Audio Crackling and Popping on HP OMEN 15-dh1065cl

HP Recommended
HP Omen Laptop 15-dh1065cl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have only had the laptop for less than 90 days and am noticing a popping, crackling, and intermittent sound distortions all the time when listening to videos, music or gaming! I have tried uninstalling my current Realtek drivers and installing older versions of Realtek drivers with no luck sofar ( Apparently there are no Bang & Olufsen drivers? I hope someone has a solution because I like this laptop, but cannot keep it if this doesn't get fixed. It's THAT noticeable.
