Pathfinder messing with sound device, making it unplayable

Platform: PC

Do you have any mods?: Nope

Please explain the issue is in as much detail as possible:
At regular intervals my sound device is disabled, followed by the game freezing for about 10-15sec. After about another 10 sec the sound device comes back on, the game freezes again for some seconds and then its back to normal. This whole process repeats regularly about two times in five minutes.

Windows event viewer throws:
Error setting traits on Provider {8444a4fb-d8d3-4f38-84f8-89960a1ef12f}. Error: 0xC0000001
each time this happens.

Game log throws:
-Shader unsupported…
-Different lightmaps…
-Mesh used in Particle System Shape Module is not valid, possibly due to missing read/write flag

I gather the issue is connected to the sound device, but it is only occurring while Pathfinder: Kingmaker is running, and it still occurs while the game is tabbed out.

Yes, the problem does indeed NOT occur if the sound device is disconnected…

My sound device is Steelseries Arctis Pro Wireless. Newest driver and firmware.
GPU: 2080 Super, newest driver, same problem on prev driver.
CPU: i9

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance:)
