This is how to fix Audio Cracklink in Cyberpunk 2077 :


  1. Make sure all sound cables are connected perfectly. Usually, aux cables have the tendency to crackle if not plugged in correctly.
  2. Lower your PC’s sound quality settings.
  3. Unplug all USB devices. It might sound unusual, but there is an electrical sound being emitted from your system, so lowering the number of USBs might help.
  4. If all else fails, it’s time for a PC restart.

Those are pretty much all of the things you can do to eradicate audio crackling not just for Cyberpunk 2077, but on PC in general.

With PC players happy, let’s cover how you can fix audio crackling on consoles:

Xbox One, Xbox Series S & X, PS4, and PS5

  • Change the game’s sound from surround to stereo sound. This might act only as a temporary fix, until developers fix the bug.
  • Some high-quality headphones might have virtual surround features in them. Make sure to disable these.

Unfortunately, the console fixes only serve as I said, temporary fixes. There seems to be an issue with Cyberpunk’s 2077 sound, but my guess that the developers are already working around the clock to fix the issue.

It’s unknown whether this is a game problem though, even though everyone likes to say so. Just to be on the safe side, make sure to contact CD Projekt Red’s support team for further assistance.
