Crackling and distorted sound when enabling surround on Kracken Pro 2015

  1. I own a Kracken Pro 2015 and have been using it successfully for the past 3 years.
    About 2-3 weeks ago the sound became distorted with crackling sounds (like when your computer is not fast enough to produce the sound).
    I tried uninstalling and re-installing the Razer drivers and software but there is no change.
    Of course since this is the 2015 version I have to use the older legacy surround driver and Synapse 2 software.

    When the surround sound is disabled the sound is fine - no distortions.

    My computer specs:
    Windows 10 Pro
    Intel I9-9900KF
    16 GB RAM
    ASUS z390-PRO motherboard.

    Is this a driver problem?
    Has anybody else encountered something similar?
