popping noise driving me mad on s5!
I have the same problem with a new s5 from 3 network. It's highly annoying and doesn't seem to matter which music player is used, power saver on or off and volume low or high on the phone or external speaker via an auxiliary cable. The same cable might I add I used for months for my S3. This just adds to annoying aspects to the s5 and I'm already looking for alternatives to Samsung even though my contract still has 23 months left! A fix for this is needed and will send the handset back for replacement if I have to!

They're was a setting inside one of the system files you could edit to help with the popping sound. I'll try to find the thread and post it up.

OK thanks. I have reluctantly factory reset and the noise is still there sometimes so others have found reset doesn't work. Will look at settings if you can find the thread.

I can't find it but I know it had to do with the mixer_paths.xml file. I'm just not sure what needed to be edited. I'll keep looking tho.

I'm having the same problem . Only when I skip to the next song and it is only out of the left channel.

Popping sound when skipping songs
Have you tried enabling the equaliser in settings under audio effects, as this has resolved the issue for me.

I have the problem as well. Its freaking ridiculous. I thought it was my music player for the longest time. I don't believe I had the issue when I first got the phone, but I really don't remember. I don't have power saving on and it doesn't happen all the time either. But it only happens at song changes or pause/unpause. I get the same double pop as nathandias described. Its bothering me a ton.

i was thinking it would be nice if people recorded the sound (standard audio cable from phone jack to line-in or mic of a computer)

it would be strange for it to be happening across such varied android versions (start of thread is when 4.4 was used, you can have 6 now with cyanogenmod, 5.1.1 from samsung, etc)

Hi,

I have the same problem, it's really annoying! I cannot understand why not much more people are complaining about this. It shouldn't be a problem in a Smartphone today! My Samsung S III didn't have this issue.

I made a video so you can see what we are talking about: Link deleted Unfortunately, I am not allowed to post a link here. You find it on Youtube entitled "Samsung S5 SM-G900F, popping sound between songs".

Did anyone find a solution? Thank you.

Hi. OP was a while ago! The solution was to use a logitech Bluetooth reciever connected to my 5.1 speaker system. Turns out it stops the annoying noise and for me with my s5 had better and louder sound quality. Well worth the purchase!

Hi,

thanks for your reply. But sorry, this cannot be the solution. I use my smartphone for music with headphones, in my car and with 2.1 speakers.

What the hell is going on with Samsung? It's awkward. Should not be so difficult to develop an mp3 player that works in 2014. The Samsung S5 cost 700 EUR when it was new, I think you can expect that. Why are not much more people complaining?

I think I will cancel my purchase.
