Re: y570 sound problems (some annoying noise)

Wow, thanks Divided.  That makes a lot of sense.  

 

Is the noise problem bad for you?  If it is, maybe tweaking the EQ to reduce the highs makes it more bearable.  

 

(my two cents as a sound engineer)

Re: y570 sound problems (some annoying noise)

for me is even the wi fi interfering with . but the hard also ... so we can go to a service and ask to shielding the source of the EMI and connecting it to ground ? i think a norml user can t do that at home  , no?

Re: y570 sound problems (some annoying noise)

so wow , i downloaded the new driver from realteck site is a new release on December , and the noise sounds are now more ok , the noise sound is audible only very slow when external speakers are set to the maximum level , but it seams that if i change the power management to super energy saver the sound is gone , and to balanced and maximum power there is still a sound but is now very low than before .. maybe is a problem also with the power management software ...

Y570 Headphone static

I have a relatively new (~4 month old) Y570 and since it was brand new anytime headphones are plugged into the headphone jack there is static.  I updated the RealTek Audio drivers to the latest version (6.0.1.6339) and nothing changed.  Pretty sad that I can't listen to music with my headphones on a brand new laptop...

Re: y570 sound problems (some annoying noise)

I just got a new Lenovo Y570 (i7, 500GB 7200rpm) a couple of days ago and I'm also having this annoying headphone static issue. I changed the Realtek settings to Line In, and this reduced the static a little bit, but I still hear it constantly with headphones. The computer's default speakers are fantastic, but when I listen through my headphones there's always static. All of my drivers are up to date.

 

What all can I try to fix this issue? Is it a hardware issue, and I need to get sent a new one? Please help, as I cannot bear using a laptop with constant static issues for forever.

 

EDIT: I'm using the standard Apple headphones that come with an iPhone, if that makes any difference.

Re: y570 sound problems (some annoying noise)

To All,

     See this NBR thread, post #3 through post #8. Cheap headphones, and most ear buds, tend to produce the annoying noise. Upgrade your headphones, and stop using those tin ear buds!Smiley Frustrated

     Post #8 has a suggestion to get rid of it.

Re: y570 sound problems (some annoying noise)

Any fix in the meantime? Even if it involves hardware intervention? (i'm not changing my Denon earbuds - no)

I don't believe that grounding theory because i get static with 2pin power jack and also without power cord.. But there IS something with electricity because i get electro shock every now and then when i touch my laptop while it's charging. :s

Re: y570 sound problems (some annoying noise)

Hi,

 

I just got my Y570 last week via Lenovo online store and I am having the same problem with the headphone jack.

 

The problem occurs on both of my headphone (Sennheiser HD 202 MKII and AudioTechnica ATHM50s).  I have the latest driver from the Lenovo website.  The regular speaker works fine without any noise.

 

Any suggestion is appreciated.

 

Thanks

Smiley Happy
