I have very much the same problem.

I have filed a bug regarding it.
The bug is https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=511178

Check /var/log/messages and see if you can find a warning or error
similar to:

"
...
pulseaudio[2182]: alsa-sink.c: Increasing minimal latency to 1.00ms
pulseaudio[2182]: alsa-sink.c: Increasing minimal
latency to 2.00 ms
pulseaudio[2182]: alsa-sink.c: Increasing minimal
latency to 4.00 ms
pulseaudio[2182]: alsa-sink.c: ALSA woke us up to
write new data to the device, but there was actually nothing to write!
pulseaudio[2182]: alsa-sink.c: Most likely this is
a bug in the ALSA driver 'snd_hda_intel'. Please report this issue to
the ALSA developers.
pulseaudio[2182]: alsa-sink.c: We were woken up with POLLOUT set --
however a subsequent snd_pcm_avail() returned 0 or another value <
min_avail.
...
"
If so, it matches my bug.  A bug search on Alsa, pulseaudio and alsa-lib
shows many recent similar problems.

I filed bug 511178 two days ago but have received no response yet.  If
it is appropriate (i.e. the same issue) I would appreciate your adding a
comment to the bug.
