Mk Ive Carapace helm audio issues

Issue Description:
The mk Ive carapace helm has some issues with its muffling properties, such as not all voice lines being properly muffled (grunts, certain callouts such as stairs, and sometimes rarely special kill confirms.) There is also mixed levels of audio on the helmet, many voicelines are far too quiet to the point of near inaudibility in the mix of chaotic fighting, while some can be heard perfectly fine, though sometimes they just all can be very hard to hear. This issue was ran into while wearing with the cadian cut-throat voice lines.
Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Wear Mk Ive carapace helm, the one with the half rebreather, and go into a match and pay attention to character voice lines. Unsure if having cadian personality is necessary. You will notice how hard it can be to hear your character compared to others even those with muffled lines themselves and the improperly muffled lines.
