Whenever I listen to anything with my usb to headphone jack adapter(audio technica ATR2USB) there is a crackling sound. I tried disabling all microphones, cleaning it, re installing the drivers, using different headphones but it is still there please help my thanks.

That's probably electrical noise or interference. I use earphones on the audio jack on my PC, and whenever someone turns something on or off in the house, I can hear crackling.

The crackling is constant so I don't think it is this either

I've tried several different headphones, also tried using all four of my usb ports and my laptops sound card is broken so that won't work.

I am using a usb sound card that is having the static sound not my laptop card.

Ok, in case you didn't know, your ATR2USB is not a sound card.

If you are hearing crackling when only using that adapter, then its probably just the quality of the adapter.

I didn't know it wasn't a sound card but I don't think it's the quality as the first 2 days I used it I didn't have any problems with it.

Do you know how to permanently uninstall the drivers because they reinstall on their own
