    Constant Sizzling noise in Background...

    • Written by from Notre-Dame-de-L'Ile-Perrot

    I received this BEAT headset for Christmas. When I opened the box, the packing is immaculate. You have pleasure to unpack the box cause it's perfect. The quality of the headset is also very nice. Ear cushions are very comfortable with their leather imitation. Overall, you really have the impression that you spent your money well on that one. The issue is when you plug the headset in your music device. By plugging the cable in the headset, you basically turn it on and just there, you can hear the issue. This constant sizzling noise. When there is no music, it sounds like a far away radio with no signal. When you listen to some beat music (i.e. Hiphop, Rap, R&B, Techno) and you pump up the volume to about 75% you can't hear that noise anymore cause the music eliminates it. But if you lisen to any sort of quiet music, volume around 40-50% you always have this sizzling noise in background which is totally anoying. Today, I am returning the headset back to Apple. I made sure before that to read the reviews on the web and it seams that this issue has been there since the beginning of the BEAT STUDIO model.
