    Good god. What a long winded video.

    Too long, didn't watch: there may be buzzing on super high quality headphones. We don't know yet, and most of us don't even use high enough quality headphones to ever notice.

    I plugged my Shure 846s into my 6S+ to check using the same method and heard nothing.

    Lets stop with the 'gates'. Honestly it's just annoying and attention seeking.

    Well, let's stop Apple making them. Honestly it's just annoying if you upgrade when previous iPhones were fine.

    Not everything can be a scandal. Furthermore, it trivalizes actual scandals when you slap the 'gate' suffix on every time someone finds something they don't like.

    I think you are just nitpicking and refusing to see what the actual problem here is. Audio quality decrease.

    Yea I wish we could just filter out any thread with the term gate in it. If people want us to take their issue seriously than this is not the way to go about it.

    Even Steve Jobs used the word "antennagate".

    I wish we could filter this nonsense.

    What you mad that people don't like the gate term for every issue that affects less than 1% of the people? Do you even have multi balanced armature earphones? Are you just posting this to get attention? Haven't seen any other posts in this forum about this issue.

    Maybe post a little more facts in your post. Don't just link to a video and add gate into the title.

    So, the video basically says it's not a problem for most people, only with really sensitive expensive headphones. Will be interesting to see if there is an issue with electrical isolation - we've seen sweat causing issues with iphones that they fixed, pressure of speakers needing to be fixed, etc. DO the teardowns show different hardware/setup from the 6?

    there's always isolating the phone, using BT to see if it's the hardware/software - (airfoil too to a mac?)

    Apparently my Bose and Thinksound earphones aren't 'balanced' enough in their 'armatures' for this issue to be an issue. Or they're too highly insensitive. :p
