    On the iPhone 5, with headphones, you can hear a slight static click just before a sound it initiated-keyboard opens, music starts playing, etc. If you are on contacts and click the keypad tab(switch between keypad and contact tabs is very evident) it also happens. You can also hear it quite well from the going from the home screen to spotlight search and back-of course mute has to be off and keyboard clicks have to be enabled.


    Tried 3 different iPhone 5s, all there. 6 different headphones, all there. 4S has it but much less pronounced. Seems to be the audio amplifier turning on/off. I would have thought they could have eliminated the static popping noise a bit better.

    Why does it matter? You're wearing headphones and nobody else is being disturbed. :rolleyes:

    It's sloppy. I could care less who is disturbed other than me.

    Not yet. From what I can tell it happens on Macbooks too. It's the audio amplifier turning off to save power. Maybe with the iPhone 5 they had to put a smaller/cheaper sound amp that is not grounded as well. When you use in ear monitors it's really evident. Just go to contacts and switch to keypad back and forth. Clicking galore.
