Is my laptop destroying my audio devices?

Hey guys! I have quite an odd problem, but hope you might now the answer.

First, I had a problem with my HD215 headphones, because one driver started sounding a bit quieter, then it happened with my speakers, then it happened with my superlux headphones, then I found out that the output on the onboard card is weaker on one side, so I thought it's a soundcard problem, so I bought an interface (Focusrite iTrack, used tho). Devices kept sounding quieter on one side (it's not same on every device, on some is left on some is right), then it turned out when I checked it after some time that one of the output chanels is weaker on my interface too! It's not about settings, balance on left and right is always 100%, i tested some of these devices on other computers, and the result is the same!

Could it be that electricity (i don't know, I'm not into it) from my laptop is ruining my devices? And how can I check it and fix it, if so?

Thank you!
