Question Headphones damaging soundcard???

Jun 13, 2020
This sounds stupid, but hear me out. I have gotten the exact same glitch/problem with my sound on my new PC as my last. It is entirely new, i did however run it from my old SSD for a few days before replacing it with a new one, with a fresh copy of windows, didn't copy over any files.

Every now and then the sound cuts out for a second or so, games, youtube everything. It seems to be related to the quality of the sound/how much processing power is needed to compute it?

The headphones were working fine up till today, then now the same problem. To clarify, i tried many sets of headphones on my last PC too.

I have no idea whats causing the frustrating, horrible sound glitch which makes everything a lot worse.
