It may also be where your power adapter is plugged in for the speakers. Oddly enough, on several occasions I've found that rearranging or moving the speakers' power plug can get rid of the noise. It's worth a try maybe.

It's the jack on the back of the PC or sound card. Sounds like some solder is loose on the jack.

The cheapest solution would likely be to just replace the sound card, if your comfortable installing them. It's really quick and pretty hard to mess up.

If it's "onboard" sound, meaning the audio jacks are built right into the mother board, you'd likely need to just replace it with a pci based sound card.

Alot of static or interference through speakers


Check all leads are plugged in the right spots and are in good condition. Sometimes "static" is caused by plugs not connecting properly.

Static


Check the equalizer in Itunes to make sure you don't have it set to the highest values. This could be the reason why your speakers are playing the music with static.

Static noise coming out of speakers


What sort of computer do you have? Is it a laptop or desktop? Many laptops have this problem and it is quite widespread in laptops. The crackling or humming noise could be a result of interference from the mains power signal.

If it's a laptop, try running it on battery alone (take out the mains power cord). My laptop has this kind of noise in speakers when running on mains electrical supply, but it goes away like magic when I run it on battery.

A more long-term solution is to buy a 'Ground Loop Isolator' and insert it between your computer and the speakers/earphones. They are quite cheap and you could get it for under £10. It removes all static noise and you'll hear crystal clear sound.

My AS 500 Sound Bar speakers are crakeling (PArt # 4y463)


Usually, the crackling indicates a connection that's not making a good connection. you can try twisting the plug where it connects to your computer and see if you can get it to make a better connect. Also, you may try cleaning the plug itself. When cleaning contacts with any sort of household alcohol, be aware that it can leave a residue so you'll need to use a clean/dry tissue to dry the plug and remove any residue. -hope that helps.
