Owners of HTC Rezound having problems with interference when using headphones

Owners of HTC Rezound having problems with interference when using headphones
With its Beats Audio by Dre logo on the back of the device, the now iconic red headphones and the special audio technology built in the phone, the HTC Rezound is designed for those who put audio quality above everything else. As Verizon's first Beats Audio phone, there was some pressure on Big Red to have a clean launch with no problems, especially in the audio department.

Having said that, of course it would turn out that some users of the HTC Rezound would have a complaint about the sound of the phone. According to those who have had problems with the model, some type of static interference is coming out through any make of headphones plugged into the 3.5mm phone jack; even the special Beats by Dre phones that come with the handset are picking up the interference. And since the annoying sound can be replicated by streaming new tunes or when playing stored ones, the static and interference apparently have nothing to do with the Beats Audio technology. Some are guessing that the problem has to do with activating the phone's 4G service while others hear the sound no matter whether they are on 4G or 3G.

Not all HTC Rezound users have had this problem, but if you do suffer from it, drop us a comment in the box below and let us know what steps you have taken to try to inform HTC and Verizon about the interference and static. If enough HTC Rezound owners complain, some sort of patch will have to be provided by HTC and Verizon. After all, it doesn't look good to have your top audio-centric smartphone laid up by an audio problem.

Given that it is \'beats\' audio, you might want to revise the opening sentence to say \"those who put poor audio quality above everything else.\"

Problems with an HTC Device? No way, really? Really? Really? Or is the fact that HTC wasted an effort to do something good but instead partnered with Beats by Dr. Dre?

i think HTC acquiring Beats by Dre was a great move. Beats has one of the best audio quality around and is very popular too. So tell me, what is your phone? and I will tell you what its problem(s) is/are..

"the HTC Rezound is designed for those who put audio quality above everything else." ...erm? Audiophiles don't use Beats or any other commercial shit like Soul by Ludacris! And never will! These are just pure commercial gimmicks for hipsters who make no difference between 128 and 320kbps , crappy sound with overpowering bass, poor mids and highs!

why do people rant about cellphone problems? all phones have their own issues.. it just depends on the user on how they will handle them..

beats by dre headphones aren't even all that great, just a gimmick to get $200 or more from you.

There is a company named Cowon, they make an android MP3 player called the D3 Plenue, it actually has a mic and speaker like a cellphone, if it were a full fledged phone, IT would be the audiophile phone. Beats? nahhh not high end.

Well, not gonna pretend that I KNOW they are better than Beats stuff, but I recently got a pair of the Philips The Stretch headphones (not in ear, but still) and they are pretty incredible for the price...I think they are just as good in most way, maybe almost as good/better in a couple ways, compared to similar Beats models. They are way more durable for sure. Sound amazing. Look good. Comfortable as hell. Oh and the MSRP is $99.99. But I got mine from Newegg on sale for $29.99. Beat that BEATS. I would argue it cant be done. Even at $99, I think they are a better deal than similarly priced Beats. Plus they get great reviews.
