My friend and I had exactly the same problem! We've tried almost anything, without success(also some of the fixes here!). The thing that worked for me was resetting the Win Audio Service, there were some bugs at the beginning when I installed W11 but this fixed it. While he just reinstalled the sound driver and fix it in a few steps.
We followed this guide here, maybe will help you as well.

Received and installed a new Dell PC with Windows 11 on Dec 31, 2021. It's been work great since then, although yesterday a sound issue suddenly appeared. While working in Presonus Studio One 4, audio playback of one of the mic'd instruments randomly cuts out. This occurs whether playback is through the Focusrite 8i6 interface or Windows 11 controlled speakers. I've screened dozens of messages on this board and others about the random cut out issue, which apparently has popped up many times over the last few years. I have tried numerous solutions such as increasing block size, increasing ability to control drop outs, etc etc. So far, no solution tweaking either Studio One controls of the interface or Windows 11 controls over audio. Can anyone suggest potential solutions? Thank you!

Audio on my new PC with Windows 11 worked perfectly from installation on 12/31/21 until two days ago, Jan. 14. That's when audio playback began to randomly cut out for a few seconds here and there.
My PC got a Cumulative Windows Update two days before on Jan. 12.
I'm willing to blame Microsoft for this one. Either or both of these Windows 11 updates are the likely culprits. Microsoft, are you listening?
2022-01 Cumulative Update for Windows 11 for x64-based Systems (KB5009566)
2022-01 Cumulative Update for .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.8 for Windows 11 for x64 (KB5008880)

Some additional information that may be helpful to Microsoft: since the 1/14/22 Windows 11 update, I've also experienced trouble with my Focusrite 8i6 audio interface. It was previously configured to 48khz / 24 bit depth for audio processing. Now, when Windows 11 boots, it only recognizes the Focusrite at 44khz / 16 bit depth. When I reset the Focusrite to 48/24, and then try to confirm that within either Studio One 4 or Windows audio controls, it reverts to the 44/16 default.
Bottom line: Windows 11 is very unstable for audio processing. I would not have ordered a new, powerful PC with Windows 11 had I known about this problem. Frankly, my studio work is dead in the water and I'm not amused.

ok so I've already announced that my computer's sound went haywire when I first received the win11 update, at first it was bearable because I could plug my jack in halfway and it would work. now my sound is completely dead, I plug my headphones/headsets in, and the audio is all static and then dies. I've tested the same accessories on my phone and other computers, and it works just fine, win11 is pretty terrible in my eyes, and I'm wondering if Microsoft will ever fix it because sound isn't the only problem my computer's having with this dumb update. if you ask me this is a downgrade, and I wish I never installed this shit, does anyone have answers? windows 11 murdered my pc.
