    My X50 does the same thing but i noticed that After it felt to the floor, i started a topic on this and you can listen to the little hum. i noticed that when you put the display in fully dark mode the little hum disapears and if you put the display on min and med brightness the little hum will not be as strong as on max brightness. Heres the link im talking about http://www.radardetector.net/viewtop...648&highlight=

    I just got back from calling Escort i explained the problem. I was surprised, i didnt waited a second and they were really friendly. They said it was not normal and i would be better to ship my unit there, they gaved me a service order number and registered me too. Ill keep you posted :wink:

    When theres no noise around can you ear it without puting your ear close to it? Try to put the display to fully dark and listen, mine didnt had any sound when it was in fully dark. People said to me that their X50s/RX65s are leaky no sound at all so its not ok. Can you try these tests and post with what ur coming? im sure your experiencing the same problem.

    I said this to myself too, it seemed to be working properly and receiving well but this little sound isnt normal. I wanted to be Sure it was working properly. If you get the idea of sending it, wait till i get mine back, ill keep you posted with what they said.
