Can the O2 kit sound filter be disabled?

I’m not referring to the audio cues accompanying entering and leaving pressurized areas - that part is fine. What does bother me is the muffled gunshots and footsteps. I honestly feel a bit claustrophobic with that going on. If it helps, I’m on PC, so if there’s a mod that does it, that would be fine too.

From a quick glance, no. Not without a lot of effort. They look to be baked into the audio .upk for each level.

That’s horrible. I tried to play it again today, and I just couldn’t deal with the audio filter. I guess I just won’t be able to play this one.
