Headphones are buzzing


New member
When I plug headphones into my computer they buzz, its very irritating. Anything I can do to stop the buzzing noise?


Hello and welcome to CF.

Is your computer a laptop or a desktop? Have you tried multiple headphones? Are they the jack type or USB?

Hey there @doogie

As @Philtrum said is this a desktop or a laptop? If it’s a laptop does having the power lead plugged in or not make any difference to the buzzing?
