USB headphones not available as audio device for 10-15 seconds

I have a pair of USB headphones that I use as my normal headphones, and an issue I’ve noticed (Windows 10) is that the headphones make the normal click that signals they’re connected, but the audio device doesn’t switch or even show up until 10-15 seconds later. Until then, music or audio continues on the built-in speakers. Is this a known issue or is there a fix?

Edit to clarify, the audio device doesn’t show up immediately when the headphones are plugged in, but unplugging works as expected. Audio device immediately switches to built-in speakers.

Hi @Zachary_Berkowitz,

We recommend updating your BIOS and drivers through this link: Framework Laptop BIOS and Driver Releases (11th Gen Intel® Core™)

If this continues to be an issue for you, I would recommend submitting a ticket to our support team here: Framework | Support so they can ensure your laptop is performing as intended!

Thank you and have a great day!
