Alright. I don't know if this is normal or not.
First of all, it is not a static noise. It is a very minor annoyance.
When you don't turn the knob for awhile, and as soon as you start turning, it seems a bit sticky and it physically makes a clicking/rubbing noise as if it is against some type of friction. However, it goes away right after until you leave the volume knob steady again and wait awhile.
It was ok when I first bought it and now that I had a for a week I start to notice that. Everytime I need to make a small volume adjustment it seems to have this clicking/rubbing/friction noise. Again, it's not a static hiss or anything.
If this is your problem:
Solution 1 works perfectly for me :)
