Try turning off speaker forwarding.
Xpra does have "silence detection", which should take care of starting
and stopping audio as needed, but maybe this isn't working properly on
your system, or some component may be missing.

Otherwise, it is possible for some applications to repaint the screen
even when there are no actual changes, also causing unnecessary network
traffic.
But normally this is also detected and ignored.

Cheers,
