Loud sounds sound like they're clipping

Posts: 228
First off, definitions: Audio clipping is a type of distortion that happens when a sound tries to be louder than a sound can possibly be. The result is something like trying to play a loud sound through a tiny speaker.

It seems to me like loud sounds (lots of gunfire, explosions, even cinematics) are clipping ever since the HotS upgrade. Does anyone else have this problem? This happens both on my stereo speakers and my headphones, and I have Stereo selected in the game's sound options. Changing the speaker volume or the game volumes doesn't help.
