It happens allot with Windows 10 users. I first encountered the problem with my Laptop. At random or after being on for very long or even after waking from sleep the laptop audio would become distorted.

The sound would not be clear and you might even think your speakers were broken. Whats happening is that for some reason this Windows 10 bug results in Audio becoming distorted.
