In the terminal, type

sudo nano /etc/pulse/daemon.conf

Find the section that looks like this:

; default-sample-format = s16le
; default-sample-rate = 44100

and change it to this:

default-sample-format = s24le
default-sample-rate = 48000

(or default-sample-rate = 96000 or default-sample-rate = 192000 depending on what your system can support.)

Then save the file and in the terminal type

pulseaudio -k


EDIT: I should add, after making the change, you can see what pulseaudio is using with pacmd list-sinks | grep “sample spec” It'll show one result for each audio device.
