I have asked a few places, and I haven't been able to get a good fix. I thank you in advance if you're able to help.

After the initial setup, I used the headset for a few minutes before it would start disconnecting and reconnecting, along with these horrible crackling sounds that would appear with each connect. I'm using the USB-C to USB-A adapter, as my pc does not a USB-C port.

I have the Steelseries Engine app and I think changing the dynamic compression slider had started the problem, but I've turned it off and it's still having these problems. The connection is literally half a metre away from my PC, I've tried all the USB ports, and even on my iPad Pro.

On my iPad Pro, with a USB-C connection it seems to work, but on PC these problems return. I've added a few videos with the link to demonstrate with and without music playing.

A few clips of the problem.

I've also tested this on my Chromebook both with and without the adapter, and it works fine. I don't want to refund due to this, as it seems to be an issue with maybe drivers or software, and I've ordered a replacement adapter just in case.

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

We're going to need a little more information. When posting a thread of troubleshooting nature, it's customary to include your full system's specs. Please list them like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:
Monitor:

As for your motherboard, please check and see what your BIOS version is at the time of writing. If you're on Windows 10, what OS version(not edition) are you working with? Have you tried reinstalling your chipset/USB drivers in an elevated command, i.e, Right click installer>Run as Administrator?
