Imported audio sounds like it's through a tunnel or coming from a phone

I imported audio from audacity, and it sounds worse that it should. I thought maybe it was a problem with the audio, and asked around the Audacity forum, but we couldn't find a solution. I put the audio file through a audio-playing site, and it sounded normal. However with Premiere Pro it sounds different. What do I do?

NiNSFFB,

Sorry. There's been some problems some are having with .mp3 files as of late. I don't have the complete picture yet, though. Where did you get the original .mp3 file? 

 

Thanks,
Kevin

I recorded it in Audacity using my microphone.

Got it, thanks! Can you try exporting the same file in .wav format? What happens then?

Ok, so I just exported a test Premiere Pro project with the "bad" audio, and it sounds good. I guess my problem is fixed, but I would prefer if the audio sounded like it should all of the time.
