Static and crackling when I listen to Spotify on my desktop

Since the beginning of this week I've been hearing static and crackling when listening to Spotify. I've been using Spotify for ages and this has never happened before. It also does not happen to any other audio when using my browser (with apps like Youtube or other media players).

 

I've tried re-installing Spotify, toggling high quality streaming, toggling compatibility and toggling same volume for all songs. I've also tried closing all other programs, including my browser.

 

I checked my speakers' cables and settings, but nothing fixed the problem.

 

It seemed to have started since the newest Windows 10 update (Creators' update), but I'm not entirely sure about that.

 

Does anyone have a solution? It's starting to get quite annoying when listening to any of my music!
