Popping sound during volume adjustment.

When adjusting the volume "up" I'm hearing a "popping" noise. It's not loud, but noticable.

Anyone else having this problem?

Yes.  It happens sometimes - not always.  While I don't like it, it doesn't really bother me all that much.

I thought I would post on this since I have noticed this as well. 


When adjusting the volume up/down with songs that have predominant contant bass frequencies (organ music... though, surprisingly not all organ music) the playback has a pop/crackling/dropout while adjusting the volume.  Only seems to happen when adjusting the volume on these types of tracks.  It's not a huge deal, as it only happens on certain tracks when actively adjusting the volume.



Songs that produce the popping on adjustment: Host of the Seraphim (Dead can Dance), Ave Maria (Mary Jane Newman)

Basically organ music, in the cases I've noticed.


Headphones used: Sennheiser CX 300 II

Not sure if this is fixable by firmware or not.  Anyone else replicate?  I can try to find some other more mainstream tracks that replicate this...
