Headphones suddenly stopped working

Hi. I’m running what I’m pretty sure is the most recent version of teamspeak on Win10, and am using a pretty generic usb headset for the playback device.

The other day, I was doing some work from home and stepped away from my computer, and when I come back, I can hear this pitch coming from my headphones. I checked the volume mixer to see what application was creating the noise, but it wasn’t showing anything as a specific cause of it.

I ended up unplugging and plugging the headset back in, and now teamspeak will not play any noises through the headset. No other applications are having this problem, and I’m not sure what to do.

Teamspeak works fine with a different headset, but I’d prefer to use the USB headset.
