Sound issue on Galaxy S6 upgraded to Nougat - mnemon07 - 2017-04-17

I have Samsung galaxy s6. It just upgraded to Nougat. After the upgrade, every time i start Kodi, there is a loud static noise coming from the headphones. Internal speaker works fine. I have disabled "send low noise" option in the audio settings. The loud noise stops being when Kodi starts up, but it appears every time i switch screen or during playback. Any suggestions? Is this a known issue and new versions will address this?

So, reading some other posts relating to this. The issue is with Samsung Nugat update, disabling FLOAT in HW driver. I am sure future Kodi builds will address that. At this point, the options are either downgrade to Kodi 16 (that is what I did), or use Blutooth headphones.

This issue doesn't only occur in Kodi. It also happens with Spotify and YouTube.

Yeah - that's why we don't silently workaround it. We are not Samsung's QA department.
