Default [Q] Battery Door Vibration

I have the G900W8 from Canada and I am wondering if it is just my device but whenever any sort of audio plays through the mono speaker on the back of the device the entire battery door vibrates or buzzes anyone else having this issue or should I get the device exchanged? If its a common issue has anyone found a work around to make it stop its driving me mad lol. Sorry if this was asked previously I looked through this forum and didnt see it but I could have honestly missed something.
Current Devices:
HTC One M8, Galaxy Note 3 N900W8, Galaxy S5 G900W8

Current Tablet
iPad Mini w/ Retina Display

I'd get it exchanged. Somehow, mic's vibration gets transmitted to the body of the device.

No buzzing, but I did notice that it vibrates like crazy.

Looks like it has something to do with how the watertight seal keeps the backing a few mm away from the actual back of the phone.

Make sure it's all clipped down properly.

The quick start manual actually states that due to watertight seal there are vibrations...

I use a hybrid case. A perk it has is it dampens the vibration a good deal.
