Default Music Playback gaps when running just about any application...

Hello, I am new to this forum and new to Android. I just purchased a Galaxy Note and I love it for the most part. The only thing that is bugging me is that when I am playing music and I start any application I can listen a very short audio gap which is really annoying. Is anybody else experiencing anything like this? I already tried different Android music player apps, but no luck yet... I am a music lover and all of my MP3's are at 320kbps and I own expensive earbuds. It sucks that I can't hear them without any issues like on my iphone.

i use the stock player and full version of poweramp and both are good players, i noticed gaps before when i was using a class 4 32 Gb sandisk but it is now gone when i replaced it with class 10 32 Gb samsung micro sd card. i'm not sure though if this is the reason. i have not tried sotring my music in the internal memory. i have about 24 Gb of music in my external memory. and btw have you installed voodoo louder by supermercurio? it's an amazing audio enhancer for the note.

Thanks so much for your reply. I will give a try to the voodoo louder today. However, I found out what the issue is. I am sure somebody else might experience it so this is how I troubleshot and solved it:

Today I tested copying my music to the internal telephone memory (I was using the external 32 GB SD card) but the result was exactly the same. Tried itunes music format at 320kpbs instead of MP3 at 320 kbps, but same results. Tried to delete almost 80% of the songs (thinking the library was too big), and the gaps were still there.
Then all of the sudden I started noticing that the audio gaps only happened when I opened an application and also when I selected something on the internet browser. That game me some insights but I actually decided to went through all the settings one by one until I found the solution, if any. Turns out, by going to settings, sound, and disabling the stupid "audible selection" fixed the issue. Don't need stupid sounds when making a selection as long as my music plays fine!

I love my Galaxy Note now! can listen to music and open and run whatever I want without those audio gaps that I really hated.

Hey there, I am experiencing the EXACT same issue while playing music with headphones on the Note. Disabled Audible Selection, and other settings which make a feedback sound, and for a while, I didn't notice the spike in volume (or gap as you call it). I am hearing it again though. I am wondering if it is software or hardware - need some more help!

In relation to this try also the settings in PowerAMP that increase thread priority for PowerAMP, prevent it's service from being unloaded by the system, and increase the size of buffering it uses.

So fast forward two years and I am having the same issues on my Galaxy Note 2 running 4.3 - seems to happen more frequently while the phone is asleep.

seems to happen when the phone is trying to do other things. I would really like the phone to prioritize audio playback over all other tasks when it's playing something.
