Hey, everytime i put on a new set of strings, the high e string pops when i tune it. i'm using 11s in standard tuning, but it also does it on 10s in standard. am i doing something wrong?

Action is the height of the strings from the from the fretboard so has nothing to do with this.

Yeah, it does, the higher the action, the tighter the strings are, therefore the higher risk of something breaking. Or am I mistaken?

I wouldn't have thought so; the difference in tension caused by action must be so minimal I highly doubt it makes any difference.
