As the title suggests i keep hearing a very annoying hum coming from my headphones every once in a while. I've seen other people have this issue but ive never found a solution. Does anyone have any ideas as to what causes this?

Once you make sure the issue is happening on several devices, trying a new cable is a good idea if you can wire it up properly.

Can be the jack, can be something a bit loose in the cable, bad shielding. Test it with different devices, if it's the same with all of them, can be a loose cable/plug on the headphones or a shielding issue. Not a lot you can do to fix it unless you can rewire them with a new cable to see if that fixes it.

I have logitech g633's for this exact reason. Logitech lets you buy extra parts. Would it be worth buying a new cable?
