    How bad is it? I had that problem on another one of my computers and it turned out it was the motherboard. I would search to see if anyone else is having that problem. Have you tried using a different set of ear phones? Does the static play through the ibooks built in speakers? I hate to say it, but it could be a logic board problem.

    Is it just as you are inserting the headphones or does it continue? If it continues, there might be a loose connection, which you might want to get looked at. But if its just during the time you insert the headphones, thats normal.
