    Mine (new production unit) has a buzz when off, very low in level, probably not enough to disturb sleep. However, if there was a bug/enh for this to be fixed, I'd vote for it. It would be great if this could be fixed in software.

    Hum, Buzz & Suitability as an Alarm Clock

    You mean coming from the speakers right? Yes, we know about that and can
    fix it in software :-)

    I love having everything software controlled :-)

    By buzz, do you mean a very low level hiss coming from the speakers?

    As other posters had mentioned, is it sensitive to cell phone chatter ?
    I'm having my phone on 24/7 due to my jobb, so if used as alarm clock the BOOM could be near my mobile phone.

    You now what sound i'm meaning the chatter you hear in you crummy PC speakers when your cell is "phoning home" or whatever it does time to time to stay conected with base.

    Boy! do I know what you're talking about. I used to work on IP Phones, and
    lemme tell you, ECM microphones can be really sensitive to this noise.

    I tested Boom with a few cell phones right up on the boom, with no issues.
    I can't guarantee that under every condition it will be silent, I have never
    been able to induce any audible noise induced by consumer RF devices. (I
    put in some special RF components explicitly for rejecting RF noise at the
    inputs/outputs).

    I haven't tested thoroughly, but my Boom isn't sensitive to chatter. My PC speakers and speakers in the main system do chatter if the phone is close enough, but I couldn't make the Boom chatter no matter how close the phone was.

    I turned the phone on/off multiple times, which always triggers the other devices, and even once with the phone sitting on the power brick itself. Not a peep. I never had the problem with Sprint (CDMA network), but switched to ATT (GSM network) and started noticing it.

    I've had my phone up against the Boom many a night whilst I've spent long periods listening on headphones and I've never heard the Boom make the noise you refer to.

    I've had a Boom for nearly two months. In this time it has always been situated next to my bed. When I am in bed it is two feet from my head. I've used it a lot. I've never noticed any extraneous noise emitting from the speakers (hum, buzz, mobile phone chatter... or anything!). Unless I've deliberately called up music or speech it has been entirely silent.

    Hopefully that's clear.

    I purposely put my ATT blackberry (GPRS/EDGE) in direct contact with the top, bottom, and all sides of the boom and forced e-mail reconcilliatoin as well as calling it (when the bb was in quiet mode so no ring or vibrate) and could not detect any sound from the boom at all - ever.

    By buzz, I did mean hiss...

    In response to the question above, I did mean a low level, constant hiss from both speakers. I'm sure it is the same as what others have noticed.
