    Headphones need permanent background noise


    Windows 10
    Version 10.0.18362 Build 18362

    Hello, I have a rather odd issue with a good set of headphones.
    When listening to a playlist of music on, say, YouTube, my headphones will cut-out the first second of sound. This is because the speakers on these headphones turn off when it is silent, but takes a second to turn on and gradually raise the volume of the sound playing.
    The solution for me has been to play a background sound very, very quietly, that the headphones will no longer have silence it will stutter on. However, it is very impractical to set-up each time.

    How can I automatically and permanently play a very quiet background sound on this Windows 10 PC, preferably only when these headphones are connected if that is also possible?

    You already asked this question weeks ago.

    Your bluetooth dongle has a newer driver (12.0.1.1010) on Microsoft Update Catalog.

    If that doesn't work then get a new bluetooth dongle.

    That's a negative. It is also a completely different BlueTooth dongle.
    This issue is something very minor, in that we are only losing the first second of sound per song. The other problem with the old dongle was something that kept crashing our computer and completely reduced the sound quality of these headphones.

    I'm not sure where the similarity exists here, the current issue has nothing to do with the old Bluetooth dongle that has since been replaced. Perhaps me noting that these are a good set of headphones caused this confusion, no?

    No, the confusion comes from the fact that you don't give information at all.

    This thread does not mention at all that the headphone is a wireless bluetooth headphone. Well's that a pretty piece of important information, don't you think? If I wasn't looking for your previous thread, I wouldn't have known that it is a bluetooth headphone.

    Your problem is about power management. Do you have bluetooth 4.2 dongle and a bluetooth 5.0 headphone? Have you updated your bluetooth drivers? Are you setting your computer with an aggressive power saving setting? Do you have the same 1 second sleeping issue when you pair your bluetooth headphone with your phone? Have you pair it with a friend's computer and see if you still have sleeping issues? Is it a noise-cancelling headphone and if it is, have turning off noise-cancelling solved your headphone sleeping problem?

    ...information...
    While preparing to clarify details regarding the headphones and the issue, I crossed some words and facts that narrow-down the problem. I wish I knew them when starting this thread.

    The headphones are the BT-06,

    which, as one can find out from a simple internet search, are INTONED. The second that it takes for the headphones to go from silence and rise in volume to play sound is known as intoning.

    The intoning feature is what I am trying to workaround here. We have no problems, and I clarify, no "stuttering" as I mentioned initially, that was a poor choice of words on my part, I apologize.

    Quite simply, I just need my Windows 10 PC to play a very quiet, almost silent, background noise to foil the intoning feature of the headphones.

    There is no such feature, it is just a brand name.

    Play a list of your own MP3 songs and see if you still have this problem. If it only has problems in YouTube, then it's a codec issue. YouTube uses opus codec and your headphone doesn't. Translating one codec to another codec causes slight delay.

    Any, I repeat, any sound.
    Such as:
    -Changing the volume level. I only hear the end-half of the sound. If I quickly spam different volumes on the volume slider, only the first repetition will be cut in half, the rest will sound normal because they started playing while sound was already playing.
    -Literally any sound I play.

    I just discovered something now fiddling with the volume, and I feel even more puzzled.
    I have a video off YouTube that works as a perfect example: YouTube
    If I change the YouTube sound slider, and only this slider, and play the sound, I only hear the second beep. The first is almost entirely cut out. If I replay the sound after, say, 10-15 seconds, I will hear both beeps. I did not know this before, but the headphones will only fade-in/intone after a volume slider has been adjusted. This is certainly the case with the YouTube Slider.

    When I change Windows 10's slider, the little sound it plays is cut. If I wait 10-15 seconds and change it again, the little sound is also cut at that different volume. If I then play the YouTube video after that, I will hear two beeps.

    If I go to Windows Start > Sound > Sound Control Panel > Properties (of these headphones) > Level, I have another slider, this one does not play a little sound. Now, I change it, and go back to play the video. The sound is cut. But if I wait 10-15 seconds, play the video again, and it is not cut. And I can't get any sound to be cut until I change a volume slider. Each time I play the video or any sound after changing a volume slider that doesn't play a little sound, like this one, will have the audio cut by a fade-in.

    If I have a longer sound playing and change any volume slider while playing, there is no fade-in effect. It only does it after any volume slider has been changed during a period of silence.

    But why would YouTube's volume slider would cause this too more than mystifies me. I'm only discovering all this now since I am testing, normally I change the volume with the Windows slider that cuts itself off. And I'm no expert regarding how volume sliders are programmed.

    There are volume knobs on your headphone itself, use that instead.

    I'm trying to create a batch file that will loop a very low Hertz sound whenever Windows 10 starts up.
    This should work well, the sound is very quiet but does the job of stopping the headphones from intoning.
    A bit of a learning curve for me.
