Audio reversed with 7.1 system audio settings

tested with 7.1 surround and MPOW eg3 headset (eg3 non bluetooth version). some audio effects from various objects in game appear to direct sound into opposite direction speaker for headset and 7.1 surround sound speakers. the system test shows the correct outputs and perform outputs correctly with other applications (tested with Planetside 2 and Screaming Bee voice service) but when in game, objects like thermal vents on Desolo along with the new 50th Anniversary Moon Lander audio stream come through the opposite earpiece. R & L are reversed. as this is a new headset for me which neither provides nor requires drivers i am unsure if its just my headset but audio seems to play correctly in Planetside 2 and while using Screaming Bee Voice. Im reporting this bug to see if anyone else has the same issue and can confirm with a less NEW headset and 7.1 surround system.

Update ... sense making the report i traveled to other side of the moon Desolo... and i removed my bugged Small Solar from my inventory. along the way i noted that the geysers/thermal vents would making sound in reversed ears... then just now the vents on other side seem to emitt sound in the correct ears. im not sure if its rellevant but either the:

1. Bugged Small Solar somehow alters the player perspective with sound independent of client input.

2. the auto is reversed depending on which side of the moon you are on.

3. periodically the auto resets or is switching output states randomly

4. the vents on on side of the moon have different ID with a different and correct audio trigger arrangement for R & L speaks.

not sure about any further possible reasons but these are the possible causes of the bug from my perspective just roaming around on Desolo.

Better Update ... sense making the report i traveled to other side of the moon Desolo... and i removed my bugged Small Solar from my inventory. along the way i noted that the geysers/thermal vents were making sound events in reverse to orientation ears... then just now the vents on other side of the moon seem to emit sound in the correct speaker outputs. im not sure if its relevant but sense making my original post either the:

1. Bugged Small Solar somehow alters the player perspective with sound independent of client input. (the bug described refers to the small solar's dish rotating extra degrees while tracking the star resulting in it eventually veering off its stem by some distance)

2. the auto is possibly reversed depending on which side of the moon you are on.

3. possible that the auto resets periodically or is switching output states randomly.

4. the geysers/thermal vents on one side of the moon may have different IDs with a different and correct audio triggers arranged for R & L speakers.

not sure about any further possible reasons but these are the possible causes of the bug from my perspective just roaming around on Desolo.

I reported this in 1.0.4 too, back in February. I just have stereo headphones. No official comment was made on my bug report.

You may find it with other objects on Desolo such as unpowered research platforms and the small research nodes that you can harvest.
