Help! static noise with Turtle Beach EAR FORCE X12

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Today I received the Turtle Beach EAR FORCE X12. I noticed when using that there's noticeable static noise when there's no sound, which gets louder when the headset gamesound is put higher. So if you know what's causing this or a solution please tell me! Thank in advance.

for the X12, is there a USB audio device built in to it?

If the only way for you to get sound into it is by USB (as in, no 3.5mm jacks) then you're likely stuck with the static noise, unfortunately.

The usb jack is ONLY for powering the headset. It has 3.5mm jacks you have to plug in for sound/mic. Regarding the static noise you hear, turn down the volume knob on the inline volume controller and turn up the volume in windows. It should get rid of the noise.

My x11 and my x12s both suffer from static. The only thing you can do is put it on an amp or a dedicated soundcard and that will help.

Ah, the fact that I have a sound card could be why I don't hear static in my x12's tongue.gif

Find a way to relate or help or go away.
Yeah that guy's a joke. Just like his sig rig, lol! I'd be bitter with a Phenom + 5850 too.

I know bro, cuz I can't play games on a Phenom and the only way to do that is with an Intel 2600k.

League of Legends is hella' demanding.

my HPA2's do the same thing. you need the separate power adapter, should have came with it. plugs into the wall and provides good clean power to your headset. if it did not come with one than i suggest buying one, or get a cellphone charger that is usb with 5v like for the iphone3, it works as well.

If you are plugging into your front audio port, try plugging into the back, directly into your sound card/motherboard. I've had like 3 friends who were having this issue and this was the fix for all of them. The front panel is more susceptible to interference for whatever reason, happens to my own rig if I plug anything into it, a slight hissing/static noise. I never actually use the front so rolleyes.gif
