It’s quite common that we encounter issues with sound devices. When we’re streaming songs by some of our favorite singers, we might hear a buzzing sound coming out of the speakers, which affects the enjoyment of the music. If you’re feeling the same, try following the tips in this guide and we’ll sort it out.

  1. Update your audio driver
  2. Fix frequency interference
  3. Change your audio settings

Before we start troubleshooting, please check that the audio jack is tightly plugged into the correct port. Also, try a new transformer and a new audio cable if available, as the faulty ones may cause unstable voltage and weird buzzing sounds. If the problem still exists, please continue with the tips below.

1. Update your audio driver

When the buzzing sound keeps annoying you, one of the first things you should do is to update your audio card driver, since an up-to-date audio driver always ensures the best audio quality and fewer bugs.

To update your audio card driver, here’s what you can do (please note that the following screenshots are taken on Windows 11, but the instructions work on Windows 10 as well):

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows key and X at the same time, select Device Manager.
  2. Double-click to expand the category Sound, video and game controllers. Then right-click your audio card driver and click Update driver (the name of the device can be different on your computer).
  3. Then click Search automatically for updated driver software.
  4. Wait for Windows to find the latest driver available for you.
  5. When the driver update is done, restart your computer for the change to take effect.
  6. Then check and see if the problem is fixed.

If Windows says that it’s already found the latest driver for you, so no newer drivers are found, then you should consider updating your audio driver in a different way with the help of Driver Techie.

2. Fix frequency interference

Buzzing sound occurs when unwanted radio frequency signals disrupt the use of your speakers. In a house, there can be multiple electronic devices such as WiFi signals, Bluetooth devices, cellphones, and appliances like refrigerators and microwaves. They can all produce persistent audio waves interfering with the frequency of our audio signals.

To fix this, you need to determine the source of the interference by turning off each of the possible devices or electrical appliances until the buzzing sound disappears. This works in most cases.

Still no luck? Kindly try the next workaround.

3. Change your audio settings

Sometimes turning on Audio Enhancements may cause buzzing sounds. So, it’s better to turn it off and see if your speakers work well.

To do so:

  1. In the Windows Search box, search for Sound and select Sound Settings from the results.
  2. Click More sound settings and you’ll be navigated to a new wizard.
  3. Right-click Speakers / Headphones and choose Properties.
  4. Click the Enhancements tab, and uncheck the box next to Disable all sound effects. Then click Apply and OK.
  5. Try playing some music to see if the problem is resolved.

Hopefully, this will be the final solution to the Speaker Buzzing Sound issue. Apart from these, you can contact the speaker manufacturer and seek more advice, especially when your speakers are physically damaged. And if you have any ideas to share, please leave a comment down below.
