reduce static noise in headphones due to ungrounded socket


Apr 11, 2017
I am experiencing severe buzzing noises when using a microphone and I'm almost certain it's due to having an ungrounded socket. Whether it is the built-in microphone of the laptop (500$), in-ear headphones' microphone (30$) or the mic on my headset (50$). I have tried it out in different locations to pinpoint the issue and the grounded socket I tried reduced the static almost completely. I've come to believe that it is the ungrounded socket that causes the static noise. Now I am looking for solutions to this issue. Any help, advice, or suggestion is appreciated!
