Sample rate question (sound related)

Level 9
I use headphones with my G75VW and found that the default setup for sound sucks when listening to Krewella (don't judge me 😛 ). I tried adjusting the settings as described in the stickied thread but it didn't help much. The problem was that the sound crackled quite a bit. After fiddling around with the settings a bit, however, I found that setting the sample rate to 192k helped tremendously. The music now sounds clear and is free of any sort of distortion through my headphones (Bose QC3). Why is this? Does setting it to sample at a higher rate require more system resources or anything?

Here's an example of one of their songs
