    Morning all,
    I've had my iPod Touch over a year now and for most of that time it has had this problem. When I play certain songs (about 60% of songs), I get an almost constant clicking sound out of the right headphone. It is not a result of the headphones as I have had several pairs and all of them have had the same clicking problem. It drives me mad but this is the first time I've actually been bothered to do anything about it. Any help would be much appreciated.

    try cleaning the heaphone plug and jack. If it doesnt help try restoring as it might be a software isue.
    PS. do the songs play normaly on you pc/mac ?

    My guess is that you are playing the music too loudly. Loud volumes can crackle drivers, and it is bad.

    Cleaned it out, restored the ipod to its facotry settings and it is still there. No problem with the actual music on my PC.

    I do tend to play music loudly, but when I play it quietly now, it is still there but the clicking is quieter aswell. It is almost like it is built into the song but of course it isn't.

    You may have damaged the drivers in the earphones... If that isn't the problem, then it could be the jack itself.

    The earphones are definitely not the problem, the clicking occurs in all earphones and even when you play through ipod speakers. Therefore it won't be the jack either as I use the connector port to plug it into the speakers.

    does the clicking go away when the screen turns off?

    Will they take it back, even if the warranty has expired because it is damaged?
