My headphones occasionally have periods where random popping sounds with varying volume are heard every 5 seconds or so. The unusual thing is this only seems to happen when I'm on call to my friend.
The audio setup is as follows:
Laptop which is calling friend has audio out go into a microphone jack on my pc. My pc then has an audio out to the amplifier which then goes into my headphones. If I turn the amplification to 0, the popping sound continues.
All software sound setup is handled by Voicemeeter, which simply takes the laptop input and channels it to the output, along with some other things which are not relevant. I'm thinking perhaps it is my power strip, since I have had times whereby if I push on the plugs connected to the power strip, I heard crackling/noise through my headphones, perhaps due to the inconsistency of electricity to my amplifier? Any help would be much appreciated as it is quite annoying when it happens.
