has anyone had the ear experience while talking on the Iphone 5 ?


iPhone 5, iOS 6

    FYI  the noise cancelling on the iphone 5 causes a pressure sensation in the ear and can cause a poping sensation also, search noise cancelling on macrumors.com

    Given that I couldn't find anything on macrumors or by doing a Google search, I'm guessing it's not a very common problem. If your ears are popping, you might want to consult your doctor. You may have a congestion or ear wax problem.

    Try Macrumors again and search under fourms, search for "

    Go to first new post Iphone 5 noise cancellation in speaker? and read the comments

    YES!!! I thought I was crazy because I haven't had ear pressure issues since I was a kid and it was only when swimming. I got my Iphone 5 yesterday and everytime I talk on it, the pressure builds up in my ears so bad. I have to talk on speaker or tell whoever to hold on while I lower the phone to get my ears to pop and back to normal. I "TEST CALLED" several people to confirm that it was the phone...and sure enough, every time I talked with it up to my ear, the issues started back... :/ It is NOT congestion or earwax problems!

    If I could choose, I prefer to disable this function - noise cancellation unless apple releases iSO 6.1 or other method to mininize the effect.  I am now stupid to cover the rear microphone to try to rule out this weird experience.

    I have this too!  Is there anything that can be done to correct it?

  • Hooooon Level 1 (5 points)

    My simple way to solve it is by covering the microphone at the back by my index finger!

  • jlstobi Level 1 (0 points)

    If covering that ittle mic helps, you solved a lot of users ear issues.  I'm coveing the mic with a piece of scotch tape, which should do the same a covering it with a finger.  Fot those that don't know, the mic is located between the camera lense and the flash.  Thanks for the simple solution.

    I'm definitely experiencing this. I use my ears for work and like to think they're very trained and yes the phone is very irritating to the ear. Apple needs to give us the option to disable this feature...if sound waves are irritating the ear (audible or not) its NOT a good thing.

    I am experiencing the same thing with an AT&T 32gig phone.  I have called Apple and they suggested a restore and I am still experiencing this very annoying issue.  It is exactly like everyone in the macrumors is saying.  It feels like there is pressure against your ear.  I have only had this happen when driving with a constant road noise.  It must be the noise canceling like everyone is suggesting.  I would like to hear a response from an apple rep who knows a bit more about what the noise canceling is doing to the speaker next to your ear.

    Perhaps this could help you:


    Please give it a try and activate the option "Hearing Aid Mode".


    You can find it here:

    "Settings" -> "General" -> "Accessibility" -> "Hearing Aids"


    I couldn't test it yet, but I have read that activating the option "Hearing Aid Mode" should remove the curios feeling while having a call with the iPhone 5.

    Perhaps this option deactivates the microphone at the backside of the iPhone5?!

  • ChristianMoehler Level 1 (0 points)

    This is a solution - but it is not very comfortable to hold the iPhone like this.

     

    Perhaps this could help, too:

    I'm noticing a subtle vibration or pulsating noise or senastion that last about 3 seconds or so and is intermitten in the ear speaker of the iPhone 5. I have every iPhone since iPhone 1 and never experience this. You could say it does cause some pressure in the ear when it starts pulsating.

     

    It's distracting and I usually lose train of thought of what the caller is saying becuase I'm more focus on the faint sensation. My wife noticed it too when we switched phones. It's almost hipnotic, the caller on the end doesn't hear it.

     

    Those that are noticeing the issue is my discription similar to yours?
