    I have it....mine is definitely not white noise. Its muffled. I took a few videos at my business yesterday and there's music in the background and you can't even make out the song. I'm guessing some people are suffering from bad speakers and I happen to be one of them. I would chalk this up to a hardware issue...Think I'm going to call Google and do an exchange.

    Called Google and they are sending me a new one out...Its really only on audio playback after recording a video. There's no way this can be normal otherwise tons of people would be complaining about it.

    I mean other wise besides the hissing sound I have no other real issues...and would hate to take a chance in getting one with a screen issue, etc...Ya just can't win these days. Hopefully new one doesn't have the issue. However I don't think its software related.
