then change the project rate at the bottom left.
Change it to what?
If I change it to a low number (for example, 4410) then it sounds very muffled, as expected.
If I change it to a number bigger than 22050 (for example, 44100) then it sounds exactly the same as when I first imported it (also as expected).

Are you certain? I retried it once more and I'm still getting the distracting compression.
Can you try again and listen closer?

You're right, it sounds untouched...
I don't know what I have to do to achieve that result though... I literally just reinstalled Audacity days ago and didn't mess with the settings, so that can't help....

Try this:
  1. Import one of the 22050 Hz WAV files into a new Audacity Project.
  2. Change the Project Rate (lower left corner of the main Audacity window) to 44100
  3. Click on the track to ensure it is selected
  4. "Tracks menu > Resample"
  5. Set the "new sample rate" to 44100, and click "OK"
  6. Play the track.
How does it sound?

My guess is that the problem was due to your sound card, or sound card drivers. At least you've got a good workaround :)
