    I seem to be get some weird interference when my headphones are plugged into my SR Macbook pro. I can't really explain it but its like a slight high pitch ring/buzz/hum. it goes in and out depending on the sound playing on the computer.

    I know for sure its the MBP because I have plugged it into other sources and I don't hear it.

    (FYI: I am using Sennheiser 595 with a Grado 1/4" to 1/8" adapater)

    If anyone else could test this out I would appreciate it. Wondering if this is significant enough for apple to replace.

    I am talking to a buddy on adium right now and whenever I get a message the wierd noises come in and then go away a second or two after a sound stop playing... :eek: :eek: :eek:

    This has been discussed. It does appear to be an issue with the SR Macbook Pro's. Use the search.

    headphone distortion/wierd noises on sr mbp.

    Hi y'all.

    Just got a brand new mbp. I plugged in my sennheiser cx 300 and, boom, that buzz hit me. Any app with sound (also safari when launching a sound/movie stream) seem to trigger the buzz. The buzz disappears shortly after those apps are all closed.

    Any news on this matter?
