Google has released its Pixel Buds headphones in the UK, but a flaw with the product has not been fixed.
When the Pixel Buds were released in the US in April, several people complained that they could hear a persistent "hissing" or static sound when the earbuds were playing music.
The high-frequency noise appears to be outside the range of hearing for some wearers, and not everybody can hear it.
Google told the BBC that instances of distortion were "very rare" and it hoped to fix it in a future software update.
BBC Click's Chris Fox was putting the Google Pixel buds to the test - along with the Apple AirPods Pro and Sony WF-1000XM3 earbuds - when he noticed the Pixel Buds "hissing".
