I hope you can help me. I noticed today that my iPod 5.5G has some kind of high-pitched-noise, which can only be heard when you almost put your ear on the iPod when it´s on. I heard about this "problem" with the 2nd gen Nanos, but never with the 5.5G. As i said, it´s a very high frequency kind of noise, and I guess some (older) people wont even hear it, but its definitely there and noticeable from a very very short distance. It´s like this sound, but much quieter, and only noticeable when you literally put your ear right onto the iPod: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VVYxwRnWJo Does your 5.5G or 5G has this noise?
