Multiple sound device

I was using my Garuda and then connected to my wireless earbuds but when I connected them to my PC it showed multiple audio devices connected, but I had only 2 my internal speaker and my earbuds, and when I tried to decrease the volume on my earbuds it automatically increases to 100.

It seems you are partially updated. Please run

garuda-update

to fix it. Also I have been facing similar issues where restarting pipewire is the only fix I have found until now.

systemctl restart --user pipewire-pulse.socket pipewire.socket wireplumber.service

you can map this to a keyboard shortcut like Super+r Until a fix from upstream arrives.

It can seem that way but something triggers it again, at least for me.
