Hello, I am having trouble with my audio when I plug in my headphones. 

 

If I click play on a video or enter a zoom call, the audio gradually fades in over the course of about 5 seconds. This only occurs when I am using my headphones (there is no problem with the built-in speakers), leading me to think this is a driver issue. 

 

I tried to roll back my RealTek driver to a previous version but the problem remains. It seems that if I do not use the audio for a certain amount of time, the driver is idle, then when I play audio again, it takes 5 seconds to "awaken". 

 

Any help would be appreciated.
