So I just recently bought an audio splitter so that I am able to hear myself playing whilst recording onto my laptop. The latency was sound terrible when I used the playback feature so this is what I chose. Anyway, when I have the splitter connected to my headphones and a line out to my laptop I get this electrical clicking sound. I've isolated it to make sure that it is in fact coming from my laptop.

Do I just need to deal with this noise or are there techniques for getting rid of it?
