Hello there guys,

I'm currently facing a tiny issue with the audio output coming out of my PC.

My current setup runs the following hardware:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P
Microphone: Blue Yeti (USB connection)
Headphones: Audio Technica ATH-M50x (Plugged via 3.5mm jack into the Blue Yeti, to hear sound coming directly out of the mic)
Speakers: Bose Companion 5 (USB connection)
Software: Voicemeeter Banana

Problem: If I increase the sound volume around 70%+ I can hear static noise, like noise interference, which translates to my voice recordings in Audacity. It's easy to be distinguished if no audio gets played back and gets annoying at times, especially when you can hear it directly via the microphone.

Can somebody suggest any solutions? Would connecting all this tech to a USB Hub act as a buffer and prevent the interference from reaching my mic/headphones and recordings? Is there an sound card, sound mixer or a DAC that allows USB connectivity for my Blue Yeti that would absorb the static noise? Budget: Around £200. Thanks.
