One of the most annoying problems that you can find when you put on your headphones and connect the source (it can be your mobile, a tablet, the computer, the TV) is the intermittent creaking sound. If the sound of your headphones creaks and you are looking for a solutionbelow we list what are the most common causes and how to solve it.

Before getting down to work, it is worth reviewing some general aspects that may be responsible for this unpleasant effect.

The first is as simple as deactivating the Bluetooth of the sending device and reactivating it. Also, you can also try unpair the headphones and reconnect themto make sure that the connection is correct.


This operation causes the source and headphones to cease communication, but does not factory resetanother possible solution that you can carry out on some models, which have a small hole in which you will have to insert a pin and push until you hear a click.

Check if the creaks always occur or only when Low battery levelsince it can also be the cause.

Another possible source of creaking can be the interference caused by another nearby device that works with waves, it can be a Bluetooth device, but also a microwave oven. In that case, Sony’s help guide invites you to move that potential interfering device away from your headphones and point its antenna at your phone.

But it can also be that the headphones produce crackling noises because you have moved too far from the emitting device. Remember that, as a general rule, the Bluetooth radius is about 10 meters, but it is better not to reach that limit and get closer.

One way to solve certain problems is update your firmware. Within the Bluetooth section of your phone you can view data like this from the devices connected through this protocol. If you are not very sure what it is, in some cases you have the option of going to the manufacturer’s website where you will find the latest version and download it for later installation.

How to clean your in-ear or in-ear headphones safely and cheaply

I keep hearing crackling in my headphones

So far we have considered problems related to software, but not physical ones. One of the most common has to do with the presence of foreign elements, such as dirt, but also water. Before making the decision to take it to the technical service or even considering the purchase of new headphones, try to perform a thorough cleaning.

Although in Xataka we have explained how to do it step by step, this is an easy way to solve the problem of creaks and also keep them as the first day. Though roughly the cleaning procedure It is similar regardless of the format, we will focus on in-ears, due to their small size (which can be critical when having such small pieces) and popularity.

First extract and clean the rubber that surrounds it and wash it with water and neutral soap. To clean the headphones in question, use a soft, lint-free cloth. If desired, add a few drops of isopropyl alcohol to the cloth first. To avoid damaging the earpiece and metal mesh that you’ll find on many headphones, use a soft-bristled toothbrush. Operate gently, avoid fabric and moisture remains and reassemble all parts when they are completely dry.

Brush

If your headphones are wired, they may the connection plug is dirty, something very common on the other hand in devices such as the telephone, always in our pocket. The first thing is to place the device vertically with the slot facing down and give it gentle taps. If it doesn’t fix it, use a wooden or plastic toothpick and carefully insert it into the port and move it back and forth (you can also do this if your phone won’t charge). Then, blow to remove the remains.

Another possible mistake with wired headphones is that the plug is slightly bent. A delicate but effective operation can be to try to straighten it with pliers. Proceed with great care so as not to damage it further.

The next trouble spot with a wired headset may be that the connection area between the cable and the plug is damaged, something that usually happens because of doubles over time. Although the theory is not complex (remove the protective plastic and fix it by welding), in practice, unless you have experience and the tools, the remedy is probably worse than the disease.

If after trying these tips you have not been able to solve the crackles of your headphones, if they are under warrantyour recommendation is that you go to the manufacturer in search of diagnosis.

I have tried this trick to save on heating. It is cheap and you can do it with materials you have at home

A moment ago we saw a method that has gone viral to stop heat loss at home and also cheap, since it uses low-cost materials. We already have the loss controlled but Can home heating be improved?

DIY comes again to help us with our homework and this time with materials that we all have at home. Aluminum foil is the key in a trick that combines it with the radiators at home to help better distribute the heat that comes out of them.

Don’t waste heat on the wall


Because aluminum foil, the one that many of us have been calling Albal paper for years (a brand that manages to associate itself with a product) can be used for more than just storing snacks when we go to the countryside or to keep the flavor of dishes safe and well prepared when we cook them or when we are going to put them in the fridge.

And it is that aluminum foil can be combined with radiators that we have at home in order to improve the performance that these offer and make it unnecessary to have the heating on for so many hours and incidentally we achieve that it is not necessary to raise the temperature of the thermostat.

With this trick, what we achieve is to improve the circulation of heat given off by the radiators at home, managing to increase the temperature by multiplying the heating effect.

This is the solution that you can try and that will also make you spend less, if the heating at home does not work

In order to use this system, we just have to look for some cardboard that we have at home and cover it with aluminum foil. With the cardboard already covered, now all that remains is to place it in the rear area of ​​the radiator and around it. The goal is for it to be between the radiator and the wall.

gain heat

What this system does is redirect heat to another direction in the roomimproving the distribution and increasing the heat sensation of the radiator, since, instead of being lost on the wall, the heat bounces off the Albal paper that covers the cardboard and thus makes it easier for it to spread to other areas of the room.

It’s a kind of mirror effectsimilar to what car headlights can use with lights, only here instead of lighting we are talking about heat.

Thus can improve the feeling of warmth at home and everything, without having to raise the temperature of the heating.
