Dell XPS 13 9360 headphone hissing
Closed, WontfixPublic


I've recently installed Solus on a Dell 9360 and have encountered an issue where the audio out always has an intense noise in the background. This issue has been reported by many others on different distros. I have managed to fix this issue by increasing the Intel audio card's headphone mic boost to 10 dB, after which the noise is completely gone.

Here's my asound.state file which I restore at boot to mitigate the issue:

I have the same laptop, it's something to do with the microphone boost. The Arch Wiki has a good example of how to fix the issue.

Edit: Apparently I didn't read the description properly, Ill leave the link here because it might well be helpful to someone with the same issue.
