Try connecting a different audio device.
If available, connect another audio device using the same cables and connections to determine if the issue is related to the first device or its settings.

If your product connects to the device using an extension cable or adapter, disconnect the extension cable or adapter to determine if the issue is related to it.
Check the condition of the headphone cable.
If the plug or any part of the cable for your headphones is damaged, you can replace the cable.
Unplug and reconnect the audio cable in the connected device.
On the connected device, disconnect the cable that connects your headset. Then, reconnect it to be sure it is fully connected and secure.
