Windows 7: White noise like a printer on headphones

White noise like a printer on headphones

Hey, It's been awhile since I posted here. I just bought a HyperX Cloud Gaming Headset about a week ago and it produces static and like printing sounds like when the printer is printing a paper, while idle when plugged into the front/rear panel audio jacks. My motherboard is a Z68AP-D3 rev1.0 LGA 1155 Gigabyte motherboard with a Realtek ALC889 onboard soundcard. I installed the recommended driver for audio in Gigabyte's website,I tried disabling every playback and recording devices that are not in use. I also tried reinstalling and reformatting my Windows to see if it's a driver problem. I tried maxing the volume and removing the microphone.

If audio works OK except with the new headset, then the new headset is the problem. That seems to be the case from your post.

Is my problem related with electromagnetic or power, It didn't do these noises when I had a SONY Headphone.

It really just sounds like a defective headset. Trying to look for other causes, I don't think is the answer.

Try the headset in a different (friend's) PC and see how it sounds.

I tried it with my brother's PC and my mobile phone, it didn't emit these noises

Did you hook up both the headset and microphone when you tested it in other devices?
I've seen isolated cases that the microphone caused noise. The Sony headphones (I'm assuming) did not have a microphone integrated with the Headset??

Correct, the sony headphones did not have a microphone. Yes I did hook up the microphone and headphone jack to another PC, I tried listening to the microphone and talking if it was the microphone. That was not the case, the audio coming from my brother's PC doesn't have the noises.

To see if its something to do with the front panel wiring, disconnect the audio front panel connector and then try the headset in the rear speaker (green) jack.

I disconnected the HD Audio wire and plugged the headset in the rear, the problem is still there. I tried plugging in the mic chord aswell but no results. Not sure if I mentioned this above but the static goes loud when I move my mouse from left to right while playing CS GO or any other game. Example if I move my mouse to the right it becomes quiet but still annoying and noticeable, then when I move it back to where it was it makes the static more loud.

I've heard of that problem with mouse movement but don't remember what the fix was. Its been a few years ago, on a Dell desktop. I'll try to remember what it was and post back.
