ARCHIVE: Cell phone + Speaker disturbance

Sat. Apr 8th 2006, 07:33pm:

I experience this problem myself on a daily basis and found more info on Ask Slashdot. The author asks "Everyone has been sitting at their desk... getting work done... then... BZZZPT... BZZTP..BTT.. BZZZZZZZZPTT... your cell phone interferes with your desktop speakers playing 4 times the volume of your music... Is there anyway to avoid mobile phones interfering with speakers? Are there speakers available that are shielded from this type of interference?"

Basically, GSM phones using TDMA have this problem when speaker wires are too long, the phone's too close to speakers, and the speakers are cheap.
