Wireless keyboard making "popping" noises

About two weeks ago I bought a wireless keyboard and mouse. A few days ago I started hearing "popping" noises in my headphones whenever I would hit a key on the keyboard. I then unpluged my headphones to see if it would also come out of my speakers, but it didn't, it only does it in the headphones. Has anyone else had this happen? Is there a way to fix it? I have included a wav file of the sound, you might have to turn your speakers up in order to hear it. Let me know.

Click to hear the sound.

Where are the wireless receiver situated? Is it near your cable/headphone/sound card? I'm guessing interference is the cause of the noise. You might also want to check if your headphones are magnetically shielded or not.

HA HA!!! That was it!!!, I didn't make the connection, but the receiver had fallen off of where i had it, and it was sitting closer to my sound card. As soon as I moved it back the popping stopped. Thank you.
