Resolution

Audio Listeners are the ears of your player and is a component found on each Camera featured in the scene. This means you have more than one component in your scene which is responsible for receiving sounds played within the scene.

Your Main Camera will have an Audio Listener activated by default however, your First Person Controller will include two children; Graphics and Camera. This Camera also contains its own Audio Listener. You will need to make sure only one Audio Listener component is active at a time. You can disable the Audio Listener by unchecking the tick box in the Inspector:
