I have the same problem on a brand new out of the box Pixel 4a 5g. Very annoying. I am not sure if it is a software or an hardware issue.

I have observed the same issue today. Sometimes it works after reboot but it's very annoying,  Not sure if there is any fix for this.

I have a brand new 4A, and I have the same issue. I even here the crackling when I speak to anybody on max volume. 😔
To make matters worse, I am in Turkey, so can't even get this replaced. Looking at online forums and Youtube, this seems to be affecting quite a few Pixel users
