    I have the same issue from time to time. This may sound weird and I read it online and it actually works. Seems like small particles get into the earpiece and cause this issue, I basically sucked on the earpiece and it worked great again. I later tried a suction method with a hand held blow bulb I use the clean off my PC keyboard. This worked too. Honestly I don't think this issue should happen with this phone.

    Re: problem with earpiece

    Just a random suggestion that used to work on older phones. Is WiFi on while you are using it? Turn it off and see if it still happens.

    Glad I'm not the only one. I've been having this problem as well. The louder the earpiece is, the more pronounced it is. It sounds like a buzzing noise every time someone speaks, and is more pronounced at various frequencies. I'm thinking of trying to exchange it tomorrow. Anyone else with this problem?

    I tried sucking on the speaker area, tried shooting some compressed air in there, and even tried vacuuming it out with the extension on my vacuum cleaner. None of those seems to help. I almost sounds like a blown speaker, but much milder than that. It sounds more like something is rattling inside or loose causing it to make a buzz sound sort of like a bee or fly as sounds come through. Ugh...

    Thank God I'm not the ONLY one with this issue. I've gone though 4 Razr Maxx HD units. All have had this issue. Might work fine for a few days then suddenly if I turn the volume much past half way it will distort. Sounding like the speaker is broken. I've tried compressed air to no avail. VZW might end up having to get me into another phone if this keeps up.

    HAHA! I don't suck my phones! I blow them. But really that doesn't even help. I've had this happen over time with my Motorola Bionic but it's usually a while after owning it. Not with days-weeks.

    Sounds like (no pun intended) Motor has got to get off their button and fix thess
    issues. Why the hell would FOUR phones have the same issues... POOR QUALITY
    CONTROL in either the original manufacturing process or refurbishment.

    This is not the way Android is going to beat Apple!

    same problem...

    Yeah I've had 5 razr m's in the past 3 months, all with the same static hissing in the earpiece. It usually take a few days to a week to kick in. but without fail it will. The wired stereo thing does nothing, neither does sucking or blowing on it. Kind of a bummer considering how sweet of a phone it is...any other ideas?
