Hello,

Is it possible to fix noise in headphones? I have been testing 3 types of headphones and I got the same results. My motherboard has integrated ALC1220 card so I have to use AppleALC.kext for it. Is it possible to fix? Or may new dedicated audio card would work better?

Hi Davede,

Try with config file.. layout-id 7 for Mojave with latest AppleALC kext. I have tried with Z370N HD3P motherboard with same ALC1220 card.

Do you get coil whine when using the headphones socket on this mobo? I selected HDMI output then plugged my headphones into the monitor and the coil whine disappeared.
