    No such issues on mine. The only thing I notice is a slight cracking on some songs when volume is at 28-30. Not too noticable and only with a very few songs. I think that's pretty normal behaviour. Mine is also from germany.

    Does it crack on all volumes?

    This happened to me too, going to attempt to return tomorrow. I tried to figure the cause out and nothing. Hard resetting didn't help either.

    I had the same issue with my White 920, I did a hard reset and that bricked the phone. I got it replaced at the ATT store. Speaker is much better now.

    Mine seems to crackle completely randomly when it chimes. For some reason the ring tones work but the text tones will randomly cut in and out.

    Same problem here on a white 920 after only one day's use.

    Was all ok until I played a you tube video and the sound cut out after about 3 seconds.

    After that, no sound on the phone at all. No key press clicks, tones, ringtones - nothing!!!

    I did a factory reset, but still to no avail.

    Discovered that lightly tapping the bottom of the phone brought it back,but keeps intermittently breaking up.

    I am on my second 920 now.

    The first had an issue with data over 3G, battery problems and terrible sound quality over Bluetooth.

    All of these were cured with the second phone, but now this new problem.

    I am really beginning to doubt the reliability and quality of these units.

    I am having a few issues with mine. at the start or end of some sounds it makes a slight cracking noise. The sort you get if you have a dud speaker. I played some music on it though and that was fine.

    I think I solved the issue.. Plug in your headset, than go to settings/audio/enhance,ents/audio leveling off. Plug uot headset and play music through speakers....

    I find the volume for the speakers on the Lumia on the low side when on a call.
