EndeavourOS is using Pipewire per default up from Atlantis Release, but in case you do not want to use Pipewire, or you need to use Pulseaudio in case apps you need to use only work with PulseAudio, you can switch back to it:

sudo pacman -S pulseaudio

what will replace pipewire-pulse

In addition, you may need:

sudo pacman -S pulseaudio-alsa pulseaudio-jack pulseaudio-bluetooth

systemctl --user stop pipewire-pulse.service

systemctl --user start pulseaudio

For the other way around switching from Pulseaudio to Pipewire:
