I've had my laptop for under a year and only recently noticed that the my laptop speakers have this crackling sound, when I plug in a headphone into the audio jack I also get the same crackling sound. I've tried many fixes with sfc, Dism and unistalling and reinstalling the audio driver. When I troubleshoot it, it comes up with no errors, I'm going to call up the place i bought it from and see if they can do anything to fix it but wondering if there is anything else I haven't tried yet.
