  1. #1 Quick Fix: Get Rid of Buzzing/Humming Noise When Using Your Headset or USB Mic 
    Hey guys. I just posted a short and easy tutorial on Instructables.com Check it out! http://www.instructables.com/id/Quic...-Noise-When-U/

    Update:
    If you have a two prong power cord for your laptop, flip it upside down so that the left prong is on the right and the right prong is on the left. This worked for me. Try it out and let me know if it works for you.

    Didn't work... btw the noise is mostly from the fan inside the laptop... atleast mine is. It makes no since that unplugging it would make a difference it didn't for me and I usually do my recordings unplugged.... so...

    This tutorial would work

    The only issue is noise is caused because of the ground, not because computers don't have it.

    I've had this problem with a headphone jack on the front of the computer (not much difference). When I brought it into the shop they said they could fix both that and the problem where USB drives keep crashing the computer when plugged in by putting a grounding strip in.

    The problem that I had was sort of an electric sound in my headphones, a buzz sort of. I'd assume it could be the same concept for an input jack seeing as it's the same jack connected so it will bring audio in instead of output.

    If the sound device is internal to your computer, than I would also recommend getting an external unit. It can be a professional audio interface, or just a consumer grade USB sound device, but it helps to keep the sound device as far from the other computer electronics as possible; all electrical activity generate trace amounts of radio frequency interference, and sound devices are generally sensitive enough to pick up on that... some more than others; the cheap electronics generally have a higher sound floor (where you can hear the electrical hum) than the more quality devices.
