I bought a pair of Sunrise Xciteds a few months ago, and when I have them plugged into my computer via a 3.5mm extension, I am hearing popping, and it feels like static between my IEMs and my ears. I'm thinking that the problem might be buildup of static in the extension cable, which is then being discharged into my ears. I'm worried about wrecking my IEMs in this manner. Can anyone tell me what else the problem might be, confirm my suspicions, and/or provide a solution to the problem?
To clarify, my setup is: Onboard audio header > case front panel > dollar store extension cable > Sunrise Xcited
Not exactly a head-fi-worthy setup, but I'm 16 and don't have a job, so my $80 IEMs were a big purchase for me, and I don't know where else to turn for help. Thanks in advance!
