    I guess it depends if one has a defective device.
    Mine doesn't hiss!

    I've had both the iPhone 7 & 7 Plus, and I've yet to hear my hissing sounds.

    Some iPhone 7 users have noticed an odd hissing sound coming from their device while putting the new A10 Fusion processor to the test. I have not heard it in my 7 Plus.

    I've never heard it but have read various articles about it stating that it is completely normal and only occurs when the CPU is being placed under a lot of stress working overtime. So to answer the question, no it's not annoying at all because I've never heard it.

    Never heard it on normal use. During performance testing, you can hear it when you put your phone up to your ears. But that's it. I've gotten it warm with normal usage and never heard it.

    I heard it when I was actually looking for the sound. I got my 7 Plus replaced on Saturday and the sound is now non-existent.

    Apparently there is a 'Hissing sound' but i think people are just trying to find things wrong with the iPhone so they add a new 'Gate'. To me the iPhone was absolutely fine this time around. (in my opinion)

    Mine has a pretty bad hiss when taking videos. I tested it in my quiet bedroom by taking a video of my room with the 7+ and then taking a video with my iPad. I also did a voice memo recording to see if that created a buzz and it wasn't present there.

    I know this thread is a little older, but I just returned an unlocked 7 Plus because it made a pretty bad hissing noise in videos, even when it wasn't completely quiet. Does every iPhone 7 do this? I've now been through 3 of them (2 AT&T and 1 Unlocked). This is honestly the only phone on the market that I want, but the video recording is terrible. We have one month old twins and I don't really want to ruin the first videos of them because of some hissing/popping noise in the background.

    FWIW, I never noticed the processor hissing during just regular use - but it was absolutely present on videos.
