    So this never used to happen but over last few days i have noticed that it has appeared.It is a very low sounding kind of hum that is giving me a headache after playing for a while .

    They are turtle beach px22 plugged directly into my pc speaker port and usb

    when i turn the volume of the speakers all the way up it is much more noticeable .like a static sound .

    It never used to do this , What can i check or change to get rid of this ?

    Currently using 28bit 48000Hz

    It comes through my normal speakers as well when nothing is playing and i turn up the volume on them , I only did this to check if they were making same sound.

    EDIT - so this noise is only there when i put he usb part of the headset in ,It is not there when the USB part is not plugged in ,But it is kind of essential to have the USB plugged in as that is what powers the headset.
    Thanks

    Does moving your mouse around cause more sounds?

    If it does it could be possible that you are getting some interference, try moving the mouse to a different port, preferably in the front of you computer somewhere away from the headphone USB and see if that helps at all.

    Have you tried the front panel connection?

    It could also be caused by lack of shielding and insulation on the motherboards sound.

    Moving the mouse does not cause it to go worse , i cannot plug them into front as i do not have the right connections at the front.
    Will try moving my mouse to the front as see if that helps.
    Thanks

    I get this with PX21's. Try clicking on the windows sound icon and set the volume to 100. Then you will be able to turn the volume down on the headset itself and the 'hum' should be barely noticeable.

    This seems to be a problem with TB headsets as far as I can see. I don't think you will lose the hum completely.
