AirPods Max no sound, quiet crackling noises on Windows 11


When I use my AirPods Max with Zoom, I don't get any audio output except for very quiet crackling noises. When I go to Zoom settings (specifically the "Test Speaker" feature), everything looks as though there should be normal audio output, but I have no sound. I tried everything imaginable from switching settings around, setting my AirPods as the default device, updating my drivers etc, nothing works. The only thing that works is connecting my headphones with an AUX cable, however, I prefer using them without one. Audio works in all other applications except Zoom.
