    Crackling noise in any headphones I use. Please help


    When i use my headphones the work just fine for a while but then a crackling, popping noise begins. It happens whether i am listening to audio or not and it has happened with 2 pairs of headphones and a set of speakers that plug into the headphone jack in front of my computer.i have no idea if this is something wrong with the jack or if it is the software. If you have any ideas please let me know. Thanks!

    Is that a Desktop computer ?, did you check in the back panel jacks.

    Than the answer is clear, either front jack is faulty or not connected right or wires leading to MB connector are not shielded enough.
