I am using SP65012.exe "VERSION: 6.10.6498.0 REV: A" and it is working for me on Windows 10 64 bit. You can try it or SP65631.exe "VERSION: 6.10.6499.0 REV: J" but this is incompatible with my hardware "hp Envy M6". Please notice that 6.10.6503 and 6.10.6504 are also available from Microsoft but they did not work for me.
Uninstall your current Audio drivers. After installing one of the above and rebooting, you need to open Control Panel (Hardware and Sound --> Sound --> Playback, Click on the Speakers icon --> properties --> advanced ) and (Default Format) change the sampling rate in from 16 bit 48000 to 16/24 bit 44100 or any other rate, so the you don't have broken sound in Youtube.
Also, notice that changes to beats audio on/off or sound quality adjustments (like equalizer) will not be heard real time. Make the changes, stop and restart whatever you are listening to, so that you hear the sound quality adjustments you made.
Until IDT produces properly working drivers, good luck. If this works for you, please feedback so that others may benefit.
Please notice that Beats Audio will be working if one of the above packages work for you. If you still have a problem perform the following:
From the "Device Manager" -click on "Sound, Video and game controllers" right click on "IDT High Definition Audio CODEC" choose "Properties" click on the "Details" tab, under "Property" choose "Hardware Ids" from the drop down list and copy the first line in the Value field (it should look like this "HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_111D&DEV_76E0&SUBSYS_103C18A5&REV_1001") and post here in your reply.
After restarting my computer, I was able to get 2 of the IDT drivers and the High Definition Audio Device options to show up in the "Let me pickup a list of device drivers on my computer" box.
I tried the HDAD option, and it didn't work and the audio sounded odd. Should I try the other 2 IDT drivers? They're from 2011/2012.
edit: The newest driver available, from January 2012, still gets the static error. Trying the one from 2011.
edit 2: And the driver from June 2, 2011 still gets the static error as well. Now awaiting for Simple's response to my question above this post..

First let me start by saying to get rid of the Static Sound you mentioned in your first post change the sampling rate avoiding 48000. You need to stop and restart YouTube to hear the difference.
Second, HP Quick Launch does not work with Beats Audio (FN+B), so to operate Beats Audio Settings you need to click on the notification icons (the "^" near the power and network icons on the bottom right hand of the screen).
Now back to your current issue. You should not need to perform the installation manually.
1- From the control Panel un-install your current IDT software.
2- Download and install SP65012.exe by double clicking on it, if it says this is not suitable for your hardware, then try SP65631.exe, if it objects to both, then post the "Hardware Id" otherwise all is well and continue.
3- Reboot and perform sampling rate adjustment.
4- Click on the Beats Audio Settings Controls to adjust the sound quality to you liking.

Please confirm that in the "Device Manager" click on "Sound, Video and game controllers" right click on "IDT High Definition Audio CODEC" choose "Properties" and click on the "Driver" tab; you are getting 6.10.6498.0 or 6.10.6499.0.
If you are not getting 6498 or 6499, then the drivers included in the aforementioned links are not installed. The dates quoted by you (2012 and 2011) are too old, the date stamp should be around November/December 2013 and the release date 2014, check below:
