Headset pops before and after sound

My previous headset broke, but since it was a good one, I bought the same one again with the RMA money. On this headset, there's a weird issue where every time before, and after a sound plays, there is a pop. I have tried reinstalling the drivers (trough device manager, might not be the right way to do it), and changing USB ports.

Seems like some electrical problem; some static discharge before and after current starts flowing resulting in the pop.

If possible try the headsets on some other device.

If the problem continues it is the headset. If not it may be the computer. Perhaps the connection to the computer's headphone port is not tight.

Narrow the problem down to the headsets or computer. Try other headsets in the computer.
