For the Yoga 2 Pro owners out there, how much static do you have in your headphone jack? I am loving everything about this laptop except for some noticeable static at low volumes and some backlight bleeding at the bottom of the screen. I have tried two different headsets, my Senheiser HD 280 Pros and my Etymotic earbuds.
I am curious how everyone elses behaves. If this is normal I can probably live with it. If I am the only one, I may get it replaced. Build date 11/06/2013, purchased from Lenovo's website.
Solved! Go to Solution.

One more update. I may have solved my problem. I uninstalled the realtek driver and now the line is clean, no noise. It reverted back to the windows driver, which seems just as good or better than the realtek one.

static is mostly caused by mic input (unplugged). Disabling it almost everytime helped me. Realtec detects plug and unplug of devices and sets channels properly so it's quite possible it turns the mic on as it cannot tell because of one jack.

You're right: the noise is now gone. But after I deinstalled the realtek driver, my laptop speakers are not working anymore... When I unplug the headphone, and play music, windows shows that audio is played (you can see it in the equalizer..) but I can't here anything, even on 100% volume level
What have you done, to solve this?

In the meantime I found a solution: The first times, I always used the software removal function from Windows -> Programs in the control panel. The last time I removed the audio device in the device manager directly, I was asked, if I would like to remove the audio software, too - I confirmed and now everything works so far.
Thanks for your shared hints ;-)
But I'm still thinking about to send my laptop back, because we can expect more for such a price, LENOVO!! I definitely won't recommend your product to other people.

Registered just to give this thumbs up. It was annoying having an expensive laptop and headphones and having to listen to your phone because the quality was so bad from the static. thanks for sharing !
