I am currently using a Sades SA-902 headset that is connected via USB. Whenever sound plays in programs like spotify or skype i also get an annoying crackling noise. I have tried it on my laptop and there is no crackling and i have also used all the usb ports on my pc and reinstalling sound drivers. I tested a pair of earphones that use the audio jack and they work just fine, so it is something to do with the usb.
When i load a game in fullscreen mode the crackling stops, even im still listening to spotify or skype.
Just wondering if anyone could help as this is a very weird problem and i havnt seen anything like it.
