    I think we can safely say, this is a real issue for some. Not all, but some. Hopefully just a bad batch or two.

    Here is another video test, where the noise is present in the recording itself.

    Still hasn't been resolved...

    The Senior Advisor I'm speaking with doesn't seem to be familiar with Apple's options.

    Don't tell a person something you cannot deliver on, for instance, overnight air. Then, to not just take initiative and keep playing phone tag.

    Another day has come and gone, and I just want to get rid of this already. It sounds like cicadas, for crying out loud.

    I work 12-14 hr days and it's hard as hell trying to work something out when they have to verify everything by email.

    Frustrating...

    Oh wow. As I was listening to this I didn't think I was able to hear it, but once the video ended my ears registered the loss of the background static.

    I agree there is a sound in your video, OP. However where it gets worse is when you put the mic up against the phone which is the equivalent to putting it up to your ear, in a sense. You conditioned yourself to listen for it all the time now, and it's going to bother you. I say just return the phone and get another one whether you're able to exchange it or wait it out for another 7 Plus in that color.

    I have hyper-sensitive hearing which basically means I can hear a mouse fart in Florida (I'm in Oregon) and I can't hear it. I started recording a 4k video and I still don't hear it.

    Is there any indication of how widespread this issue is? Is anyone able to confirm that their Plus is definitively not making any buzzing sounds? Anyone out there whose phone is making the sounds and has the 256 gb version? One theory flying around is that the 128 gb model is the only model doing it.

    Well, I have the 32GB version and I don't hear even holding it next to my ear.

    Really hoping this is just a "small" batch of phones. Mine isn't scheduled to be delivered for another month. Hoping they resolve the issue before then! I have really sensitive hearing. I can't even own mechanical watches. The ticking drives me insane.

    So far so good. I got it today, I've been on it all day setting it up, playing around, multi tasking and it's quiet as a mouse.

    I wish I could hear a mouse fart in Florida.

    I know some of the sounds from different users are louder than others, but isn't this kind of the same when your computer is doing heavy tasks?

    Maybe but you don't use your laptop as a phone...
