I have read a few posts here re backgorund noise, with some describing it as a “river” like noise, and others saying it is so loud as to make the unit unusable.
I have had the BB for a long time now, with no use (haha it still has the plastic on the screen). I bought it, but then changed direction and had no need until recently when I decided to revisit using it again.
It is probably out of warranty, so I’ll proably have no recourse that way, but I do notice a low level hiss, admittedly when levels are high. The question I have is: is this level of background hissing noise normal for all BB units…(bearing in mind the “extreme” levels mentioned by other users)?
The other issue I notice is when using headphones, there is also digital noises (similar to USB noises from a laptop when using USB audio interfaces)…again when level is low (say aout 30%) not really noticeable, but take the headphone to say 70% and it is VERY intrusive. Again just asking is this normal?
Although as it is probably out of warranty (even with no real use) I guess I will be stuck with it, but I would still like to clarify things.
