    I don't have perfect hearing and I can hear it...annoying to say the least huh?

    What device do you have?

    Not normal. Not to this degree....not even close. And not all 7's are affected. It's a legit issue for some.

    The well known very slight hiss coming from the 6 series, is completely different. Way less audible. Even to the same set of ears

    Yes it is. Some are just louder then other. Choke and coil whine. So what 30 ppm have reported it out of millions?

    It's more than that. Way more than 30 on Macrumors alone, have reported that same very loud hiss and click. Not typical coil whine, by any stretch. That's why it's being discussed. It's a legit issue for some. Can't simply dismiss it, because you think it's normal. It's not.

    Hopefully just a bad batch or two.

    If I can't hear it on normal use, i'm definitely not going to put my phone to my ear to try. I've determined it's always best to let the issue find me rather than me looking for an issue. Then I'll never be satisfied.

    That noise in the video seems crazy. Can you hear that when the phone is just sitting there? Or did you have to try and listen for it?

    Default "Hear" is my buzzing sound

    This seems to be more than coil whine...

    A series of clicks, whirring, and buzzing would indicate coil whine...

    This is a straight "buzzing" sound...I didn't notice any pause to indicate what is normally associated with it.

    Not to mention, I would consider this deafening in a quiet environment...

    I don't have to smash the phone to my cranium to hear it; partly the reason I decided to record it with my 6S Plus. Some forums speculate that people were using hi-def microphones to capture the sound. I recorded an "everyday" video that anyone with a 6S Plus would be able to duplicate if their phone was doing the same.

    I really don't think I'm being overly sensitive about the noise coming from it. It's there, and it's legitimate.

    I don't want to have an incendiary jack-in-the-box like the Note 7

    Were the Note 7 explosions preceded by a barely audible buzz? I'm still yet to hear someone say they heard the sound while their phone was just sitting. Every thing I've read had people pressing their ears against the camera area to hear this sound.

    Not trying to minimize your issue. More trying to understand the severity of it.

    No, I get it...

    It's part of the reason why I recorded it the way I did. As far as the Note 7 recall, I don't know if there was an auditory warning before it went up in smoke. It is a concerning issue though...I've scoured these forums and although a lot of devices make some noise to a varying degree, the user has to literally have their phone pressed against their ear to hear it.

    Just for the record, I also have an iPhone 7 Black 128GB with AT&T that does make "some" noise...BUT...you have to smash that thing in your skull to hear it. Also, the sound coming from that device is "different," it sounds more like processor chatter "coil whine," than the incessant beehive I have in mine.

    UPDATE:

    After speaking with a senior advisor from Apple who, was in turn collaborating with an engineering team, I was requested that my device be sent in for, "further analysis."

    I have yet to be called, I just received an email from the senior advisor to set up a replacement. So, I guess I'll wait for the call and see what happens.

    I'm interested to see what the resolution to your issue is, OP. Good luck!

    Well, I'm the odd guy out. I can't hear it.

    I tired with earphones with the OP's video and this one:



    Nothing. There are three possibilities:

    1) It's too low for me to separate it from ambient noise.
    2) It's too high a frequency for me to hear
    3) I'm hearing it but don't realize it's the problem.

    In the first video I hear what I think is the one phone (recording the noise) bumping against the suspect phone.

    In the second video, there's no control scenario- the mic isolated from room sound with no ambient sound and no phone. Then maybe I could tell what I'm supposed to be hearing. "Lou" describes the sound as "kind of a clunk cluck" and then makes a noise like white noise.

    In both videos and with Lou's three phones I hear what I ascribe as the ambient sound of a "live" room. I'm fairly confident that if I get a 7 (or 7s) I won't be hearing what everybody else is. LOL! It's be like the old man with hearing aids turn up high and he can't hear the feedback!

    Sorry for the OP's misfortune, but I think Apple will make it right in the end. Or.. "You're just listening wrong"?

    Have to admit, that sound would be cool if you had an active wallpaper of a neon sign.

    I don't have to press it against my ear just hold it by my ear. It's actually pretty noticeable once you hear it. I'm certain I eventually would have been in a quiet house looking for what the heck was making that noise. It would have drove me nuts until I found it.

    I pressed the back of my phone against my ear and scrolled through my iTunes list. I could definitely hear a buzz, but as soon as my ear was no longer physically pressed against the phone, I couldn't hear anything.
