This is exactly what I'm talking about, you can only hear it when there is something playing.It happens on mine, but sounds more like cell signal interference or some other electrical interference than crackling from the headphone jack.
I don't notice it when listening to music or watching video. It's quiet and I only hear it when no sound is actually coming through the headphones.
Not sure if that's the same thing you're talking about...
i think this is earpod related because I just tried using my sony mdr v6 and no crackling at all when I spin the connector
Happens to my Bose ones too.
happens to my earpods as well.It appears to be certain headphones. Happens on my earPods, but not my Beats.
