Windows update broke my audio driver?

HP Envy 13 AH0xxx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I had to roll back to the later version of Windows 10 (v1809) as when I upated to v1903, it creates some distorted and crackling noises as I tested the audio on Skype and iscord, it aslo messed up my Bang & Plufsen Experience as I am no longer able to use the equilzers. Has Realtek or HP released any update for the audio driver that is compatible with the new Wondows Update?
