Hey guys, I need help. I am hearing random static noises in my headset when I am listing to music. I upgraded my sound card to a Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium thinking this would fix the problem but it didn't. I was using onboard sound and it was doing the same thing. I don't think i hear the static sound while I am playing video games but it's hard to tell when all you hear is gunfire etc. I tested the headset on a different computer and didn't hear any static. I am only hearing static, no hissing etc and only when I listen to music (I think, i can't be 100% sure). the static sound I am hearing is random, and only last for like a half second then goes away sometimes it happens hardly at all and sometimes alot. it is very annoying when it does happen. I am thinking it has to do with interference with the computer but I don't know. i started hearing the static sound after I did a few things (I don't remember what one exactly) I reformatted my computer, installed 2-3 missing screws on my motherboard and got 2 460 gtx's. it could of been either of those 3 or it could of just started around that same timeframe

so can anyone help me? I heard i could get a external dac to fix the interference but that is more money and I don't know if that will fix the issue or not. would installing those extra 2-3 screws of caused this ? I tried reseating my motherboard today but the problem is still there. a few things i tried seem to help but like i said it is random and it's hard to tell if it fixed the problem or not. i tried without the mic and listened to alot of sounds and didn't hear it once. I then tried with the mic and heard it 1-2 times. I tried not letting headset cable touch any wires as well. i also tried moving the usb cables to the top of the motherboard io plate. I will try again tomorrow without the mic and again with it on and see if the mic is the cause or not. I really don't want to not use a mic cause I rely on it alot while gaming. I guess i will have the replace the headset if it is the mic..

thank you for reading :)

    If the song is bad quality it could make a static sound. I remember I was listening to ac/dc - thunderstruck and I was also hearing that sound for a very small time. Then I found this site and downloaded one with the quality rated at 322 kbps and it sounded great. No more static sound and the instrumental sounded overall better. Then I went ahead and redownloaded all of my 151 songs in better quality
