Loud popping sound on headphones when playing all media

I’m experiencing annoying pop sound on my headphones, jack connected, when playing any sound. I use a laptop and it seem like they go in stand by after few seconds and when I or the system reproduce a sound they are reconnected generating this POP! sound.
I’ve experienced this problem previously and solved modifying some configuration files, but I can’t remember which one and how.

P.S. pop sound happen even if my laptop is connected to house power

My headphones also pop sometimes, mostly when I play with the jack. Try spinning the jack around in the plug, then leave it alone for a while and see if there’s a difference. My guess is static electricity.

definitely not an hardware problem, it work well on Windows (dual boot on the same computer)

This is probably caused by power saving. You can try:

echo 0 > /sys/module/snd_hda_intel/parameters/power_save

This setting will last until you reboot. You can make it permanent by adding this text to /etc/modprobe.d/audio_disable_powersave.conf:

options snd_hda_intel power_save=0

Hope it helps.


definitely what I need. Thanks a lot for safeguarding my nerves.
