A few months ago it started the first time when I was listening to music using my headphones: The sound started to be noisily blurred, sounding like an old broken radio with bad connection.
I blamed the headphones but it came up a few days later again. After switching to regular speakers it gave me the very same result. Strangely metallic blurred sound.
Doing some research didn't bring any useful result but I assumed it might be a software-issue as I assume it's a different thing if I output my sounds via the jack or the speakers. Also as a new HD was planned to purchase this problem should disappear by itself when I install a new Ubuntu (Mate).
Right now it just came up again. I checked
dmesg but there was nothing of relevance. I played some other music using a different player to see whether or not the issue will persist. Two minutes after going on with that noise everything is went to normal.
What could that be?
pactl list and
pactl list both give reasonable outputs (if it helps I can add thatinformation)
