    I went into Verizon today with some headphones but there was too much ambient noise so I wasn't able to tell. Unfortunately, I forgot to bring some in ear monitors which would have helped. The good news is I was able to hear the whine on the Bionic even with the ambient noise but no noise on the RAZR. However, I wouldn't say for sure the RAZR doesn't suffer from the same problem until I can use it in a quieter environment.

    So you are saying worst case scenario it's at least not nearly as bad IF present at all?

    Correct. I will try and go back either tomorrow or the next day with some headphones better suited to a noisy environment.

    Ok, so I went into Verizon again today with some in ear monitors. I tested 3 phones by playing music and lowering the volume all the way and also by changing the ringer volume. Note: Clicks when music started playing/paused and when changing ringer volume were audible on all 3 phones.

    First up was my own OG Droid. I noticed no high pitched sound, only a slight hiss which as I recall has always been present. No big deal whatsoever. Second I tested the Bionic. Needless to say, it failed miserably. I still can't believe this slipped by QC. Third, I went for the RAZR. Good news! No high pitched noise! All I was able to hear was a slight hiss and a tiny bit of crackling almost like a needle on a record with no music.

    So, I can confirm that in the test unit at my local Verizon, the RAZR has NO headphone whine. All that was audible was a normal hiss that can be heard on every smartphone I've owned/tested. I'd say if the Bionic was a 10 in audible noise the RAZR would have to be a 2 or 3. Remember, I tested this with in ear headphones, so if you're going to be using over the ear headphones or some buds, the noise will probably be even less audible.
