RF interference. What a crock. Devices are supposed to be RF shielded, but often not well enough. Hope this works for you.

They also wake up and communicate to the nearest base station every now and then, transmit on full power.

My phone sometimes causes a funny noise like dut-dut-dut through the speakers/headphones whilst communicating.
Yep, mine does too

Well it appears that was not the problem. I moved the receiver farther away and also cleaned up all the cables and stuff plugged into the pc and it still does it. I noticed though that when running that latency program the spikes don't match up to when the noise happens. They seem to be pretty independent of each other.
