Popping\Crackling in either downloaded or streamed music

Status: Not An Issue

I recently started listening to Todrick Hall's new album Straight Outta Oz.  It doesn't matter what device I used, whether it is my phone (Samsung S4), my work computer, or my home computer.  I will get crackling and popping sound on the same songs from this album at the very least.  I have not expained to other artist or albums as of yet.   I thought it was maybe the download so I tried various quality values and I still get the same issue.  I have done uninstalls and reinstalls and various troubleshooting on the Spotify community with no avail.  Can anyone help with this as it frustrating to listen to this album with all the artifact noise?

 

Thank you, 

Thanas

 If it's the same songs, and from any device at any quality my conclusion would be that it's probably a problem with either the song it self or how Spotify is download/streaming it to you. Which would be out of our control, but that's just a hunch.

Yes I noticed this today that I added the album to my playlist, its horrible, I thought my speakers were broken, so plugged in headphones and same deal, then realized it was just todricks music 😞

Same issue with same album.

It seems like a high gain was added to this album and it's ruining the quality on louder parts of each song. I have the same problem.

Adjusting the levels down in the Equaliser helps on some tracks, but even at the lowest levels across the board several tracks (for example, Papi) come through with intense feedback even at the lowest playback volume.

 

Tried with Bose soundbar and apple factory earbuds on both wi-fi and download.

 

Love this album. Would love a suggestion for how to improve the sound on Spotify. Thanks.

I realized that for me it's just the deluxe album. Search "Straight Outta Oz" and under albums you should see "Straight Outta Oz" and "Straight Outta Oz (Deluxe Edition)". For me, everything in the standard edition is fine.

Thank you! That worked perfectly for me.
