So I have this really really weird issue. I have these really old speakers that are connected to my PC/audio port. So when nothing is playing I usually notice that weird muffled sounds are coming out of my speakers. Sometimes I hear them non stop but sometimes they quickly go away.

I know a lot of you might think I'm messing around or that I'm going crazy but I'm actually legit.

Here is the audio file that I've recorded with my phone. The hissing sound coming from my speakers is because I was moving the cable around so I could hear the voices as clear as I can.


Mods can check that the link above is a not a virus or anything like that I just want to get this thing solved.

It sounds to me like a SSB (Single Sideband) transmission like CB radio or a ham radio operator, or some service like Taxi if they still use analog transmission in your region.

This usually happens when there is a broken earth somewhere in the sound connections, and the way that it comes and goes with hum and buzzing also indicates an earthing problem.

Being old speakers, the earth shielding in the connecting cable is probably fractured and only intermittently making contact.

I agree with Platypus that you may be picking up a broadcast.
