Opening the forum makes my wireless headphones think there will be sound

Recommended Posts

Every time I open or reload this forum, JBL T450BT headphones make me listen to white noise. It lasts for 30 seconds. Muting all forum tabs doesn't help. DAE have this problem?

I have this problem with my Sennheiser 4.40. It's annoying lol, especially when browsing in a quiet environment and that's the only noise.

 

I'm not sure what causes it, but maybe @colonel_mortis does.

Browser related maybe? Have you tried with other browsers? At one point some browsers counted ads as video playing audio (speaker icon in tab).

The forum uses a library for handling the sounds, and I think one of the things that it does is make the browser preload the notification sound by telling it to play it then stopping it straight away when it's loaded. This then allows the notification sound to work properly later on. I'm not 100% sure about that though, and muting the forum tab ought to fix that. It's strange that your headphones would play white noise after the forum plays a split second of sound though - is that normal?


I don't work for Floatplane Media, so any Floatplane comments that I make are my own and may be incorrect or in conflict with the official view.

I'm going to guess it is because as I said above, my headphones do the same thing. It also happens with other apps and sometimes notification sounds.

Just checked. It happens in Firefox 56, but not in Internet Explorer.
