As the title says: Sometimes my headphones will randomly make an ear-shattering static sound while watching a Twitch stream at work. Its on an office Windows laptop and happens watching any stream on Twitch. I have confirmed it is not the person streaming's mic and it goes away when I refresh the page. It's enough to give me a heart attack honestly, I'm desperate for a solution. My work allows watching Twitch while we work btw if anyone thinks its them sabotaging me lol.

What model laptop is this, how old is it and if you know, what model sound chip does it contain? There were problems with the Realtek ALC4080 sound chips but I don't know if those are used in laptops.

I guess you'll have to live with it. No one even mentions what kind of chips are in that laptop, they just gloss over it, and I don't see any way of identifying it unless there's some website where they disassemble one and physically look at the sound chip.

Also having similar problem. I'll be playing a game while listening to a youtube video and my Headphones will burst into loud static randomly and won't stop until I unplug the AKG Lyra. I have a Sennheiser HD 280 pro plugged into an AKG Lyra which is connect by USB. I'm currently on Windows 10. It seems to only happen when my mini MIDI keyboard is plugged in as well. The only other thing I could think it would be is I might have had the Bass Boost enhancement turned on as well.

What motherboard manufacturer is this? Is that a Realtek ALC4080 audio chip? ASUS released a patch created by Realtek last May 2021 that solves a problem like that. You should check with your motherboard manufacturer to see if they have a similar patch.
