My audio file sounds muffled upon export (No Clipping found in project)

Hi Everyone. I’ve searched this forum several times and I cannot figure out why I’m unable to export my file without it becoming muffled. It sounds perfect in Audacity with NO clipping from any of the files used. What am I doing wrong? I’ve tried:
Forcing stereo to Mono and exporting as mono
Analyzing for clipping
Wav file with a 32bit float

Nothing has worked. I really need help. Can anyone assist?

I just figured it out. I changed the sample rate from 16000 in the bottom-left corner of Audacity to 44100. Now, it’s playing perfectly! No further action needed!
