My audio sounds bad even though my microphone sounds fine

So I have a HyperX Quadcast S, which I know isn’t the best of the best by any means. When I have my headphones plugged into it my audio is great. It sounds really really good. But when I record it on audacity it is muffled, metallic sounding. Its hard for me to describe exactly what it sounds like but its not what it is supposed to sound like. I have no effects on, and all the settings should be fine. Why does it sound so bad?

Possibly Windows has applied some “audio enhancements”, (they can be on by default)
[ Other audio enhancements are possible, e.g. MaxxAudio ].
