Huawei Matebook X sound problems (distortions) at low volumes

I'm having problem with my Huawei Mateboox X. When playing music or Windows sounds at low volume I get distortions/cracks in the sound:

I've got confirmation that another Matebook X user also have this problem. This makes it very likely that it is not a specific problem with my notebook.

I’m very sure it is a driver issue. After a clean Windows install (directly from Microsoft homepage) without network and manually installing the Realtek driver directly from Realtek home page (saved on a USB stick) there is no sound problem.

After I enable the network and Windows update automatically starts installing drivers I get the problem back.

I hope that Huawei/Realtek/Dolby can fix this problem.
