Sound effects happening for explosions when PC doesn't hear them

So in my current game, with NotEye activated, I got the frightening message "You hear a distant wind." After a few steps I heard the sound effect for a fiery explosion happen, however no messages appeared to confirm my PC heard the explosion ("You hear a thundering explosion", or whatever the message is supposed to be). The vortex never entered my vision, it exploded off-screen somewhere. The explosion sound effect should probably only play when your character passes a "Listening" skill check, instead of playing regardless.

I've had this happen before, with off-screen exploding door traps (poor, stupid NPCs). Seems the game is accidentally revealing more information than intended.

I haven't tested this with a deaf character yet.

I don't think messages were ever generated for exploding vortices, just for exploding doors and fireball floor traps. Maybe I'm wrong?

If the PC is deaf, no sound effects are played (the music still plays though). Also we added a range check so that sounds that are generated too far away can't be heard.
