There is a cracking sound when I play music via headphones on my laptop. The built in speakers play back just fine. Also cracking noise when recording audio via Loom. What's going on? I think this started after I paired the laptop with a bluetooth speaker.

What happens when you enter the following in the terminal:

pulseaudio -k 
# or
killall pulseaudio
  • Nothing happened after entering either of those commands Commented Jan 27, 2021 at 22:19
