RE: Dell XPS 15 9550 Crackling Noise coming from speakers when plugging and un plugging power supply.

Hey guys. I ordered the Dell XPS 15 4k 512gb on April 4th and had these exact issues, I tried to fix it with help from support but nothing worked so I returned it for a new computer and the new one arrived today with exactly the same issues. Has anyone found out more about this?

^ I did the same exact thing. I thought it was a defect, returned it and got a new one. Same problem. If you change the settings in Audio -> Preset from Maxxsense to any other settings. You'll be good bro.

Righ-click speaker icon on the taskbar and click on troubleshoot sound problems. It should sort it out, it worked for me.  And make sure nothing is ticked in enhancements.

I've had the same issue (Inspiron 11 3158) - and it fixed by setting at the Dell Audio control panel - set the audio quality to 24Bit/48Khz or 16Bit/48Khz.
it seems the MaxxAudio software can't process 96Khz and 192Khz at real time properly.

Or, you can completely disable all enhancement at speaker properties -> enhancement -> tick the "disable all enhancement"
