So I bought these headphones a couple of months ago and there has always been a static noise in them. It's not as easy to hear when I have a game going on in the backround or music, but you can SLIGHTLY still hear it. When no other sound is coming out, it is clear as day.

They are Skullcandy SLAYR headphones, bought them for around $80 bucks. I know that Skullcandy has a deal where you can send them back whenever you want if they break or something so I might just try that if I can't fix the problem beforehand.

I've tried plugging them into different USB ports on my computer and it still makes a static sound. I have also tried jiggling it around while it was plugged in but the static noise remained.

Could it be a conflict with sound drivers? I had old headphones from steelseries which I assume installed some driver on my computer and now I switched over towards the Skullcandy ones which installed a new driver on my computer as well when I initially plugged them in.

Any help would be appreciated!

Do they show up in Device Manager?  If so try deleting them then reboot, after the reboot plug the head set it it may load generic Win derivers.
