause most often it's not the shiny laser beams you see on screen that'll make you go "**** yeah eat that, b***h!" as you go blow up some stuff, it's the explosion sound effects.

Edit:
Might also take a look at the Eve Dominion trailer to see how the game is actually supposed to sound like.

Sound has been borked since Dominion, and there are many threads about this issue. All have resulted in little or no reply from CCP.

The sense of immersion that once existed in Eve via the audio is gone forever. It is apparently not considered a priority and therefore not worthy of any resources to fix it.

Learn to live with it, buy some cheap speakers to use while playing Eve, and put your good equipment to other uses.

Hmm... no. I'll rather whine and ***** and moan about it hoping that someone at CCP wakes up.

To me givign up is way harder than trying.

Eve's sound is fine.

I fly gallente hulls, and joined a corp that flies...other stuff.

I joined a fleet with a rail BS (because lulz), and was having to fly while laughing insanely while corpmates complained about the heart attacks they were given by the sound of my guns firing.

ALL weapon sounds should cause heart attacks. The truth is that most other sounds are horribly muted and wimpy compared to the awesome power of gallente hybrid technology.

WHOOOOOOOOOOSH.....


"Wtf was that? Somebody shooting missiles at me?" *looks around*

"Oh that's right, I finished a mission 5 minutes ago and the sound is still catching up!"
