    Could an external USB headphone jack converter resolve messy audio in new MBPs? I've begun to notice this annoying static that plays every time the system makes a noise...a tick comes before the music or the alert or whatever, then static underlies the primary sound, and when the intended music stops, the hiss continues for a time...it is really annoying. I'm no tech expert, but I thought that could be a solution.

    Has anyone tried this yet? Could anyone recommend a USB jack? None seem to be listed on store.apple.com...so I am a little hesitant of purchasing...

    I've seen many people mentioning the Griffin iMic http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/imic/

    As far as fixing the audio hiss (haven't yet heard it myself, but haven't spent a lot of time with headphones on yet), it would reduce noise from the other laptop components if they were the cause.
