Weird sound issue - spell sounds looping
Thank you for getting back to us. This is a known issue and is being looked into. As a temporary workaround you can disable the Death Knights Voices option. From reading in the forums it appears that adjusting the number of channels from low to high has fixed thsi for other players. Here is the forum topic that I am referring to:
Hopefully this provides you some relief from this issue as a permanent fiz is getting worked on. Please have a great and hopefully less repetitive day!
If you have additional questions or concerns, please reply to this ticket. If you would rather speak with a representative directly, please contact Account & Technical Services. Our contact information can be found at <http://us.battle.net/support/en/article/contact>.
The casting sound for frost bomb gets stuck and play on an endless loop.
The only way to stop it, is to either completely exit the game and reload, or change the game output option back and forth. However this is only a temporary fix since it occurs again, sometime instantly.

Actually, I have this same issue of persistent spell sounds. Nothing I do with the files fix this... though switching audio output sources temporarily fixes it. Not sure if this works for anyone else.
I have this issue too. The only temporary fix is to go into sounds settings and toggle the use hardware check box. The sound will still come back though
Toggling any of the following options should make the sound system restart stopping the sound.
* Death Knight Voices
* Use Hardware
* Reverb option (not sure of exact name)
Yes, going to sound, clicking on and off hardware mode does work but it's inconvenient while in combat.
It's still happening every day I have tried different settings, combo's, etc. nothing seems to work. I even dl'd warcraft back to my desktop...to see if that was the issue. It wasn't, still happens often every day.
If someone hears about a solution. Please post it. I am looking at this post often.

here are sound si ca recall off top of my head
turtle mount /mountspecial action sounds tend to get stuck in a loop, often with a strange delay.
mage talent (the arcane dot one forget name) tends to get stuck in looping sound after mob dies.
others I can't think of off top of head.. I've never tried to reproduce em, just happened to notice it always happening to same sound events.
The hissing issue will always comes on when I cast any spell on my Mage. (Fixing it is basically toggling your sounds - But it will come back when you cast your next several of spells).
But it rarely comes on my when I am playing other characters.
Maybe it is mainly a Mage's issue?
But anyway, I want to thank you "Blizzard" ahead of time for finding a solution for us.
It's amazingly frustrating. I realized how tranquil and serene a lot of Pandaria is when I leveled my Druid. Made me sad that I missed that the first time through. Please, please find a fix.
*edit: iPhone thinks "elemental" should be "electable" - this political season just won't leave me alone
