the mysterious 300HZ.wav is not a pure 300Hz tone;
it plays distorted (on ALSA and PA) because the signal is distorted

when you look at it in Audacity (Analyze -> Plot Spectrum) you see plenty 
of frequency components besides 300Hz; you can generate a pure 300Hz tone 
using Generate -> Tone and compare

I do not know why ALSA and PA sounds differently for you, it might be
