I have an LG Nexus 4, Android version 4.4.4, not rooted. I've noticed that when I pause, change songs, or the song transitions to the next one while the screen is off, as the song fades/cuts, I can hear this annoying static sound in my earphones which eventually disappears. I tried pausing and changing songs while screen is on and I didn't encounter any of that annoying sound. Recreated the scenario in my stock music player (Google Play Music) and I didn't encounter it as well. Used my earphones on another device (not 4.4.4 though) and static is not present. Setting the audio buffer size to +750ms and the audio thread priority to the highest option didn't work. Anyone here who encountered the same issue? Any recommendations?
