So i just got a new pair of earphones but i noticed that theres a very noticeable static noise coming from the earphones that i can hear when i have them in my ear, but not playing music, etc.
If i unplug the earphones but leave them in my ear, the noise dissapears. The same if i mute the volume control on my computer. The computer is only on volume 20.
Any idea what could be causing this? Or whether theres an official term for this static noise?
Forgot to mention : at high volume settings the static becomes much more noticeable. At 90 volume for example, i can hear it loud and clear.
