Has anyone else noticed any issues with a background noise behind the audio? It is most noticeable with headphones, however I can identify it regardless of how i am playing audio. It sounds like a sort of static/buzzing sound, and is really irritating now I've noticed it.

I do have background noises that do sound like some static/buzzing, most noticeable after the ringtone / notificiation playback, for a second. And no, the actual ringtone / soundfiles are just fine, its related to the One.

S/N on Qualcomm DACs is not the best, but this sounds like maybe something different.

Hi I know the solution! Just switch off the NFC!

Settings/more/nfc

And you will be happy

The noise is really quite significant, it makes listening to music over headphones pretty bad below half volume.

NFC was already turned off, but thanks for the advice anyway.

Re: [Q] Audio issues- background noise
I've noticed the hissing when I use the camera to video something

I'm waiting for a replacement but now wonder if all phones are affected by the problem

I doubt it, this is the only thread describing this problem so far. Return it is... Love the phone but am hating the build quality.

I think it might relate to Enable Beats sound. However, customer service told me HTC is working on this and will fix in SW.

It is the beats audio. Turn it off and the hiss is greatly reduced.

Beats audio seems to make no difference, have a replacement coming tomorrow so will be able to see whether it is a manufacturing fault or not.
