I bought a Fuze on August 1, and had it for a week and a half of problem-free operation. Then, out of the blue, I started getting these horrible popping noises when I was listening to music. Thinking that I simply had a bad Fuze, I returned it and exchanged it for a new one. The same thing happened: I had it for a week and a half, and then my music would have popping noises in it. Really unlistenable.
Now, I updated to the latest firmware before this happened, so it can’t be because of that. I’ve seen posts on this forum saying that it’s the headphones’ fault, and I know that they aren’t the problem. I use the equalizer to boost the bass, but not by much at all - if the equalizer is the problem (which I doubt), I’ll just get a different player (not an iPod or Zune, though). I shouldn’t have to listen to music in an inferior way in order for my Fuze to work.
Please help me with this; apart from this, I love the Fuze and I would hate to replace it.
