I had a similar problem, and apparently others do to. I followed this guide and that fixed it for me. Maybe it will help you aswell.

EDIT: As requested, I will C&P the steps explained in the link below:

  • On the control panel > hardware and sound > sound menu
  • Select your speakers (realtek high definition audio for me) and choose > properties > then go to enhancements tab > and check the loudness equalization box, then re-launch skyrim, and check for differences on audio.
  • This helped me but then I went to the SRS tab on the sound menu checked to enable SRS technology (this is from realtek HD audio controller) and selected the game option then the game really sounded really good and noticed I can hear everythig just fine and not with max volume

Maybe you could add a bit of informations coming from that link. Pages moves or goes down, copying information make sure that it'll always be present – Jupotter Dec 17 '11 at 12:31
Loudness equalization is always one of my first tweaks to a Windows system. It's not just good for Skyrim, but if you watch video etc. on cheap speakers / headphones or when there is background noise. – agf Dec 17 '11 at 14:52
