Headphone Port Buzzing/Whining
So I'm now on my second Nexus 7 (2013). The first was a standard 32gb Wifi model and now I'm using the 32gb LTE model. I didn't swap out my first one w/ this issue because I knew I was going to exchange it for the LTE model as soon as it was available. But now it's still a problem on the new one. I've read elsewhere that there's a buzzing/whining sound on the speakers at low volume but that's not what I'm experiencing.
If I plug my N7 into a set of speakers to play music (from Google Music or wherever), if nothing is playing, there is a very high pitched whine and buzzing sound. It only happens when there isn't a sound being played. If something is playing, it completely goes away. As soon as that song is done, it starts buzzing/whining again. Has anyone else experienced this? It happened on both of my tablets so I'm thinking hardware, but there doesn't seem to be any complaints on XDA...maybe I'm the only one who uses my tablet in this manner? I don't know.
