    I’ve had my Xd 05 basic for a couple of months now.

    It always made some “popping” and crackling noise when listening to music.

    Sometimes it happens when I change track. And often it’s when I’m using my phone while listening (browsing).

     

    thought this was the phone. But I recently got to play with the ifi hip dac. No crackling sound.

    tried the Apple dac dongle – no crackling sound.

    Back to the Xd-05 – crackling and popping every now and then.

    Is this a known issue? Is there a fix?

    Hello, is this popping sound coming from the headset or the machine? If it’s from the machine, this is the sound of the relay

    I can hear it in the headphones.
    seems like it mostly happens when playing higher bit rates than 48 khz.

    Hi,

    This happened with me too, I solved it by accident, the stock USB cable is bad, it cannot handle hi res.
    Use another USB cable, it will be fine, and make sure the connection to your smartphone or PC or whatever is not loose.
