    Did any new MacBook Pro owners notice a buzzing or rattling noise from the built-in speakers at specific frequencies?
    For me I have a little one around 500 Hz and then a much louder one between 1000-1200 Hz. This happens even when the volume is lower than 25% (4 out of 16 clicks).

    If anyone wants to check for themselves here is a youtube link to the frequency sweep I used, It's slow enough to determine the frequencies - post your results!

    Hoping to figure this out while we're still in the two-week return window

    This is happening to a lot of us after Windows installs. I'm pretty sure mine were permanently damaged so I exchanged my machine today.
