I recently had to reformat my drive. When I went to reinstall FH I realized my downloads were corrupt. So I went to download from File Planet like I did originally. Well after some time I realized a lot of the maps weren't working right. Crash to the desktop, messed up pixels in certain maps and missing sounds. So I decided to download from winboard. Well what a difference. First of all I never heard the Stuka siren or the Stg44 even from my first download well over a year ago at FP. Now I hear all that and sounds I never even knew were in the game. Jungle sounds in the jungle. Running water when I'm by a river. Tanks and Planes have way more distinct sounds. Who'd of thought...

Are you sure you've not just increased the max sounds with the new install compared to the old one?

That could be it; I downloaded from Fileplanet my first time and FH worked fine. The next time I did, after I had my drive wiped, I used a different link to avoid those non-existant-force-you-to-be-annoyed-and-subscribe waiting lines and it was all the same.

i never heard most of these sounds either until for some reason i upped my sound settings. if you have your sound settings on low, you won't hear all these little things. same with graphics, i noticed one time i could hear a burning campfire but i couldnt see a flame.

I'm quite sure I've always had my sound maxed. That still would explain all the messed up pixels and maps crashing either.
