I've searched a little on these forums and I've not found one post that's any use. Some unanswered, others suggesting things for PC. I don't have all day to search through posts that have nothing to do with what I'm looking for.
So... obviously I'm having the problem on PS4. It's not constant at all. Seemingly a lot like what PC users have experienced, the more that is happening, the higher the chance of the sound starting to crackle. Even with a ping around 50-70. It was REALLY bad in a game I played earlier today. Usually I can only hear the crackle when there's a loud explosion. The more explosions the more it crackles. It doesn't do it every time. Even under multiple explosions, it doesn't always do it. But now it's at a point where it randomly crackles during explosions and gunfire/etc. every single game, for the majority of the game, and it's extremely annoying. I've tried changing my PS4 audio settings to Linear. I've tried both Surround and Stereo in-game. I've yet to try unplugging my HDMI cord but this only happens with BF1, so I doubt that is the problem. I haven't uninstalled/reinstalled either. Is this seriously an unresolved/lingering bug from last year? Surely it's not affecting everyone?
