Restarting Alan Wake 2 or the device (PC or Console) can fix it.
You can try reinstalling Alan Wake 2 on a faster SSD to fix the audio issues.
Make sure you have the latest patch installed i.e. PlayStation 5 (1.000.05) and PC (1.0.6).

Restart Your Device
This one seems like a simple one but it has fixed the audio issue for several players including me on PC, I was having trouble with the narratives but after a restart it worked for me.
Reinstall On SSD & Audio Settings
If restarting fails to fix the audio issue, then you will have to do some work more than just rebooting your device. Reinstall the Alan Wake 2 as SSD instead of HDD and then check it to see if it works for you.
You can also visit the audio settings, change it to “Stereo Uncompressed,” and then restart the game. This is another method that you can give a try.
Change The Audio Device
The audio bug cannot only be in a device but it can also be due to the devices you use for audio playing, such as your speakers or headphones, so don’t forget to check them as well. You can switch speakers to headphones to sort out the issue as sometimes having a defective or unsupported component can be a culprit as well.
Update To Latest Patch
Make sure your copy of Alan Wake 2 is updated with latest patch i.e. PlayStation 5 (1.000.05) and PC (1.0.6) as it’s meant to fix a lot of bugs at the launch.
My Experience With Alan Wake 2’s Audio Issues
This audio issue has got on the nerves of a lot of players, as considering how narrative driven Alan Wake 2 is having trouble with the audio glitches can really ruin the overall experience.
