Indeed I know this all too well..I truly believe they are getting close. Anyway. I thank you. Just dying to know. Mine is brand new. Well 2 weeks. Or less. Its always crackling. Makes me miss the m8. Lol

mine does the crackling too only when the phone is on speaker; I wasn't sure if this was a defect or something that needed to be updated via software

OK update... New replacement in hand since last Saturday and made numerous calls with and without the charger connected and do not hear the crackling... Definitely a faulty unit.
Take it back if it is. They may not take it right away unless they can reproduce the sound immediately. Eventually they will if u take it back and complain a second time.

I'm getting this too. I've done the volume mod. Do you think it could be part of the problem. . I hardly ever use my phone to actually call so I'm not sure if it did this before or not.

The crackling does not sound like a blown speaker... it sounds more like electrical noise interfering with the audio of the earpiece... I'm thinking it was a grounding issue...
