5610 playing music files with short cracking sound

i have tried different convertion of mp3 either in variable or constant format from 128kbps-320kbps, while playback using earphone i can notice there is some cracking or pop sound in the background of the songs. the mp3 got no problem playback using my pc, is clean and clear. and the equalizer is set to normal. is there any other user having the same problem as mine?

Re: 5610 playing music files with short cracking sound

At the time of this post, there is no fix for this issue.

I myself am encountering this problem and I am greatly annoyed by this.

Nokia touts the phone as being able to produce "crystal clear sound", but this is hardly the case at the time of shipping.

Perhaps Nokia should have held of on the launch of this phone until it was able to deliver on its vision for a music phone.

As it is, the phone is an immense disappointment and has greatly tarnished Nokia's reputation in my eyes.

In time, Nokia might release an update that will address this issue. But for me, the damage has been done. Because of this issue, I have been introduced to other brands of phones and will most likely not consider Nokia for any future phone purchases.

The cracking is there, alright, even with the new firmware V 04.81. Keep on working, Nokia, there is a lot to do!!

Re: 5610 playing music files with short cracking sound

Same problem here (and my headphones are fine). A small crackling sound every once in a while. I'm very disappointed, since I brought this phone hoping it could replace my MD player. Is there any hope for a fix??

Re: 5610 playing music files with short cracking sound

and hey u know wat i have noticed one more thing
that when i m listening to the songs in the music player..
and if the volume is at level 1 instead of full volume..
and when i pause the song while playing at sound level 1
the same cracking sound comes again just once and when i play it again and then when i pause it again it comes again..
i think theres a problem in the loudspeaker itself instead of the phones software...
what do u guys think abt it...

Re: 5610 playing music files with short cracking sound

well, yours problem interesting... 'cause those "sounds" are only when i listen thru the earphones. the loudspeaker is ok.

as for you, maybe your loudspeaker is damaged. but this is just a suggestion.

for rest of us, the sofware is the issue. we're all waitting new firmware from nokia.

Re: 5610 playing music files with short cracking sound

with earphones its not cracking...but the speaker does. i think its not the firmware problem...its just phone speakers are not for listening to music=) and u people should get used to the cracking...i had se 530i before nokia 5610 and se cracked too when i played music on low lvls=)... so i gues for me its not the end of the world like most others would say=))))

Re: 5610 playing music files with short cracking sound

I have the crackling sound too. I'm so disappointed! Going to speak with the online store I bought it from how likely this is a problem they will care about. Afraid they will just say they can't hear any crackling noise. And if they do what can they do about it? Maybe I will get a new phone with the same problem hehe. I have always had Nokia phones but this will be the last! Never Nokia again!
