    Hi, I just got my new tMBP 15" and I noticed that when I play any audio (YouTube, Spotify, videos, etc) I can hear a light buzzing sound coming from both speakers, especially when the volume is very low. The audio itself sounds fine but I can definitely hear this buzzing and, having never owned a MBP before, I don't know if it's normal or not.
    Have you also noticed something similar?

    Does it change when you have the charger attached vs. not attached?

    No, it's still present. It's like, as soon as I start any audio playback, and the speakers "activate", I can hear it. It's not very loud and it doesn't change in intensity if I increase the volume.

    That sounds like the speakers are picking up some sort of electrical noise from the surrounding circuitry. You might want to take it in and see what Apple says.

    You can test and compare another tMBP 2016 (in the Apple Store for example) and if it works good you can return/exchange your machine...
