A buzzing sound on your PC headset is annoying when you are trying to make calls or listen to music. Troubleshoot your PC headset to determine the problem and stop your headset from buzzing. Most of the time, the problem is just static coming from other electronic devices near your PC or headset. Or the problem may be the headset itself.

Check the other electronic products or devices nearby that may be causing static or interference to the connection of your headset. Move the base of the headset away from your computer, at about 12 inches distance if you are using a cordless or Bluetooth-powered headset. Move other devices away one at a time to determine the culprit.
Turn off any nearby device that may be causing the interference. Turn off your TV, radio or speakers to see if the buzzing will stop.
Reduce the speaking volume on your computer by double-clicking the small speaker icon found at the lower-right corner of your desktop. Lower the control for the speaking volume.
Point the microphone of your PC headset toward your chin if you are using it to call someone online. The buzzing sound may be feedback from what you are saying through the microphone.
Lower the volume of the actual headset. If you are listening to music or talking to someone online, a high volume level can cause the headset to buzz or to bounce back the sound coming from the other end.
