Hello there!

I have this problem too.

2010 Macbook Pro serial: W802010KGD6

The volume with accompanying "bloop" noise is very laggy. Definitely a bug.

A quick and easy work around. Use the silence 'bloop' volume modifier "shift", with the volume keys.

The volume will not lag, but you will loose the audio feedback for the volume.

Same!

I'm having problems with the volume button and the annoying unsynced sound as well. I wasn't having any problems until my OS was updated to Mavericks. Does any one know how to fix this? Will Apple address this problem/bug? :(

Same Problem

I'm having the same problem with the volume keys. There's a tremendous delay in response to those buttons, and I don't get the sound at all now. I'm running a less-than-year-old macbook pro with Mavericks. Hopefully there's a fix soon.

I don't have this problem normally, but if I'm using Boom (a third-party program that adjusts volume and equalizer settings) then I notice the lag. The lag seems to get progressively longer with time, as well. Quitting Boom stops the lag.

To those with this issue, if you're not using Boom, do you have any third-party audio modification programs running?

If you're using Boom that is the cause of it. I emailed the developer about a week ago, he said they're working on it.

In your sound preferences go on the Sound Effects tab and turn off 'Play user interface sound effects' and 'Play feedback when volume is changed'

It seems like this problem is nothing to do with the volume itself and just the playback sound

Yes! This worked for me! I like it better without the changing volume sound effects anyway.

Yesss. I first encountered this problem after the Mavericks update. It resolved itself after some time, but I still encounter it after I wake my computer from sleep mode in a new environment (wifi network). The shift + volume control is a great hack for those that just want to power through the rest of a project (or episode) without having to shutdown or troubleshoot for twenty minutes. It also gives you peace of mind that just the volume command is lagging - not all of finder.
