Microphone audio playback issue

Hey,
Mic is picking up some weird noises and sound level is spiking all the time in recording devices when mic is not being used and it only spikes when mic is plugged in, seems like something is being played back on mic when nothing is going on. It sounds something like cracking and other loud unexplainable noises that my mic picks up.
Tried messing with settings and default devices/disabling devices and such and no luck.
Sometimes they go away and everything is fine but then noises are back again.

Hi haxo512,

It seems like an issue with the mic. Is it a laptop or desktop you have. Do you a mic next to the webcam is using a audio port on the system.

Kindly update your system specs here by following this.

If possible please update the audio drivers for your system and let us know the results.

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.
