There's no fix for the Halo Reach audio issues on PC.

343 Industries will provide a fix sometime in the future, but they haven't shared an estimated date as it will apparently "take some time" to deliver.

In a Halo Waypoint blog post, 343 Industries have provided an explanation as to why there are so many audio issues.

"To update Halo: Reach for Xbox One and PC required entirely changing the encoding for the game’s audio, which has resulted in it sounding different from the original release."

"We are aware that areas of the title don’t sound like what you or we ideally want them to."

As for a fix, 343 Industries have said that it "will take some time to work through solutions to improve the overall experience for audio, and that work is already underway".

According to several posts across social media platforms such as Reddit and forums on Steam, the most pressing issues with the audio appear to be crackling noises and popping.

But, to make matters worse, in addition to the "terrible audio," players have also been complaining about horrible motion blur and stuttering.
