I've actually managed to soundwhore a number of people recently. I usually don't even play with game volume on and when I do it's pretty low because ill have music playing through my headset. And I don't mean just hearing players yell out "reloading" or whatever, I mean actually hearing them running or climbing near me.
For the record I haven't used awareness ever I think lol, and I only use dead silence in SnD. Maybe it's all in my head though, that's definitely possible.

Yea, I think quite a few things have been changed that they didn't mention. Maybe that's part of the 'other gameplay balancing' stuff they do in each patch. I don't have a headset and play with my volume on pretty low (new kitten gets scared with loud noises) yet I can clearly hear people in a room next to me.
Yes, I have taken advantage of this a couple of times today and I don't use awareness. Also, I'm pretty sure I've been heard running and died a couple of times as a result, after watching killcams. I actually checked the patch notes again and thought I must be going mad, but maybe they upped the footstep volume on the sly.
