Considering that you found this article, you already own them, but they have started to bother you while bringing a crackling and a buzzing noise. Well, that is why I am here!

In this article, you will be able to find out how to repair or fix crackling and buzzing noises in your Logitech G9300! Now without losing your time any further, let me guys advise you on what you should do in these two cases!


Crackling Noise in Logitech G930

Why does it happen?

A crackling noise is the most disturbing sound that can come out of a headset, just like the Logitech G930. However, depending on the way they sound, there are some reasons that crackling noise might happen. A crackling noise on Logitech G930 may come because of bad connectivity, the impedance of the headset and the device that you are using it with, and the drivers that the headset works with.

How to fix it?

Thinking about the reasons that crackling noise happens, there are a few things that you may want to try and fix. They go as follows:

Connection

Logitech G930 is a headset that works wirelessly, and it owns a super-powerful USB adapter that includes 2.4 GHz lag-free connectivity. What you should do in order to adjust the connectivity is to check if there are any interferences that may block this connectivity. If there isn’t any, you should check out the port that your USB is plugged to.

Drivers

Another reason that crackling noise may come was the drivers that the headset works with. Considering that the drivers are always in movement and create vibrations of different kinds when you listen to a high volume of sound, they can be damaged. In order to fix it in the best way possible, I would advise you guys to always have control over the volume and lower it, so that the drivers won’t be pushed in any way or create any crackling noise.


Buzzing Noise in Logitech G930

Why does it happen?

Just like the crackling sound, the buzzing noise is also super annoying and will completely destroy your experience while playing a game with your Logitech G930 headset. The main reason that buzzing can happen from this headset is because of the connectivity, the ports, the headset’s speakers, and interestingly enough, there is the dirt. However, what I would like to add here is that you guys should check the sound settings on the device that you are using (more information below).

How to fix it?

Now that you have an idea about the reasons that cause buzzing noise in the Logitech G930, I would like to mention the ways how you can fix them.

Dirt

The best way to deal with the dirt on a device, is to clean it, right? Well, what you should do in order to deal with this, you should always check out the earpads because basically, they are what bring sound to our ears. By the way, cleaning will also make your Logitech G930 headset stay with you for a pretty long time.

Connection

I wouldn’t like to stop at the connectivity part too much because I already mentioned it above. But, what I would like to say here is to check the compatibility as well since if the headset isn’t completely compatible with the other device that you may be using, a buzzing sound will destroy your headset and your nerves as well.

Sound Settings

Now what may consider at this part is to go to the sound settings in the computer that you have your Logitech G930 connected with. You should go on the settings of that PC, tap the speaker icon which is specifically made for the speakers or the headsets/headphones that you may use, and after that, you can go to the enhancements and find out if there are any sound effects turned on. If there are, turn them off!


Things to Know

The reasons that I mentioned above, for crackling and buzzing noises in your Logitech G930, aren’t the only ones as there is a super important thing to be known! It is important to know that the Logitech G930 headset works with a CPU and being a gaming headset, different games require different CPU power supplies. The reason that the noises may come from your Logitech G930 is that there is the Logitech software that has some issues.

In order to fix it, you should go to the device that you are using with them to play your games, more exactly said, the computer that you have the headset connected to, and go to Task Manager. After you are there, you should find the process that is called “Windows Audio Device Graph Isolation“. The last thing to do is to end this process, and you will notice that the sound will be cut out for a moment, but after it, the buzzing and crackling sound will come to a finish.


Final Words

Here we came at the end of this article! I tried to mention for you guys some of the main reasons that cause crackling and buzzing noises, and the ways in which you can fix them easily. There are other reasons as well, but still, these are the most common ones, having the connectivity issues as the main ones.

I really hope that this article will help you fix those noises so that you can easily use your Logitech G930 headset without any other worries. Have fun!
