If the buzzing is louder or softer, directly relative to the volume level, it is signal interference.

99% of the time, when you get the buzzing or "air" sound, it's the cable. To give you an idea of how serious this is, each of my speakers has a Monster THX Ultra 1000 speaker wire running to it, which can cost roughly $100.00 each. This is for the sole purpose of eliminating that air noise or buzzing.

When running speaker cables or AV cables, you don't want them to run parallel to each other, unless they are several feet apart. If they have to cross paths, you want them to cross perfectly perpendicular to each other so as to minimize the amount of contact they may have.

Speaker wire should also be twisted copper (unless running fiber optic cable, which would be extremely rare). Many people try to use solid strand, but a lot of the signal is lost, even when well insulated.

If your speakers are close to anything electronic, try to move them away from the source, or move the source from the speakers.

If you have a GSM phone, the phone can cause distortion in your speakers as well, but with the newer phones, that only happens when it reverts to the older tower technology.

It could be the source of your sound input as well. If you have a bad connection at the source (assuming your computer?), or the source itself just isn't a very good quality, this can also cause that buzzing or air sound.

Hope this helps.

The speaker phone on our panasonic KX-T7633 dosn't go loud enough. We are trying to hook up an external speaker, but when we plug it into the headphone jack we just get a buzzing noise. Is there a...


There should be a way to do that. 1st make sure speaker jack is fully inserted. If you still have same problem try normal headphones and see if there still is foreign hum- then if headphones work, check the size of both the jacks to see if there the same- you might just have wrong size jack. If that is not the problem the Impedance(ohm symbol) is probably wrong and the phone doesn't have enough power to drive your speaker.. Use a speaker with same Impedance, you might have to use a speaker with its own power supply to get appropiate volume. You could try your PC external speaker. I hope this has been helpful.

Behringer ub802 mixer is buzzing even when no input when i hook my head phones into the headphone jack and main output jack


If it buzzes when you have no inputs AND no output leads connected, there is a problem with the power supply... HOWEVER if you have used UNBALANCED output cables instead of the REQUIRED TRS BALANCED output cables, it is possible the noise is being driven backwards and that is what you are hearing. Note that at full gains, there often is a tiny bit of noise, usually hiss. Also make sure the supply is powered from the SAME receptacle as the equipment this drives such as an amp or powered speakers.

Buzzing is usally AC line noise leaking into an un-shielded cable somewhere or a floating ground. If the AC plug is reversible, try that. Sometimes the buzz is from an attached device. Make sure all audio cables are plugged in tightly at each end and routed away from or at right angles to any power cords and away from other sources of strong magnetic fields like TV's. I've also seen variable track lights induce noise but it's usually minor.


Try rotating the power cord in the wall outlet.


If it still does it with no cables or anything external attached it

Hope you guys can help... I have a laptop Karaoke system. I connect from laptop to 6 channel mixer to speakers. I use a stereo phono to RCA from laptop to mixer. I am experiencing a buzz coming through...


Yep! Get a decent audio interface that attaches to the PC with a USB connection and uses BALANCED lines to your mixer. I use a UA-25EX Roland/cakewalk as an example. (about $200 and there are cheaper units such as M-Audio Fast Track MKII ) Note these interfaces BOTH record and playback with two channels for stereo.
Essentially the audio board that is in PC's and Laptops are too near the switching noise of the processor and some of that is just bound to get into the audio lines as they don't even have balanced audio lines from the computers. Make sure you use either TRS or XLR balanced cables from whatever interface you get. Also connect ALL interconnected equipment to the same power source or receptacle. You can try to reduce the buzz with the mixer EQ's with what you have, but that sacrifices audio quality.

Generates buzzing noise even when only cable is connected to it. No cable - no noise.


If you are saying that you are plugging a guitar cord into an input on an amp without the guitar on the other end and you are getting a hum or buzz with the volume turned up ; that is normal. If you are getting the same results with a guitar plugged in it means the ground wire to your output jack on your guitar is broken. Check your cord with a volt ohm meter for continuity on the tip on one end to the tip on the other end. Do this for the sleeve on one end to the other. If you were getting the buzz without a cable it would mean that your input jack in your amp has a broken ground connection. Hope this helps.

hello there,

First things First:

1) Check cables for dust, or bad connectivity. Clean aprop.
2) Clean carefully the volume control inside, with spray for computer use.(carefully inside the conectors)
3) Finally and sadly, have to change the speakers, may be is something damage inside the board of speakers, or fried. :o(
good Luck

Distortion/noise and buzz in front left speaker


Try to see if the reciever will make the buzzing/noise without anything connected to it except power, and speakers. Tune into a local radio station and see if the noise continues. If the noise has stopped, then you know there is an issue with the player or cable.
