So I first had issues when connecting a bluetooth controller and my bluetooth headphones together as the sound was very weird so I tried installing manjaro-pipewire to maybe solve the problem. Now, my sound is cutting regularly when watching youtoube videos and from anything that produces sound.
EDIT: I tried this guide [HowTo] Troubleshoot crackling in PipeWire and nothing seemed to work
Welcome to Manjaro forum @Dustoe
manjaro-pulse are intended to allow users to switch between audio servers easily, but
manjaro-pulse does not work as intended
Cant switch back from manjaro-pulse to manjaro-pipewire to manjaro-pulse
PulseAudio packages can be installed discretely without using the metapackage:
pamac remove manjaro-pipewire
pamac install pulseaudio
Do not select any additional packages when requested
This should install
pamac install pulseaudio-bluetooth
I tried this and it fails as now everything sound related loads endlessly online.
Anyway, I found something out. The cutting only happens with my bose quiet comfort 35 (which are I guess higher quality so there might be something there). What options could I try changing to fix this issue?
EDIT: It’s the same wether it’s bluetooth or wired.
EDIT 2: Just to be clear, my headphones work on my phone and worked on Windows 10
I tried everything listed here [HowTo] Troubleshoot crackling in PipeWire
It only does this with my Bose QC 35 wether it’s wired or bluetooth.
It kinda worked as far as I can remember with pluseaudio but I can’t seem to switch back and don’t really intend to as there was issue with bluetooth and sound while connecting more than one device.
I tried this and it fails
If any of the 3 commands suggested to reinstall PulseAudio packages failed please post any error messages
now everything sound related loads endlessly online
I suggest you delete PulseAudio user settings from home folder to clear any old settings
and reboot system to ensure PulseAudio creates new, clean user settings files
If audio GUI controls are still unable to load correctly, check systemd units for errors
systemctl -l --no-pager --user status pulseaudio.socket pulseaudio.service
Ok now I don’t know what fixed it but it might be that I switched back to the most recent kernel. I’ll try what you suggested if it stops work
