Static noise in headphones over music

Very loud static noise when headphones are connected to my audio output. It is so loud that it in fact almost mutes the music. I think that it might be the AC adapter or some wiring, almost like when earphones start to experience the same problem. Please help me, greatly appreciate it!

Audio static

That's pretty normal with built in connectors. For a workaround grab a cheap USB sound card from eBay or somewhere else. It worked for me.

Static on left side of output

Loose connection or fader/pot needing cleaning. Try selective tapping and wobbling until you locate it. You could try contact cleaner if it's a pot/fader otherwise it's out with the iron unless it's just a loose lead internally.

I have static in the right ear of my headphones. They started doing this when only two weeks old. I have changed batteries, tried adjusting the sliding fit mechanism and everything else I could think of....

the static that you have on the headphones is probably because a loss connection or no floating ground- it means that should be a cable inside that isolate all the noise its probably loss if you can open them you should be able to see the cable its better to take it to a technician

Static in speakers

I own this receiver, I assume you refer to the "hiss" rather than actual static.

I've found it seems to be related to temperature/humidity changes especially going from warmer to colder. And it is more pronounced from the analog audio outputs. Here is what I've done to remedy the problem quite effectively and the noise floor is now very very low, inaudible in fact.

Don't turn it off. You don't have to be powering anything with it, just leave it on. It doesn't have a standby mode but leaving it on will help keep it a constant temp. It doesn't produce much heat at all even when playing very loud.
The digital outputs are considerably quieter than the analog outs. I haven't completely remedied the problem with the analog outs.
Use ferrite clamps on the power cord and the analog audio outputs. Three on each helps.

You may notice that if you turn it off for a while, or your room gets cold or humid it gets more pronounced even when the above tips are employed. In this case I've discovered that simply playing it, let it "warm up" for example while movie previews are on at a moderate level, can make it go away.

Regardless of the audio source I connect my Bose QuietComfort 3 Headphones to, I can hear a small amount of static, especially at lower volumes. I have used another pair of headphones to test the devices...

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Yes Sir, as you have cross checked the audio so other possibilities have been ruled out, the only problem can be with your Head Phone unit, usually what happens is somewhere from inside the wire get cracked, or short resulting in noise or static, so the solution is to replace the wire, but the unit is a delicate thing so I'll never advice to D.I.Y.

I hope you have a clear picture now,
Regards, Waqar.

Make sure you are connecting to the OUTPUT section and not the input, look in the back of the television it should say output and have its own red and white pluga, if you connect the red and white cables to the input section on the front of the television or on the section on the back that says input you will not get any reception make sure you are connecting to the output

No sound, only static

Hi I had the same problem and just emailed Sennheiser.Go to the menu on your TV and change the variable audio output to fixed. I use the headphones through the home theatre so the volume must be max on the home theatre and then you can adjust your headphone volume. It absolutely worked and I don't get anywhere near the static noise when I go to another room with the headphones on that I got previously. Also be sure your audio cable is plugged into the fixed audio output socket. I did not have to do anything with that.
