Static noise when touching headphone plug?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello, i have a pair of Sennheiser PC350, which have started to show some weird symptoms, it started about two months ago, when i started hearing some kind of static noise in the right earpad, though i didn't think to much about it as it went away. But it recently came back, so i unplugged the headset and touched the mic and headphone plug from the cables with my hand/finger, and when i touch the headphone plug i could hear a static sound in the headphones. Anyone know what this means? Bad wiring or something? Is this something i can fix myself or should i take the headphones back to the store?

 

Thanks in advance.

I'm pretty sure that happens with all electronics from a headphone jack. It happened with my speakers, headphones, and mic but it's nothing to worry about if it isn't fully inserted into the jack. If the cans are in the jack and you hear static there may be a problem but if they are just touching the jack and not in I'm pretty sure that static you hear is normal. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Yea, i've heard that they produces static as well if they are not fully inserted into the jack. But this is about when they are fully inserted and am just surfing around and i suddenly hear some static noise, as well as i unplugged them fully and tried to touch the 3.5mm plugs with my hand/finger, that's the problem.

I have the same problem, every time I move my headphone plug around in my iPod touch I get a static noise which is quite annoying, i just need to be reassured that this is not a serious problem so that ill know that I do not need to buy new headphones or replace my headphone jack
