Well, my Stream 7 tablet decided to die today. I've only had it for four months and don't use it constantly. White lines through the display.

After receiving a Stream 7 unit this week I too, of course, am suffering from static noises on the headphone socket.

Trying to minimize the eminent problem I decided to hook up my FiiO Killimanjaro 2 headphone amp. The (input) impedance of such a device is much higher than that of headphones, minimizing the current delivered by the tablet's headphone socket.

 

In short: connected to my Sennheiser HD439 the results are astonishing! Only when amplifying VERY loud the noise can be heard and than still at a much much lower volume than without the amp in between.

This 'solution' might not be the cheapest one but cheaper solutions than the aforementioned FiiO amp might be available, too. Just make sure the current drawn from the Stream 7 headphone plug is as low as possible. This happens with connecting virtually any amp (incl. connecting it to inputs of other devices like laptop/computer inputs, HIFI amps, etc.)

cheap, ease of use, works great.

 

Alternatively, I use bluetooth headset.

 

Bye

Cheap yes, but it also requires a USB otg adapter and means you have a big lump sticking out the side,

 

Just get high impedance headphones. Why make things more complicated?

Think I am going to try and go down the Bluetooth headphones route. Someone earlier in this thread said that even with Bluetooth headphones they had the same buzzing/noise issue, but can't see how this is possible as it will be transferring sound via the Bluetooth rather than the faulty 3.5mm jack.

yea bluetooth would be immune to it, because the data is sent directly to the DAC in the bluetooth reciever and amplified there. Their reciever may have been just very low quality itself.

Sound issue fixed after upgrading to Win 10 and also downloading HP's latest BIOS flash and also all other drivers. Google HP Stream 7 drivers and click on the link that takes you to HP (not to a 3rd party site).

 

Ironically the warranty exchange unit I got from HP months ago didn't fix it, but something in the Win 10 + separately download and install all the Win 10 drivers here fixed it.
