Are the lights on the side on? If not try the little switch on the side of the in line remote, also they need to be plugged into the soundcard&USB.

My sound isn't coming out my speaker it does work with headphones. What do I do

Check all speaker connections. Yes even the plug ins. Wiggle each one with the sound to the speakers on. If you get a static noise that area could be the trouble.

Sound from headphones on computer terrible

b> WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. - rules Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards You will need to open up your computer to check the back of the input headphones plug look for dusty and bad soldering or loose connections. b> Computer Headphone Jack Has Fuzzy Noise b> When building a computer system, making headphone and microphone jacks are one area where computer manufacturers use the lowest-cost parts. When it comes to computer audio, no perceivable difference in sound quality exists between that of ordinary parts and higher quality ones. Very low-quality parts, or parts that are installed with sub-par wiring, however, can lead to fuzzy sounds and static on headphones.

Symptoms and Component Isolation Start the diagnosis by using different headphones in the jack. If the fuzzy noise or static problem persists over multiple headphones, even if it doesn't happen with all of them, it's probably within the jack on the computer. This is also probably the case if the static increases when you do other things on the computer, like dragging windows around on screen with your mouse, then stops when you stop dragging windows. Causes b> The leading cause of headphone jack static is electromagnetic interference from other components in the computer's case. When electrical devices draw current, they also generate a magnetic field. Overlapping magnetic fields cause static. To combat this effect, the manufacturer provides for the components on motherboards to be grounded - the wiring from the microphone jack will have an extra lead that goes directly to a grounding agent. When your computer headphone jack has a fuzzy sound, or static, the ultimate cause is usually bad grounding on the wiring that the jack plugs into. Rewiring The Jack b> If you're comfortable with a soldering iron, and know enough about electronics and wiring, you can remove the wire to your microphone jack and put in one with heavier shielding, or a better ground. If you're not comfortable with this, a computer repair shop may be willing to tackle this for you; the actual cost in labor is about an hour to an hour and a half of labor time. It may be less if the shop technician is familiar with this sort of repair, as opposed to only knowing how to swap cards on the motherboard. Using Different Ports for Audio Cheaper alternatives exist than rewiring the headphone jack on your motherboard. One of them is to put in a dedicated sound card - which will cost $15 or so, and you may have a compatible one from an old computer that can be scavenged. This will require researching the make and manufacturer of the card to download compatible drivers off the internet, and then installing them on your computer. If you have an unused USB port, the easiest solution is a pair of USB headphones. This has the advantage of working with future hardware as well.

How to reduce static in my audio

Im getting a wierd sound when i unplug my headphones what do i do

Open up your computer the speakers plug/outlet and the headphone plug is usually at the back of the computer
to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plugs make sure the connections are good
or you might have to clean the dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your sound card dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
be sure to wear an anti static earth strap before touching anything inside your computer
hope this helps

There is constant static in the left ear when the noise cancelling is turned on. The only way to solve this is to turn the noise cancelling feature off. Is there another solution?

these things are suppost to have a little static noise when on. next time get noise reduction headphones. they are like headphone style ear protection like what construction workers use. but only more stylish and they contain speakers. and no killing batteries for good sound. they are regular headphones but with really good sound isolation

I have a problem with earbuds or headphones, when I plug the earbuds in it only plays on my right side of earbuds.

Hey...that's the exaxt same thing that happened to me. On the same side too.

If you've had it for awhile the only thing I can suggest is replace it.

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.

Laptop noise interference

This appears to be a problem with the soundcard or device. The mic/headphone/speakers are all usually associated with the sound card. you may have had a virus attack or problems with the items drivers. Check the device has no problems:- My Computer/Control Panel/System/Device Manager ( Yellow Exclamation ) denotes Problem. Alternatively, is to disable the Mic Input Via the sound cards control Panel.

Thankyou for using Fixya.

The static is probably coming from the computer sound card itself. Turn the volume down on the computer mixer it should limit the static you are hearing.
