After about 3-4 hours of play I notice the in game sound pops and drops until you relog in. NOT a computer problem, nor a headphone problem but it is the game and worse it occurs in battle.WTH??? Anyone else notice this?

Got sound problems myself.. My left speaker refuses to work in-game. It works on loading, and inside the garage, but not during the game. I thought it might be a bad speaker, but it does the same thing with my Razer headset so... Yeah, WG, put down the next T8 premium and fix what you broke...

Same.  Left audio drops, can only hear though right audio.  Happens when being hit by enemy, especially arty.  Resolves when restarting game, but keeps reoccurring.

Same,

Also have another player who said his left sound drops out sometimes when playing.  I tried to re adjust the sound to autoselect in the middle of a battle when the sound drops and I dropped out of the game altogether!

 

This has only been happening since the latest patch.  It happens even without any mods!

 

Please look into a solution WG, its very annoying!

I am having the same issue with the left audio channel dropping out and it seems to happen just after being hit the first time. I'll pay closer attention the next few games to provide better information.

Same issue here. Sound is fine until I am in battle then the left channel basically mutes and the right channel is about half as loud as it was.

Same thing for me... just played for the first time in a few days, and during a battle my left speaker on my headset cut out.  I thought it was the headset, but checked it and it works fine everywhere else.

Same issue happened to me.  Sound dropped out, and only had very slight game sounds.  Everything else sound wise works fine (apps, web, Spotify...etc).

Same here. Glad theres others. Thought my sound card was faulty. But figured it out it must have been the new update. Because it didn't happen before then.

My sound is fine, but music starts playing at times in garage and battle even with sliders off.

I'm having the same issue, like others have said the client needs a restart in order to fix it for the time being.

Have this exact problem.

 

I am using one of these 7.1 surround simulated headsets, if that turns out to be relevant.

I had the same problem today --  at first it was working normally, but during one battle I heard a pop and the sound on the left side of my headset was gone -- but only on the left side.  I tried it on other applications, and the sound was fine on both sides.  When I died and returned to the garage, I got another pop and the sound was restored, both sides again.  As soon as I started another battle, I got another pop and the sounds was gone on the left again.  The process repeated through at least 3 battles.  While in garage, I went to settings and tested the audio, it worked fine on both sides.  At first I thought it was my headset, or a bad USB connection/port, but since it only affects WOT, and consistently on when in garage and off when in battle, it has to be a bug.  I read a similar post on EU server from this week, and some of the players there said restarting the game client would fix it, at least for a while, so I tried that, and it's working correctly again for now...

I thought for sure my computer was just dying. Same problem occurs sometime when I either shoot someone, or get shot. Hard to debug for sure. But once it happens the client audio is hosed until I restart it.

Same here, sound will just vanish in my left ear after some time in battle.

Same with mine, left ear only... makes a pop sound... sound goes out in left side... and only in battle.   >:(   I also thought it was my headphones, which are simulated 5.1!

Yep. I restarted the client and it was back to normal.

Same same.  Pop and out goes the left channel, while the right channel goes to about 50% of what it was.  It's happened when I was running Aslains' and also running vanilla to make the second turret work in that silly PvE thingy.
