It is clearly the headphone jack itself. I think I may have found the fix for many of these issues, and it is super simple and only takes seconds! If you hear crackling with another headset, the cause may be a dirty, cracked or worn jack, or a problem with your computer's sound card. I never have cut out. Check the sound card to ensure that it's seated properly. I will try this out, I think it should work. Right-click on speakers bottom right corner of the screen and select Playback Devices.
I had the same problem and it was bugging me to no end. I really don't understand it. So I never actually used the headset until yesterday goes to show I probably did not need them. Recently I began getting a lot of crackling from the headset. I thought it was my cable going. Your first mistake unfortunately was buying a Sony headset.
And even then, there are little sound ripples constantly and popping and distortion of some sounds. Yet even a top-of-the-line headset may produce crackling or static noises, distracting you or even forcing you to end a call until you can sort it out or borrow a co-worker's headset. However, it's just rando enough that we're not sure. I tend to put things I would not mind having but would not purchase myself. Every company sacrifices sound and build quality for an all in one headset unit. It isn't going to fix itself and you really don't want to move past the return or warranty period.
I'm so excited to get this addressed; I will help in any way I can! Thank you so much for taking your time to post your solution. The crackling has bad days impossible to play , good days 99% of the time it's fine, but every now and again. I moved the modem to a different room where a grounded plug is available and hooked it up that way. I just don't think it mixes well. This doesn't always fix it.
Here you can enable the speakers you wish to use or disable the ones you dont want to use.

Tried to reproduce through my guitar amp, and I could not. Like someone above mentioned, I still get the garbled pops and distortion after a clean boot, and yeah, it's especially noticeable on clean tones. I will update my post with the information you requested when I get home from work. If you do, looping the wire and taping it down at the point of the loose connection may temporarily stop the noise until you can have the connection re-soldered or replace the headset.
They seem to sound better in general as well. I noticed when a game or patch was installing in the background my mic would be crackling. Wiggle the cord at the plug and at the headset while moving the mic to see if you can locate the loose connection. Plug a different headset into the device.

What do you guys think? After that it plays flawlessly had a 4 and a half hour run yesterday, another hour today, now it's work time! Any more open doors I might have missed? For being a supposedly quality audio company, Sony is horrible with their official console audio headset. It doesn't give me a warm and fuzzy feeling though. I haven't experienced it since but I havent tested using the mic while something was happening in the background either. It varies in severity but lately the audio is very consistently crackling and cutting out for seconds at a time. I would notice lag when it happened from time to time, I think it is part of the connection. As the title say, can I have both audio at the same time in one single headset? I really don't understand why people insist on buying these. Did you try other games? Left ear just stopped working.
There have even been a few times that all audio has just stopped briefly then come back on. I'm not sure if its possible to output sound over multiple sources but if its possible the option should be there. Some tones are worse than others Rondo Alla Turca on bass is pop rocks. It is clearly the headphone jack itself. I'm leaving mic out of the discussion as I can handle it in a different way. So glad I didn't just go out and waste money on a new cable. If you still hear the crackling, the problem is likely a loose wire somewhere in your headset or cord.
Unplugging and reconnecting the cable doesn't help. It'll be on the sticker underneath, usually. If you are using a wireless headset, interference may be the issue. I'm posting because I couldn't find a single thread where someone documented trying to go through all the different potential causes that I did and eliminate the static. What happens is the audio in my game is constantly making a crackle or pop noise.
