    All prior attempts failed. Knee thumping worked. Most likely cause was frequent dropping of device. Thanks

    Hi,

    Hope you guys might still be subscribed to this thread. Please don't whack your phones, that may work by jiggling the electronics, but it is hardly a solution. I had this exact problem, and investigated for weeks until I finally found the solution. Check your headphone plug. If it has 2 rings, it does not have a mic connector. If it has 3 rings, it does. All Android devices expect to have 3 rings on the plug. The interference you are hearing is the mic trying to communicate with your non-existent mic on your headphones. Try any set of headphones sold with a button on the wire, ones which come with a mic. Check the plug, you will see 3 rings. There will be no interference.

    Here is a picture of the rings so that you know what I am talking about :
