Front Panel headphones buzz

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
So if I connect my headphones to the front panel of my case, there's a really annoying buzz. The buzzing increases when the GPU is in heavy use and when I'm moving the mouse and using the mouse scroll.

I have an xonar dg coming and was wondering if I could use that exclusively for the headphones and my onboard for speakers. I use both speakers and headphones depending on what I'm doing and it's a pain to have to go behind the case to unplug the speakers to plug in headphones and vice versa. I'm open to more suggestions on how you guys tackle this issue. Thanks.

The Xonar DG has its own front panel audio connector, so you can connect the case FP connector to it.

It's probably possible to do what you want, but it would be a hassle every time you want to change from one to the other. A better option would be to look into shielding your FP audio wires and use the Xonar exclusively.

Yea I figured if I used the same FP connector it'll still be buzzing. I'll look into shielding my cables.

I've got a Xonar DG, and plugging into the front of my Storm Scout gives me no problems. Must be the case cables.

Yea it's the cable. I'm using an Antec p182 and a lot of people with Antec cases are having this problem. Was wondering what my alternatives were.

I have an Antec Nine Hundred Two and I used to get this problem using my X-Fi Titanium when using the front panel ports. I'm running caseless at the moment with the front panel section sitting on the floor and plugged into the card and the problem no longer occurs. Definitely a cable shielding issue

I wish companies would use better wire for the front panel connections. I have the same whine, though it's very very faint and only at high volumes, in my Thermaltake V3.

Is there anything that we could use to put some extra shielding over the wires?
