I have a suspicion that not all Omni VI+'s have this problem. I'm
usually annoyed by this kind of thing (and traded my Centaur on a
Centurion due to noise). But I don't hear a "click" on the sidetone
keying on my exactly-one-year-old VI+. Maybe something changed in the
production, or maybe there is a lot of bad components? Maybe I'm going
deaf? (huh, what's that you said?!)
