I HAD A PROBLE LIKE THIS AND JUST FIXED IT.

I think I had a similar issue. It doesn't ALWAYS do it does it? Mine was a crackle that seemed to react to treble.

I'm not sure if this is the same issue your having but it could have something to do with settings made by your manufacturer.

For example, when I went into control panel > Sound and into the playback tab, first I had to check if my speakers were set as default (make sure you do this as well) I also right clicked and hit "show disabled devices" just in case. This also yielded nothing.

So then I right clicked the speakers, (which was running on realtek, which is probably what you're using too.) And I clicked "properties."

In the window that pops up, look for a tab that has to do with your manufacturer. In my case I see "TOSHIBA Audio Enhancement"

I turned that off and viola the sound was clear again.

Look for certain "enhancements" or specific tweak options for your sound and see if you notice any change.

SOURCE: Sound on my dell latitude D610 is skipping making the sound choppy and warbled. But, music thru external speaker sounds fine. What up?

May be your headphone is not good, so let's check your headphone. If headphone is good, lets' install newest audio driver for your laptop to see whether the problem is fixed.

My jvc UX-D66 B micro system sound is very distorted and crackles when listening to music I checked the wires and they are fine it is the same through aux what could be the problem any advice please


You may have blown the speakers by playing too loud. Try listening with a pair of quality headphones. If the sound is clear through them - then the speakers are most likely the problem.

Sennheiser HD 205 crackle when listening to music


If the crackling occurs only when opening windows or another program, the crackling is not due to the headphones but to a lack of CPU resources in your computer settings.
If you are in Windows 7,
  1. click the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, and then click Control Panel. In the search box, type Performance Information and Tools, and then, in the list of results, click Performance Information and Tools.

Crackling sound


The crackling could be due to a faulty wire or jack connection. If you have any other sound device (e.g. headphones), try connecting that one instead of the Z4 and see whether the crackling disappears (in which case it's the Z4) or not (in which case it's the jack or the computer). Could arguably be an EM or electrical interference, but you'd need a laptop running on batteries to check the second, and trying orienting differently the speakers to try checking the first.

The music slowing down means something's wrong in the computer: the Z4 are purely passive, they can't do anything to the music tempo. Try running an antivirus check or try Task Manager (or Process Explorer) and see whether anything's eating more CPU than it should.

Distorted/crackling sound that interupts sound on laptop


Sounds like a blown speaker. If you wan to test the sound card try using external speakers. If you still get the crackling sound then it's your sound card. Hard to fix in a laptop.

Crackling Speakers


Hello,

That because maybe due to your itunes player which the installation got error..please try another player other than Itune or play it in windows media player or some other player which you think good player.

Or try reinstall your player or update it.

if this not resolve the issue, then verify the connection of your sound card maybe got grounded to other components making the sound crackle..Or you may try attached a grounding wire from your stuff directed to the ground or attached in any metal that is connected to the ground to eliminate noise.

please tell me what ever result for further analysis
