View Full Version : Sound glitches issue
I'm having issues with my mp3 files on my J3 :
some of them have sound glitches at the end (like a loud "click" on one ear) whereas they play fine on my computer.
I tried to reinstall the firmware (1.26) but it didn't work
Thanks in advance for your help.
Odd. Could you upload one so we can test it?

wait until the very end.
Really weird, i don't hear it at all. Tested on my J3 and my computer.
Hopefully someone else can test it, too.
Haven't tried it on my J3 yet, but using Winamp on the PC it sounds fine through my pretty good Altec-Lansing speakers. Perhaps something more specific would be apparent through headphones. I'll give it a try a bit later.
Don't hear what you're describing so far, anyway, at least not on thePC.
Anyway, I do see that it was encoded using itunes 9.0.2 (in the comment), and is 192kbps (CBR) but shows as "co-stereo", rather than just "stereo" as I'd expect to see. Don't know if this is relevant.
First of all, Thanks for your replies
I just realized that the file on my computer isn't exactly the same that the one in the link (mine has 2 sec more) although they have the same cover and their source is the same site.
Here is the glitched file : http://www.mediafire.com/?ggow40r5yyvdz5b
Anyway, i tried the other file and it seemed clean (like you said).
Otherwise i have some other files with that issue but it happens randomly on these.
no glitch on my pc, not tried on the j3 yet.
Haven't tried it on my J3 either, but try recopying the file if you haven't already?
Yes, i tried to recopy the file but the glitch is still there [thumbdwn].
Make sure to click on the 2nd link I posted (instead of the 1st one).
Hm, I've tried it on my J3 and it seems to be fine. Less than a second before the track ends, there's a bit of static in the right ear. I've heard similar artifacts on some of my other songs, also at the very end, but it's really minor and I don't mind it too much. Actually, to be honest, I've always just thought it was something wrong with my file - some noise that got in there in between tracks during the ripping process or whatever. I always have a little bit of crossover turned on on my computer anyways, so I can't tell.
Granted, I changed the tag of your song around a little bit before copying it onto my J3 (I'm quite sure this doesn't matter but it does take away from the "credibility" of my test), because I think I'm going to keep this song on my J3. I hope you don't mind, and if not, thanks for inadvertently sharing this song^^
Yeah, these artifacts really annoy me because sometimes they are very loud.
(it's really strange because I don't see any artifact on softwares like "audacity")
No problem, you can keep the song ;)
could it just be the mp effect or eq going a bit erratic when the static pops?
mp being prime suspect as it tends to boost things it shouldnt.
Nope, I tried with a flat EQ and no effects : the glitches are still there [mad]
ah! i heard some similar things too... dude, i can explain why!... if the soung goes softer at the end, something similar happened to some of my songs!...
I still don't hear it. Maybe you could try getting the same song in another format and see if it's the same?
I posted 2 links for the song, the first one is clean but the second one has the glitch. Try the 2nd one on your J3 if you haven't.
I tried them both. Nothing [confused]
Hm, that's strange. It's definitely there for me, on the second track (though, once again, I personally could live with it). To the OP: Even though Audacity doesn't show a sound at the end, have you tried cutting off the end of the track anyways?
:D And thanks for the song.
if the soung goes softer at the end
gapless playback issue? or track fade in getting confused?
Maybe he means if the song gets quieter, then you can hear that sound, which seems to be the case in this sound "glitch". It's not really an explanation though, especially since I'm not sure if I have any tracks that don't end in something softer (namely a few seconds of silence).
