    It was definitely not there all the time with the previous releases and there is nothing wrong with your hardware. I watch a lot of TV shows on my phone cause I take the train to work and during the quiet sections it's obvious there is an annoying hiss now whereas before there wasn't. Can't believe we have to go through this crap again, pathetic!

    Yep my hiss is back. Very frustrating. Makes it very annoying to listen to music. Any quiet between songs and the high pitch squeal/hiss is there. Please fix this ASAP!!!

    Try downloading "AnEq equalizer free", go to system settings, sounds, music effects, apply the new eq.... It will help some with the issue... Least it did for me... Might need to adjust the eq a little as well

    If anyone who does have the issue decides to try a factory reset to fix, please report the results here. Thanks!

    I might be completely wrong but I remember it being said that originally they "fixed" this problem by lowering the maximum volume on the device. They reset the max volume to default in ICS, so that's why its back.

    The problem is back for me as well. Noticed it immediately after the upgrade last Friday, and has been constantly noticeable in both voice calls and when listening to music. Tried many different pairs of headphones, adjusted every volume setting I could find, cleaned the headphone jack and it will not go away.

    I finally called Verizon today and they are issuing me a warranty replacement, even though I am a few days out of warranty (glad I didn't wait any longer to call!). I'll try a hard reset on my existing device if I have time, and let you know what happens.

    *Edit* - It's a very high-pitched whine. Almost sounds like brakes squealing. And it's there constantly whenever there is sound being sent to the headphone jack. Once I hangup a call or turn off music, the noise will cease 2-3 seconds after.

    Wow. I'm also dealing with a very annoying hiss when making calls since the ICS upgrade. I'm about 30 day's outside of warranty too. Hope verizon can take care of me.

    I just talked to some dude from VZW, he wanted to send me a CLNR to resolve a SOFTWARE issue.
    And VZW wonders why I keep telling them I'm heading to Sprint or TMo once my contract is up next September.

    I tried factory reset, but didn't work. The hiss was still there.

    I solved the issue on my phone. I realized that my audio sounded too bassy, so I checked the settings under:

    Sound>Audio Effects>Wired Audio Device

    For some reason Enable Audio Effects was switched on, I turned this off and the problem went away.
