Background Static Noise in Teams meetings
Microsoft Teams creates a buzzing noise whenever connected to a meeting. Especially, when the other participants are on mute.
Considering Teams as Microsoft's upcoming product this issue projects it in a poor light when a whole organisation face this issue.
The issue occurs when connected to any network.
Teams would be a great tool if this issue is rectified in the coming update.
I'm on a meeting right now, it's just me, I'm muted and my video is off, and there's still a ton of static noise. I don't have this issue with any other meeting software. Please fix this.

I get the same thing, even when Skype is not running.

This happens to me - but is caused by also having Skype running. When I start a Teams call I get a buzzing noise in the headset which changes to a beeping noise after about 30 seconds to a minute. The solution is to shut down Skpye. (Settings>File>Exit). As we are in the early days of Teams we have not yet set up any coexistence modes for Skype and Teams - it may be that one of these modes will fix it. I am using a Jabra Voice UC 750a headset certified for Skype for Business. The volume and mute functions on the headset cable work correctly in Teams.
Any resolution? We're having the same issue. Helps a bit when everyone except the speaker mutes, but that's not the best way to have a conversation.

Has there been any information on this. We are starting to see this as well.
Just happened on our meeting, too. We had to end it!

Has this issue been resolved? What was the root cause and remediation?

even when all people are muted their is static, this is unprofessional
When in a meeting the people on the other end of the call hear a lot of static coming from my mic what can I do? It just started happening.
I hear static noise (white noise) all the time when using the Android application or Windows application with my BOSE QuietComfort 35 bluetooth headset. (with noise cancelling)
It is not very loud, so I think some people may not notice it.
It it for me unrelated to people having talked or anything else. It is constant.
I do not hear the noise when using the laptop speakers.
There is no noise using Viber or Google Duo with this headset.
any resolution or tips on this?

Very annoying, especially in meetings with scheduled intermissions - ended up muting Teams through Windows Volume Mixer until we resumed. Can also leave and rejoin, but that confuses other attendees.

Can confirm this happens.
In addition I have noticed the following behavior: People who initially join muted cause no noise. As soon as someone speaks the hissing starts, even if that user mutes again and everyone else is muted. The line remains clear for THAT user until someone else speaks.
