    Headphones popping sound when opening windows settings


    Hi, so when I open Windows Settings, click on Network Icon on the taskbar, click on the volume button on the taskbar, while music is playing, theres random popping sounds for like 2 seconds, and it slowly fades away, its not by chance, the popping occurs every single time I do the above, it also happens randomly even when doing nothing but playing music (on youtube). I would ignore it if I could, but it give me a headache the second I hear the popping.

    Im using HyperX Cloud Stinger with audio / mic adapter

    Notes:
    - Turning the speaker plug, and unplugging and plugging back in while music is playing, and even tried loosening the plug
    - Changing volume via windows volume, and volume control on the headset
    - Tried all audio Hz, popping happens at all audio frequencies:
    16bit - 41,000Hz thru 16 - bit 192,000Hz and 24 bit - 41,000Hz thru 24 - bit 192,000Hz
    - Happens on win10 1809 and 1903
    - Latest Realtek drivers, even tried without drivers installed, still happened
    - Only 1 headset is connected to the pc
    - Doesnt happen on win7
    - Theres no sudden CPU GPU spikes or lag in game during the popping
    - Other than the popping, the headset works very well and high quality

    Theres no other background processes messing with anything, since I only have 38 background processes in win10!

    - - - Updated - - -

    I just found out, my PCI - Wifi card is causing the problems, I disabled it and it doesnt pop anymore, but theres no sign of bad drivers or hardware conflicts, its a Qualcomm Atheros AR922X Wireless Network Adapter

    Hi, wireless drivers are often mentioned in the context of driver-related latency, which is probably the cause. Try running Latencymon (free) by Resplendence with and without your Wifi card enabled.

    You will find related threads on tenforums, and elsewhere.

    You might try using an older driver - e.g. one for Win 8.1.

    Its not latency its popping, before, the wifi card would cause my mouse to freeze for a couple seconds then go back to normal as if it got unplugged and plugged back in, that doesnt happen anymore, I dont know exactly why, but anyways, I feel its specific to the card and how its a PCI, is there any way I can fix it, like by configuring the COM ports ex: Headphones popping sound when opening windows settings-optiplex-3011-com-port-bios-settings.png

    and if so, what to do?
