I bought this phone two days ago and specifically for the headphone jack too. Unfortunately, I've been having some issues with the audio. I hear a quiet but noticeable static clicking noise during quieter, less busy parts of music. It is most noticeable with solo instrument music. For example, if only single piano notes are played I can hear a static popping noise underlying those notes. The strange thing is that only the left channel is affected. I reproduced the issue with two different pairs of IEMs, my Moondrop Variations, and Fiio FH3s. This happens across any app that plays audio. The issue does not occur with AT-M50x over-the-ear headphones. In addition, I notice that audio playback occasionally completely stops for 2 seconds if I increase the volume with the volume rocker.
