I plugged my headphones into my Mac earlier to listen to some music. Almost immediately, I noticed a sort of white noise in the background. Then, every time I would get a message on Skype or Facebook or something of that sort, the white noise would be louder and there would also be weird noises that I don't really know how to explain. They sound kind of like..chirps and buzzes? I'm not really sure how to explain them. I tried changing the alert sound effects and everything, but nothing stopped it except for taking my headphones out. And I also noticed my trash doesn't make a sound anymore when I empty it, both with and without headphones.
I'm not sure if this is a problem with my headphones or my Mac itself, but some input would be greatly appreciated. My headphones seem to be working fine on my mom's Windows computer..

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
