Problem with audio not coming directly in bluetooth headphones

Ok so I recently switched to garuda from windows. At first everything was fine but now my headphone doesnt play the audio playing. The only temporary way to fix this is to go to audio volume in the taskbar and select Play all audio from this device. But this also reverts back when a pause the audio for a few seconds. I am using garuda dragonised gaming version. Sorry for my bad grammer.

What changed between it working and not working?

Whenever you experience a Bluetooth issue after an update, check to see if the kernel was updated. If so, be sure to test alternate kernels starting with the linux-lts kernel.

Maybe this is a brand new installation and still needs a garuda-update?

Ok so i saw that my system was not updated and i updated it using garuda-update and also installed the linux-lts kernel. But the situation is still the same and nothing has changed. Maybe my headphone isnt the default audio player and thats why the sound only comes when click on play all sound through this device.
