This has been happening a lot to me lately, where between tracks or at the end of an album this really loud and rather weird noise (that I can best describe as something you might hear Michael Bay's Transformers make) happens for a solid 5 seconds. It always scares the hell out of me. I emailed SPotify support but I figured I'd try and post here as well to see if anyone else was having this issue.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have upgraded to Jelly bean now and uped to the latest Spotify version from Play. I have enabled the eq again and i havent hade the terrible noice yet. But now i got even worse problems, like spotify switsches song in the middle of a song (happend 10+ during a 35 minuts play time) but that will become a new bug report.
I have the same problem. seamst to happen more often when i have a bad connection. Scares the hell out of me to because i listen to music on high volyme.
I only use 3G, i never use wifi.
I never use offline mode.
Latest version of spotify (from Play)
Samsung Galaxy S3 latest official SW (not JB) Rooted
Operator: AllTele (virtual operator in Telias Net).
It sounds like it runns a buffer loop, like a 0,5 second loop for 3-4 seconds then a new 0,5 second loop for 2-3 seconds (and it´s really loud) in some cases it never stops. In that case i have to press stop and forward to next song and then back again.
It seems to come most when i have lower connection speed (Edge/3G) but some times also at higer (H/H+).
This started to come after the last update of the app.
I rarely use Wifi so I'm not sure if it does it on that, but It definitely happens on 3G the most and sometimes when It's switching between cell towers or dropping from 4G to 3G.
Ooh! yes i forgott that. I always use bluetooth.
Sorry for dissappearing, I recently got the OTA software update to Jelly Bean and thus far (fingers crossed) I haven't heard the noise again. If I do, I'll post about it.
I have this problem as well. Sprint GS3. I also still get silence between streamed tracks. Spotify is about to lose my subscription and I'm going to Rdio. Please fix it, you have one month...I can't take it anymore.
Yes this happens to me too on Samsung Galaxy S2. It was on ICS, and now also on custom OAKP rom (Jelly Bean built).
Noise between songs! It really sounds like very loud unpleasant buzz. I tested it and it even happens in offline mode.
Sometimes it goes for a second or two, but sometimes it gose on and wont stop and I have to close Spotify, or if I pause song and play again it will eventually go away.
It's really anoying, I'm premium user.
This never happens on any other music player I use, and I use many of those (PlayerPro, Pandora, Songza, 8tracks etc...).
We really need some help with this from Spotify team.
Between tracks I get horrible "clicky clicky clicky boom boom boom", songs don't play at all unless I go forward and back when streaming, and I'm really getting tired of it. Thanks for looking into this.
I have the same sound with my SGS 2 with the latest spotify downloaded from play with that wierd transformers sound.
For me it applies when it wants to buffer during bad connection over 3G. Is there somekind of setting to change the buffersize somehow? Really need to get this sound away as it destroys my ears whenever it pops up with the high volume.
Are any of you using equalizer of some kind?
I'm having the same problem (also on SGS2), at the same time/situation (going from 3G to lower).
I think it's caused by buffering problems due to slowed connectivity, possibly exacerbated by an equalizer.
Personally I'm using the Equalizer app, and I had never had any problems until recently.
I experience the problem with the EQ, without the EQ, on the stock Samsung ROM, on BlazerROM, and on CM10.
Out of interest what EQ are you using?
Ok so it seems like Spotify and equalizer apps just don't get along.
Although I hadn't had any problems until recently.
Had this problem too. It occurs wen your 3g is switching to 2g (your data). Wanted to contact spotify about it, but can not find any bug-report function.
