Ok guys, this is really annoying me, i keep hearing these pop type sounds in black ops, im not sure if its to do with my headset/setup (sharkoons), or if its to do with the game.

Im not sure what triggers the sound, it seems to be random, i would probably hear the sound, every 1 in 8 games or so. but its BLOODY annoying.

its happened to me through optical and normal red and white cables, i know it may not sound loud but anyone whos uses a gaming headset like me, it sounds a milion times worse and annoying.

Ive also noticed if i replay the clip over and over on theatre mode it wont happen each time, it will happen about 2 in 10 times i watch the clip. If anyones ever heard it, plese post. you can also add my psn account where ive uploaded another clip in theatre mode for yourselves to test if you hear the sound.


heres an example clip, listen closely around 11-12 seconds.

I was tempted to say it might be a sniper rifle, they sound awful in this game, but I think its bullets hitting the walls around you.

Have you changed the sound options to headset ? I noticed when I set up
My sub account you can have tv, surround sound system or headphones, I haven't used thrbsetting with my px 21's so it's just a suggestion

i dont think so, it doesnt happen everytime i replay the clip, its either my settings or a bug in the game

no,i have mine set on headphones and quiet.there is not much difference between the quiet and loud settings really.loud is a bit more echo sounding.but i do prefer the headphone setting to surround.its more of an in ear sound if that makes any sense.
