Default [Q] Hissing sounds on Headphone

Hi guys!

First, i'm new to Android and starting to get known to flashing my device.

I have read many tutorials and threats, but never found an exact answer:

My One V is hissing when i use the headphone, which seems to be a common problem on the One V. Somewhere i read, that flashing the Kernel will help and remove this noise. Is that true?

My device:
Android: 4.0.3
Sense Version: 4.0
Software number: 2.22.401.7
Kernel: 3.0.16-g133e482 root@abm020#1 PREEMPT (I dont know what this is, I got the device used...)


So i read that there are some custom Kernels like Hellboy or Kiss, but do they help removing the hissing sounds?
If they do, which Kernel should i choose?

I'am afraid of bricking my device for nothing and would be glad about some help by you!

Kernel: 3.0.16-g133e482 root@abm020#1 PREEMPT is the kernel build. you're on stock it seems. It might be your headphones, try others and see if it's still there.
HTC One V (August 27th 2012 - August 3rd 2013, still own) -> LG Nexus 4 (August 3rd 2013 - January 11th 2014, still own) -> Nokia Lumia 520 (January 11th 2014 - present)

I already tried 5 different inears and even some studio headphones. there are also several other guys here on xda-developers, who have the same problem. It seems that only the stock HTC Kernel devices have those problems, for examples the devices by the german provider O2 do not have those problems.

I understand what you mean and i dont think it depends on what kind of headphones you use. My audio technika headphones even have it. Do you hear the gissing constantly? Or does is disappear when there is no sound playing? It could be the audio output shutting on and off, I have no solution to this.

U won't brick your device till u follow the procedure correctly... + if you are s-on, u r at safer side... Rest about the hissing sound... I also get it sometimes with hellboy... But not a big deal...

on my device, the hissing lasts about 3 seconds longer than the sound played. Until it turns of the headphone jack. But unfortunately it is not only a hissing, but also some other nasty sounds while playing the songs, which makes the device unusable for listening music (for me).

I found several reports of the hissing problems, and also that those two specifications do not have these problems (at least it was reportet):

Software-Version: 2.08.401.2
Kernel-Version: 3.0.16-g42caf24
Baseband-Version: 20.72.30.0833U_3831.17.00.18_M
Hissing: No

Software-Version: 2.08.401.2
Kernel-Version: 3.0.16-gd5b834a
Baseband-Version: 20.66.30.0831U_3831.15.00.19_M

Software-Version: 1.61.207.2
Kernel-Version: 3.0.16-ge3b527d
Baseband-Version: 20.69.30.0832U_3831.16.00.12_M
Hissing: No


and those, wo have the hissing problem:

Software-Version: 1.56.401.2
Kernel-Version: 3.0.16-gd5b834a
Baseband-Version: 20.66.30.0831U_3831.15.00.19_M
Hissing: Yes

Software-Version: 1.56.401.2
Kernel-Version: 3.0.16-gd5b834a
Baseband-Version: 20.66.30.0831U_3831.15.00.19_M
Hissing: Yes

Software-Version: 2.08.401.2
Kernel-Version: 3.0.16-g42caf24
Baseband-Version: 20.72.30.0833U_3831.17.00.18_M
Hissing: Yes


So, on the one hand, it might be the combination of kernel and software version, on the other hand it could be a hardware problem. Any suggestions how to go on? Perhaps there exists a custom rom without the problem? I have read through several of them, but never found something like "Hissing problem solved" in the fixes.
