I have two Rokit 5 studio monitors plugged into my MacBook Pro via XLR to 3.5 cable. When laptop is being charged by normal charging cable, all is fine. However, when I plug my external monitor in to the laptop via a USB-C (laptop now being powered from usb-c cable from monitor), I get a ton of static in the speakers. Cant figure it out! please help...thank you

Unbalanced cables are much more likely to pickup local interference. So if you can used balanced, I'd always use them.
