Default Clicking sound when tapping screen

Does anyone else notice a faint clicking sound when you touch your screen? It almost sounds like a tiny static charge. It doesn't happen when the screen is off and it doesn't happen when using the stock keyboard but it happens pretty much any other time I touch the screen. I can only hear it in a very quiet environment I'm using a Skinomi glass screen protector but don't remember if it did it before it was installed.

It's exactly what runandhide05 said.

I wonder if there's a way to change this tone to a different sound?

If your rooted it's the
Effect_Tick.ogg
In /system/media/audio/ui
I normally change mine to a more aosp sound in the past because of the god awful Samsung touchwiz UI sounds but htc seems to have a less annoying sound for touch effect

That was it. Kind of an odd sound. Thanks for the help!

I'm having some weird popping sounds coming from my phone. I think its a hardware defect because during the boot animation I hear these strange popping sounds that aren't from the speaker. Just a second ago I heard this sound coming from my phone (not the speakers) that sounded like a click pendulum going side to side. I think I just got a screwed up phone

Yeah I had this too. I actually swapped my first m8 out. New one is fine. Many have had this issue. Hopefully there is nothing wrong with the glue that holds the screen and digitizer together.
