    I can only hear two things from my N4 earpiece, jack and s**t. So no issues for me. In other news, TV's, lights, and a host of other electrical items that carry current can have low hums, buzzing, or crackling. However, two cans and a string do not exhibit this issue.

    It just sounds hollow to me, you know kind of like when you put a sea shell up to your ear. I don't notice anything on calls.

    That "buzzing and clicking" noise from the earpiece is cell network static not the earpiece. Just tested today by playing a downloaded podcast through the earpiece and same noises did not happen.

    Mine is always buzzing but you have to pay a lot of attention. Not really an issue for me but I wonder if it's taking battery juice.

    Has a cause of the buzzing been determined? I have been noticing it more and more with my phone. At first it was only very soft but it seems to have gotten slightly louder, although the volume of the buzzing seems to vary and is intermittent. I don't plan on trying to get a replacement, but it is a bit annoying at times.

    I have had this phone for two months now and have not noticed that I have a buzz in the earpiece until today. Mainly because I never sat there and listened to my phone while not on a call. Much like the rattling from shaking the phone, for me its not a problem. I have not noticed any of these "issues" until someone else brought it up.

    i went through some replacements trying to get one without the buzzing, but all of them had it. i'm just dealing with it now, it never was a huge deal to begin with but it can get kind of annoying.

    i would have never thought the rattle thing was an "issue" but i think i would have eventually noticed the buzzing thing even if someone else didnt bring it up

    Nexus 4 -- no
    Galaxy Nexus -- yes
    iPhone 4 -- yes

    Vibrant 4G -- no

    And OP is right. I would have never noticed it in any of the phones until someone told me to check.
    Jerry it could also be that that family of bees living in your beard come out every now and again and are infiltrating your phone.

    I still don't hear anything (had since 12-13-12). What exactly do you do to scope it out?

    What happened then - did anyone try for a replacement?

    I get a buzzing but only during a phone call - it's a buzzing that comes out at the same time as any sound. It's like something is vibrating with the sound.

    It's finally started to irritate me enough to start the replacement procedure even though I'm not sure if it'll be any better. Worth a try.

    It arrived a day late due to a typical TNT -up but I must have been lucky - no buzz. I'm in the UK and the phone came from Ireland (as the first one did).

    I have the same problem with the n4 i bought 2 days ago , along with the issue of a loose part near the earpiece. I was told by a friend that there was a one particular batch of n4's that all have these problems but i too am not sure whether or not getting a replacement will solve these issues

    Getting a replacement may or may not fix it. Getting one will cost you nothing. So where is the decision?

    I can hear it when I put my ear up to it and when I'm on the phone. Don't talk much, so not a big issue for me. I'm 100% happy with the rest of the phone.

    I am hearing the buzzing noise from the earpiece as well, unfortunately Not sure if I want to go with the whole replacement thing though.

    Wait....you're hearing a buzzing noise when you hold the phone to your ear when NOT on a call?????

    If you don't hear the noise when you're on a call I really have to ask how is that a problem?

    Sometimes, after a night of hard drinking -- especially double shots of tequila and Crown -- you can get a buzzing in your ears. Or is that after going to a really loud concert? I dunno...

    Anyhow, so have you been drinking before using your phone? You know you should never talk while hammered; it makes you say all kinds of crazy sh...

    I hear it more (obviously) when I'm on a call. But, I do hear this sound from the earpiece when not on a call and I put it to my ear (to test it for this tread). Never noticed that and thought it was just a call issue.
