I have the same issue.Cant Hear things behind me in game, anyone talking in front or to the left or right of me is fine, but when I turn away from the thing or person in front of me the audio shuts off very quickly until I face back towards the audio again then its back. very disorentating.
Try the Sound settings, there's a preset for Headphones, small speakers etc.. Maybe something will help (I have no issues with both speakers/headphones).
Is v's voice also super quiet? I had this issue trying to play 7.1 audio. Nothing I tried fixed it until I removed my auxiliary cable and tried usb.
Figured it out cause my headphones worked fine.
I think this game fucked up the sound mixing a bit, so some sounds that are supposed to be on a specific sound channel don't go through correctly.Yeah, I tried the presets, but those don't resolve the issue.
I have it the other way round: When I connect headphones with an aux-cable the audio seems to be fine, but when I use my wireless headset the sound mixing is very odd, since sounds from behind you are blocked out or very very quiet at least.
It's good to know that you have similar issues, since I also couldn't find other people reporting this problem. I really hope they patch that soon, it's not really great to play this way, I guess I'll finish some other games first :/I think this game fucked up the sound mixing a bit, so some sounds that are supposed to be on a specific sound channel don't go through correctly.
It's weird because it's so hit or miss that it's hard to narrow down. On the first day I seemed to be the only one with the issue.

Thanks for the link, unfortunately it's not solving the problem, but I have submitted a ticket regarding this issue. But I gues CDPR has a few more pressing bugs to squish first, this audio mixing bug doesn't seem to affect as many other people...You can report it to CDPR support here:

There's also this website that discusses some solutions for CP2077 audio issues, but no idea if it works here too as it's not exactly the same: https://www.thegamer.com/cyberpunk-2077-crackling-audio-popping-hissing/
Hi, I've been having the same issues as described above. When audio is to my left, my right ear is practically deaf and vice-versa. Can't hear stuff behind me. when i turn my head while listening to someone, there is no transition. it just jumps from left to right. Been having these issues since release. I have a Logitech G933 headset and use 7.1 surround. I have read that that might also cause some issues? Not entirely sure though... Last hotfix (1.05) fixed nothing for me... Would like to at least hear from CDPR that this issue exists, but so far i can barely even find people who have the same issue...
So... did the last patch fix anything for us? I've updated and booted my game but no luck.. why can't the just fix this goddamn issue man.
