recently bought the new MBP 13 2020 (10th gen i7 , 32GB ram , 1TB ) and it has been working perfectly fine but it makes a pop sound everytime I play something related to audio or video on Youtube/Apple Music /spotify ...

even when i muted the volume i can hear the popping sound

Yesterday I downloaded the last update 10.15.6 and still the speakers makes popping sound

i have tried to use resting SMC & nvram but none of them ended up fixing the issue

Do you use the headphone jack or do you mean the speakers itself. The former is known to doing a „popping sound„. If i am not mistaken it is because the headphone jack is turned on and of every time the input changes - which was not the case for older MacBooks. For the speakers itself I do sometimes get some „rattling“ from the right speaker at specific frequencites but I wouldn’t describe it as „popping“.

I mean the speaker its self


I tried this temporary solution :

Knock on wood, it seems mine doesn't have this issue. I'm also using it for audio production. Hope it's not something that can happen after a while. But damn, it's like playing the lottery with macbooks. You never know what kind of problems you will "win" with yours.

I have some popping sound on my MBP 13 2020 10gen (both with headphones and via speakers), but it is so minor, that I didn't guess I had it)

Hm really strange, as said I don't have this popping sound, but after a few days my "faulty" right speaker really bothers me (rattling at specific frequencies). I also get a "rattling" sound when "playing menu sounds" and it is bugging me. I guess I have to file a repair. Does anyone know if repairing the speakers require a full top case replacement?
