Sharp sounds when turning on/off speakers

I have recently purchased two G ones and a F one.

I am very pleased with listening to them. I am however a bit suprised that such great devices have to make sharp sounds when they're turned on/off. Why isn't the speaker muted during the short turn on/off moment?

It's a quite sharp and unpleasent sound and doesn't seem necessecary in such otherwise high quality products.

Hello Peter,

Thank you for your question and feedback. Some sort of turn on/off noises are typical for most devices that have power amplifiers inside them. Some people find them more obtrusive than others, for example depending on the background noise level of the listening space. We will look into making our speakers more silent ( :o ) in the future!
