So after about an hour trying to find a solution for this problem, I've had no luck.

The issue:

Audio playback in Google Chrome is way too fast/high pitched/choppy.

Steps I've taken to try and fix this:

Website used for the test between Firefox/Chrome: Google Music (music.google.com)

Tested other browsers (Firefox). Audio was fine.

Went to chrome://plugins. Disabled the Adobe Flash plugins one by one to test. I have the following plugins installed:

and the flash plugins:

Neither of those worked. Additionally, disabled the VLC plugin to test. That did not work.

Uninstalled/reinstalled alsa and pulseaudio. That did not work.

Changed sample rate in pulseaudio to 48000. That did not work.

I'm really at a loss for what the issue is. Like I said, the audio in firefox is fine.

Any suggestions?

Try deleting the google-chrome folder in .config in your home folder and then relaunch Chrome. This way you're starting fresh. If the issue still persists you'll know it's not with your Chrome configuration. If it stops you'll know it was a configuration issue. Deleting a disabling features in a random attempt to isolate the issue could lead you to bigger issues so starting with the lowest common denominator is best. –  C.Jacobs May 14 at 14:45
    
I got the same problem here... Waiting for help. I tried what C.Jacobs proposed but that didn't work for me. –  Meho Jul 14 at 19:52

Things to try:

  1. check flashplayer in chrome-plugins
  2. delete ~/.config/google-chrome
  3. reinstall alsa and pulseaudio

    sudo apt-get remove --purge alsa-base pulseaudio indicator-sound
    sudo apt-get install alsa-base pulseaudio indicator-sound
    sudo alsa force-reload 
    
  4. kill pulseaudio (worked for me!)

    killall pulseaudio; rm -r ~/.config/pulse/* ; rm -r ~/.pulse*
