Firstly hello to everyone and happy new year .
Secondly I know that there are thousand of threads like this but I wanted to make sure it's not something from me.
I just bought a new Hama urage xplode evo - USB Gaming headset. The sound is good , but when I test my mic I hear a humming/buzzing and sometimes clicking noise without me talking or any background noise. I have an Asus P5QD Turbo motherboard. I tested my headset on my brother's computer and hear the same buzzing as soon as I test the microphone.
P.S.: I have had a microphone with a 3.5 mm jack but people on skype were telling me they hear the same humming/buzzing sound.
Any help appreciated.
You probably have a ground loop.
Do you have cable internet?
Install the ground loop isolation transformer on the cable TV line.http://www.amazon.com/Viewsonics-VSIS-EU-Cable-Ground-Isolator/dp/B0017I3K9M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1357314486&sr=8-1&keywords=cable+ground+loop+isolator
Also separate the wiring inside the computer.
If the audio wires are tied to the data wires, or power supply wires, this can cause all kinds of noises.
