    I have the same problem, all macbooks have it when using external speakers especially the soundsticks.
    Its to do with the macbook shutting down the sound card and starting it back up, which produces the static noise.
    You can download software which keeps the sound card alive, it doesnt really bother me as I play music in the office then disconnect them when I'm on the go :D
