Harsh clicking noise over bluetooth

Whenever I use my bluetooth earbuds connected to my Raspbery pi 3b+, I get a harsh clicking noise every so often (sometimes at regular intervals, sometimes not), they vary in loudness but can get so loud they cause physical pain. Any help would be so appreciated

You could try keep audio alive in Settings → Audio.

Already tried that, it doesn’t change anything. I’ve fiddled around with all the settings I could find, changing the audio output from best match to fixed worsens it if that can give you a clue
