Had the same problems on PC. Solved it by going into windows control panel -> audio -> configure playback device and set it to 7.1 surround even though I am using a headset. Then I activated Windows Sonic for Headsets and virtual 7.1 surround sound. After a restart of the game, my audio problems were solved

Marking these two as a temporary solution since it seems to be helping others searching for this issue on our forums.
The Apex Legends team is aware of audio issues and are looking to address them as soon as possible. This was mentioned in a recent update from Respawn. It was also touched up on back on 3/28 in this post.
Thank you all so much for your patience on this and we'll do our best to provide more updates around it as soon as possible.
ITS STILL A PROBLEM!
I shot one player and next i know someone is close to me and shoting me. its like the sound of enemy disapears!?
i have repaird and everything is up to date! GET YOUR SERVER FIXED!
am almost 99% sure Apex is forcing surround sound even if you don't have surround sound making sounds that is behind you impossible to hear ..i am 25 year professional sound engineer and know a thing or to about this subject
i have to agree with you i am a Professional sound engineer and i think the game is forcing surround sound even those you play on stereo hence making sound that is behind you not play for some objects like another player
these solutions will nto work on a audio interface because the window driver only has stereo ..the Game cant use ASIO ..the game play surround sound even if your donor have the hardware and config is set to 2 speakers i am 100% sure of it
