So I just got my S5 yesterday, it is all stock unrooted. When listening to music in the car, between songs, there is this popping sound. Not super annoying, but still it's not very pleasant to hear. Also happens when a notification sound goes off in the middle of a song, between the end of the notification sound and when the music starts again. Anyone else have this problem?

Try resetting your phone if it stops the problem, otherwise, try flashing stock firmware, this will not trip your knox. If the issue is not resolved, return the handset for a replacement.

Are you using Bluetooth? Could be an interference somewhere or your volume on the phone is turned up too loud.

Is your phone connected to your car's speaker? Or are you just playing the music over your phone?

I have the same problem. It is not too often, but it does happen every once in a while. I notice it more when connected to car speakers (via cable, no bluetooth). I am not sure if it happens with (regular, no bluetooth) headphones.

My phone is also stock, no root or anything. I've noticed the first time I tried it. I am not sure if I need to return it or not...

It might be the cables. Though I have not experienced this with my phone, my earphones used to have the popping sounds and then one day one side just totally went off only to reconnect occasionally when I move it to a right bendy position, with the poppy sounds. So it might be the cables.

Audio Click, pop, or stutter.

Yes, always happens when using bluetooth over car speaker system. Turning on the screen will stop it from happening. From the information I have found here and on the web, the power saving that samsung wrote to help conserve battery let's the CPU go into a low power state when the phone's screen has been off for a period of time. But if you happen to be streaming music, it will start to skip, pop, or stutter. If you turn the screen on for a short period, don't even have to unlock the lock screen, it will stop misbehaving for the same short period of time. However, if you plug your phone in while driving, you can just leave the screen on and you should not experience the problem. Hope this helps, you can google it for more information.

Red face Pop Issue solved.
I've solved the issue. The reason that it makes a pop sound in between songs, is because when power saving mode is on, it is turning off the speaker in between songs. Just turn off "power saving" mode in your settings pull down on your Samsung, and it won't make a pop sound anymore.

I am encountering the same problem on my Verizon Galaxy S5. There is a popping noise (actually it is a double "pop pop" sound) when switching tracks (occurs in Samsung music player as well as Google Play Music). It's also noticeable when muting/unmuting the phone, and when the phone screen seems to go off. I have disabled power saving features as suggested, but the problem remains.

The problem is not noticeable on headphones (but could be due to the lower volume levels of headphones). It IS noticeable when I use the phone with an AUX cable in my car, and extremely bad on the PA loudspeaker system I use for work (I'm a dance teacher, and have generally used my phone as a music player). This is very annoying, and not what I would expect from Samsung's "flagship" phone.

I did a factory reset as suggested by Samsung tech support. Still have the problem.

I took the phone into Verizon's corporate store in SF, and the Verizon staff member recreated the problem with his own S5 too, suggesting this problem is inherent in all S5s.

What baffles me is the lack of a large number of complaints on message boards and the Samsung support forum. Doesn't anyone use their cell phone to play music at birthday parties, weddings, etc? I would have expected more outcry about this.

Any help appreciated!
