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)

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?

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 (126.96.36.19939) and nothing changed. Pretty sad that I can't listen to music with my headphones on a brand new laptop...

mine is direct from realteck site http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=24&Level=4&Conn=3&DownType..., the new version is 188.8.131.5226 i installed and the noise sound are more ok now , you can try it , the latest version was released 2011/12/16 so you have a old version installed , just in this version the noise start to go for me. there are still some noise sounds but not like before , and as i said in the previos message when a change the power management the sound is different every time i chose a diferent power plan...

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.

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

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

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.
