Early 16-inch MacBook Pro complaints include speaker ‘popping’ and display ghosting

Likely to be software problem. It’s almost affecting 90% of the 16” MacBook.

Just received the 16" MBP. Already can hear popping sounds from the welcome screen by selecting random language sounds. Should I return it?

The volume and intensity of the "Pop" is highly variable. Can be really soft or loud.

depends on whether it really is software related. if software related, then still can wait.

but isnt the popping sound from a selection of softwares (FCP)~?

The popping sound sounds more like software issue than hardware.

I don't think it's related to any specific Mac software. I highly suspect it's either a hardware defect or a Mac OS bug. Will be installing bootcamp shortly, that will confirm whether it's software or hardware related.

Ok, installed bootcamp. Popping still exists but it's slightly softer on windows. Tested on YouTube with Microsoft Edge.
Apple just sent a memo to Apple Staffs to deny replacements as they claim it's a software issue. I wonder why it exists on Windows 10 then. Sounds to me like a sound card or wiring issue to 1 of the 6 speakers.

Since it can be workaround then a software fix will do.

It’s definitely a software/ driver issue. Happened before. Just wait for Apple to release software fix. No need to be alarm.
