View Full Version : White noise when using headphones. Help!

07-31-2013, 10:51 PM
Whenever I plug my headphones into the audio jack, I will get this constant whitenoise whenever I am playing music, video or gaming.

When there is NO software running, there is no white noise. But when I run any sound or videos at all. (Even on youtube) There will be this constant muffled white noise in the background. Very annoying. It will only go away when I am not running anything after a few seconds.

What can I do to resolve this issue? It is very annoying and I cannot use my headphones because this white noise is very distracting! I am sure there is nothing wrong with my headphones as I have tried other headphones which resulted with the same white noise.

It would be great if you could specify how I could do the settings.

I went to Realtek HD audio manager, sound and wavesmaxxaudio. All of them were found in "Control Panel".. and there is nothing out of the ordinary that I could set to remove the white noise.

Note, the white noise ONLY comes in after I start playing music. (even if I pause the music, as long as the music player is running, white noise is there)

Getting maxx audio up and running helped reduce my white noise. Its still there but its greatly reduced probably thanks to being able to set the gain (small/medium/large) through it.

Read this to get maxx audio working with the latest drivers: http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?34135-Waves-MaxxAudio-gone&country=&status=

Good luck!
