Getting constant crashes with the Hangouts plugin for the latest Beta release on Samsung Chromebook. Is this related to the recent fix for the Dev channel?

I don't know if anyone else is having this issue, but my audio is way different after updating. I originally had Stable 26, after updating to Stable 27 and Beta 28, and playing around with the different channels, it's still not the same. Now, I tried Dev, and it has the same sound that Stable 26 had. This new audio has no bass to it, it's just awful in my opinion. I've tried next to everything, even to USB restoring to try and keep Stable 26, but it inevitably updates to Stable 27. I don't know what kind of changes were implemented, but I hate them. It's hard to explain, but it sounds like my music is coming from a tin can. I should mention this is with headphones!
