Why do I get an awful sound from Rovio?

It happens only to me or is it just normal?

I'm talking about the sound I get from rovio using internet explorer. It's awful and I barely can't make out the sound I get. However if I use chrome or mozilla or whatever explorer there is, the sound is good. So... why it happens only with IE?

Is it an isolated problem or maybe is my rovio who is malfunctioning?
