This just now started happening. Using my JVC HA-RX700 headphones with onboard Realtek HD Audio. Never had problems before.

The fluctuations in volume happen over a period of like 2 seconds, and it repeats as often as once every 4 seconds or so.

Just played some more music and the volume went down and hasn't gone back up yet. It's been like 10 seconds.

Any ideas on what is happening?

I had that problem. It would happens because of a setting in windows. I think I fixed it by doing this. Go to Control panel - Sound - communications. On "when windows detects communication activity:", set it to do nothing. That should stop the change in volume.

I don't know if it fixed the problem, as I did this and restarted Windows both before testing it again, but it seems to be working fine now. Thank you.

This kind of has me curious/worried, though. I wonder why it was doing this in the first place. I don't even have a mic or any communication things going on. I wonder if my PC is having issues I should be worried about.
