Some iPhone X users say they’re experiencing audio issues

Some iPhone X are apparently experiencing "crackling" or "buzzing" sounds coming from the smartphone's front-facing earpiece speaker at high volumes. Over two dozen users have said they are affected in a MacRumors discussion topic about the matter, while similar reports have surfaced on Twitter and Reddit since the smartphone launched.

MacRumors says that, on affected devices, the crackling sounds occur with any kind of audio playback, including phone calls, music, videos with sound, alarms, and ringtones. The issue doesn't appear to be limited to any specific iPhone X configuration or iOS version. 

I finally received my iPhone X on Friday and have been using it constantly since. I’ve experienced no audio problems. Nor have I experienced any of the “green line on display” issues. Have you?
