I have exactly the same issue after the last update! It seems that they have some new algorithm to 'fade out' the volume when it detects sharp increases in environmental sound - this is their way of dealing with wind noise. However, this is a <edit> disaster and in my opinion makes this feature unusable for me because the constant fading in and out of ambient sound volume makes it extremely difficult for me to be aware of my surroundings! This is completely boneheaded, stupid update that completely breaks one of this product's major selling features. The kneejerk reaction that Samsung reps in here have of telling us to get replacements shows just how little they know about their own products, and don't actually care about solving any problems. SAMSUNG: <edit>. RESTORE THIS FEATURE TO HOW IT WAS BEFORE, AND STOP THE AMBIENT SOUND MODE FROM FADING DOWN THE VOLUME. WE CANNOT KEEP TRACK OF OUR SURROUNDINGS IF THE BUDS ARE CONSTANTLY CHANGING THE VOLUME.
